I guess:

The applicants of Mars-One project?

I will go up but I won't come down?

That's what will be going on there. The passengers will never return. No idea about the question-mark though.

There is a lot about me on the news

For example, on CNN.

I will go up in the near future

If you call 2026 near future.

Is it the old classic

A person's age in years?

I will go up but I won't come down?

Obviously, a person's age just goes up as time passes

There is a lot about me on the news

Often, if somebody dies, their age is mentioned in the news. Sometimes, in the case of celebrity, it's mentioned for any news article related to that person.

I will go up in the near future

For everybody, their age in years will change within the next year.

Alternatively, it could be just

The year it is now.
