Mars just like the Moon has fascinated different races and cultures. It was once thought to be inhabited by intelligent beings. In fact, Giovanni Schiaparelli, an astronomer studied Mars and thought he observed canals. He called them “canali” which he felt was indicative of something intelligent there. Further studies proved that these were not canals, but dust features that change over time. Participants will be involved with the mythology behind Mars and the current understanding of this fascinating planet. The culminating activity will be the building of a miniature Mars habitation depicting what it would take to live and work there.
Participants will be involved with the mythology behind Mars and the current understanding of this fascinating planet. We will delve into the robotic exploration with the eventual presence of humans living and working there.
