The Mars Homestead Project – To Arrive, Survive & Thrive!

Utilizing concepts and designs from the past several decades, the Mars Homestead Project seeks to develop a unified plan for building the first habitat on Mars utilizing local materials. The ultimate goal of the project is to build a growing, permanent settlement beyond the Earth, thus allowing civilization to spread beyond the limits of our small planet.
Planning efforts of the Project are well underway after last month’s Kickoff meeting at MIT. The project is now shifting into high gear in what is being calling “Phase 1”, where initial planning documents will be generated by the multidisciplinary Program Study Team.
