'This film is the manifesto of the new space
Join us on a journey, the daring first human mission to the red planet and explore the challenges of surviving on Mars, a mysterious world that once had oceans, rivers and may have harboured simple life. Such a discovery could revolutionise our understanding of the universe.
Ever since the beginning of the space age,
a number of scientists and engineers have
dreamed of someday making that journey
a reality. One of the most outspoken of these is Dr. Robert Zubrin, a maverick aerospace engineer and author, known as the Christopher Columbus' of Mars.
For years, Zubrin has been designing and promoting a humans-to-Mars expedition, not as a venture for the far future or one that will cost us impossible billions, but as a goal that could be attained within ten years. He sees continuing expeditions to Mars eventually leading to colonisation and a second home for humanity through a process known as 'terraforming' – turning Mars into a viable blue planet.
Shot in High Definition, THE MARS UNDERGROUND is a landmark documentary that brings to life Zubrin's vision through state-of-theart 3D animation, and gives us glimpses into the future of man's habitation on Mars.
It could really happen in our lifetime. Would you be ready?
