"This is the story of the New Human Branch Project.
The project led to the first self sustaining and self
propagating branch of the human species on Mars
making humans the first multi planetary species and
the ambassadors of life on a new world. In the early
2000s private aerospace companies started to work
where only national governments traditionally did. By
2012 several major events, including the first private
company docking with the international space station,
took place that assured that private companies would
be the future of space exploration. The New Human
Branch project started in 2012, 10 years before the
first humans step foot on Mars. The project took into
account the predictions by SpaceX and the Mars
societies, among others, that crewed missions would
take place around 2020."
