While it has been over half a century since the first astronaut set foot on the Moon, the historic moment never fails to fascinate us. We have long dreamt of visiting other planets in person, but this goal is harder to achieve than that of landing on the Moon. More advanced technology will be required, and we will be exposed to greater risks. If, in the not-too-distant future, humans could finally land on Mars, which is hundreds times further away than the Moon-Earth distance, how exhilarating it would be!
In the Sky Show Mars 1001, astronauts from different countries join hands to accomplish the first manned mission to Mars and strive to uncover the mysterious veil of the Red Planet. This thrilling 1001-day challenge is ready to begin!
Having walked on the Moon in the last century, we are now aiming to complete the first manned mission to Mars.
It takes about seven months to Mars. There may be various dangers on the long journey to Mars, such as solar storms. What can astronauts do if they are directly hit by a solar storm?
Mars has an average temperature of -60°C and a very thin atmosphere mostly made up of carbon dioxide. For astronauts to survive in a harsh environment like this, it is crucial for them to quickly establish a basecamp by interconnecting modules transported on the planet beforehand.
Although Mars is now drier than the driest desert on Earth, scientists found that water once flowed across its surface. To determine whether life once existed on this planet, astronauts must search for evidence of water, as well as traces of microfossils and biomarkers in the rocks.
Numerous rovers and landers have been sent to Mars to search for life and study the planet's surface and evolution. While many of them are no longer in operation, the data collected by them has paved the way for future human exploration.
