We are the first Spanish Interplanetary Agency
with the ability to test new technologies and develop
the necessary skills to live in such
a hostile environment as The Red Planet.
Here at Astroland we develop the technology
and skills necessary for living on Mars.
Because the Martian environment is very hostile with low temperatures,
strong winds and highlevels of solar radiation
which means the most suitable way of maintaining
human life isinsertion in tubes of lava or under the Martian surface.
As a first step, the agency has created station in a large cave with a depth of 1 kilometre,
thelocation of which has not been revealed in order to test new technologies
and train the skillsnecessary for settlement of a permanent human colony on Mars.
We have designed a training system following
the methodologies of the European SpaceAgency (ESA)
to train missions with crews of 10 that will have the opportunity
to experiencethe same sensations as the first astronauts
to arrive on the red plant, tackling
the samechallenges as faced in this extreme habitat.
This is an epic adventure with scientific aims but also emotional ones,
from which we hope totake new learnings in order
to improve today's society and contribute our knowledge to allowpeople
to live on other planets in the future,” added David Ceballos..
The upcoming arrival on Mars will involve the discovery
of a new world and with that thecreation of a new society;
this means a second opportunity for Humankind to learn
from themistakes made on earth and
to evolve towards a better society where we are more respectfulof each other
and our environment. We must find new responses to overcome the challenges
we’ll face on Mars.
Mars is the most accessible planet for establishing extra-terrestrial
human life (homoMarcianus), representing a second opportunity for the human race.
