What is MCP?
Mars Citizenship Portal (M.C.P) was co-founded by a group of students in 2017 at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, Canada as part of an Experiential Futures project. The concept behind M.C.P was inspired by the advancement in space exploration that were taking place at the time, and the dreams of mankind to become a multi-planetary specie. In 2018, the group who were the creators behind M.C.P pitched their prototype at The Humans to Mars Summit (H2M) and received massive media coverage. Later that year, Elon Musk the founder of SpaceX offered funding to the team to work on their prototype as part of a secret side project of SpaceX. In 2022, Elon Musk became one of the shareholders at M.C.P. When the first group of astronauts stepped foot on Mars in 2035, M.C.P became the main department at SpaceX for running application processes for those whom were interested in going to Mars. In 2067, M.C.P opened its main campus in Toronto, Canada.
