We have been selected by the Mars Society to participate in a two-week mission at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in October 2021!
We will be one of the very few all-female crews to partake in this project (last one was in 2006). Our goal as Mars analog astronauts is to evaluate the scientific, social, and medical performances of women under Mars-like conditions. This research aims to provide crucial data on female performance in space exploration that is currently lacking in the literature.
They support our mission: ✔️
Amongst our supporters, we count the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 , the Pôle Léonard de Vinci , Cranfield University, AIAA (Sydney Section) Dronomy, Stellar Amenities, Mars Society Switzerland , Macquarie University , and Caeli Nova .
What is the money for?
The first 4'500 € raised through this campaign will help us cover the 6 plane tickets taking us from London to Las Vegas, one of the biggest cities close to the MDRS. (We promise not to gamble any of your money upon arrival. Scout's honor)
Once this first objective is reached, the additional donations will help us cover our staying fees at the research station. Even astronauts have to pay rent!
We are so grateful for your support
