The Earth is getting crowded, and we all know it; if you need quantifiable proof, just try to find a good parking spot at the mall around the holidays. To ensure humanity has hope beyond this increasingly stressed planet, the International Mars Science Foundation has launched the first manned mission to Mars.
As a mission partner, the National Geographic Channel asked us to lend our expertise to this historic endeavor, and we were beyond excited to accept. As the intrepid crew of the Daedalus rockets toward the red plant to establish the first permanent colony, we’ll be lending our lamentably earthbound support in any way that we can. We hope you’ll join us on this exciting interplanetary adventure!
