Mars Society Australia


Sending a small spacecraft into Earth orbit carrying large, reflective sails the planetary Society successfully completed a test flight in June 2015 that paved the way for a second, full-fledged solar sailing demonstration in 2017. Mars is within reach.

The MSA is undertaking comparative research and testing surface exploration strategies and technologies in renowned Mars analogue locations. Our vision is to position Australia for participation in the eventual establishment of a human presence on Mars, and to make Mars more real as a place for people everywhere.
