Human Exploration from Earth to Mars: Envisioning Becoming Interplanetary
Recent missions to Pluto and Jupiter, along with earth-observation missions lay key groundwork for humanity becoming interplanetary. Space agencies, academia and industry are working now on the technologies and missions needed to put humans on Mars in the 2030s. These explorers will rely on advanced technologies, such as spacesuits and life-support systems that can only emerge via innovation that cuts across science, exploration, and technology. Science-technology-engineering-arts-math-design (STEAMD) is essential, and it is urgent to recruit the Mars Generation, including artists, designers, poets and makers.
