Mission to Mars
Mankind’s Journey to the Red Planet

This journey is not something we are planning to do; it's something we are doing, right now, in numerous ways, combining the best of our talents, experiences and abilities in a variety of fields.

  • Robotic explorers are today orbiting the planet and driving across its surface, teaching us more about the conditions there in order to answer those scientific questions and help us prepare for human exploration.

  • Astronauts aboard the International Space Station are conducting research regarding living in space for the long durations a Mars mission will require, learning more about how to maintain both equipment and the human body during the journey.

  • Scientists and engineers are working to mature the advanced technologies that will be needed to solve the complex challenges like radiation protection and entry through the Martian atmosphere.

  • We are building the robust systems that we need to carry out the trip. Later will come in-space propulsion systems, deep-space habitats, and much more...

  • Then, we are going to build a rocket... A really big one.

Fly Over Mars in 3D!
The entire audience will fly over the surface of Mars in 3D and observe the Martian terrain up close! This is an experience you will not forget. Bring the entire family.

Join us as we tell the story of the greatest adventure on which mankind has ever embarked. We're going to Mars!
