Explore how humans can get to Mars. Use the interactives and videos to learn what accommodations will need to be in place when putting humans on Mars. Look around Mars and the outside of the spacecraft. Watch the astronauts share how they would survive, land, and explore. Lastly, see how the people will get back safely from Mars. For further learning, explore the Mission to Mars series at the bottom of the landing page.
In the ClassroomStudents can use this site to research information about how humans can land on Mars. They will gain a deep understanding of not only how it is possible, but why scientists have to make certain decisions, and why considerations need to be in place. You can use the activities for the whole class to learn about processes that astronauts go through to travel and explore another planet. Pieces of it can also be used as an anticipatory set to introduce a study of planets, space, or astronauts.
