BE A MARTIAN! Living and Working on Mars!

BE A MARTIAN!

Mars needs YOU! In the future, Mars will need all kinds of explorers, farmers, surveyors, teachers . . . but most of all YOU! Join us on the Journey to Mars as we explore with robots and send humans there one day. 

EXPLORERS WANTED ON THE JOURNEY TO MARS

Hike the solar system’s largest canyon, Valles Marineris on Mars, where you can catch blue sunsets in the twilight, and see the two moons of Mars (Phobos and Deimos) in the night sky.
 

WORK THE NIGHT SHIFT ON MARTIAN MOON PHOBOS

Night owls welcome! If you lived on Mars’ moon Phobos, you’d have an office with a view, mining for resources with Mars in the night sky. Settlers below on Mars would see Phobos rise and set not once, but twice in one day!
 

FARMERS WANTED FOR SURVIVAL ON MARS

Got a green thumb? This one’s for you! In space, you can grow tomatoes, lettuce, peas, and radishes just like you would find in your summer garden. New ways of growing fresh food will be needed to keep brave explorers alive.

SURVEYORS WANTED TO EXPLORE MARS AND ITS MOONS

Have you ever asked the question, what is out there? So have we! That curiosity leads us to explore new places like Mars and its moons, Phobos and Deimos. Just what lies beyond the next valley, canyon, crater, or hill is something we want to discover with rovers and with humans one day too.
 

TEACH ON MARS AND ITS MOONS

Learning is out of this world! Learning can take you places you’ve never dreamed of, including Mars and its two moons, Phobos and Deimos. No matter where we live, we can always learn something new, especially with teacher-heroes who guide us on our path, daring us to dream and grow! 
 

TECHNICIANS WANTED TO ENGINEER OUR FUTURE ON MARS

People with special talents will always be in demand for our Journey To Mars. Whether repairing an antenna in the extreme environment of Mars, or setting up an outpost on the moon Phobos, having the skills and desire to dare mighty things is all you need. 
 

ASSEMBLY REQUIRED TO BUILD OUR FUTURE ON MARS AND ITS MOONS

Are you someone who can put things together, solving challenges to ensure survival? Dare to forge our future with space-age tools – build spaceships to carry us to Mars and back, and habitats to protect us while we’re there. 
 
 

WE NEED YOU

We need many things for our Journey To Mars, but one key piece is YOU!

Planets Beyound Our Solar System

Planet hop from TRAPPIST-1e

.
Some 40 light-years from
Earth, a planet called TRAPPIST-1e offers a heart-stopping view: brilliant
objects in a red sky, looming like larger and smaller versions of our own moon.
But these are no moons. They are other Earth-sized planets in a spectacular
planetary system outside our own. These seven rocky worlds huddle around their
small, dim, red star, like a family around a campfire. Any of them could harbor
liquid water, but the planet shown here, fourth from the TRAPPIST-1 star, is in
the habitable zone, the area around the star where liquid water is most likely
to be detected. This system was revealed by the TRAnsiting Planets and
PlanetIsmals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) and NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. The
planets are also excellent targets for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Take
a planet-hopping excursion through the TRAPPIST-1 system.
 
Greetings from your First
Exoplanet
 
 
While there is much debate
over which exoplanet discovery is considered the “first,” one stands
out from the rest. In 1995, scientists discovered 51 Pegasi b, forever changing
the way we see the universe and our place in it. The exoplanet is about half
the mass of Jupiter, with a seemingly impossible, star-hugging orbit of only
4.2 Earth days. Not only was it the first planet confirmed to orbit a sun-like
star, it also ushered in a whole new class of planets called Hot Jupiters: hot,
massive planets orbiting closer to their stars than Mercury. Today, powerful
observatories like NASA’s Kepler space telescope will continue the hunt of
distant planets.
 
Where your shadow always has
company
 
.
Like Luke Skywalker’s planet
“Tatooine” in Star Wars, Kepler-16b orbits a pair of stars. Depicted
here as a terrestrial planet, Kepler-16b might also be a gas giant like Saturn.
Prospects for life on this unusual world aren’t good, as it has a temperature
similar to that of dry ice. But the discovery indicates that the movie’s iconic
double-sunset is anything but science fiction.
 
Where the Nightlife Never
Ends
 
 
Discovered in October 2013
using direct imaging, PSO J318.5-22 belongs to a special class of planets
called rogue, or free-floating, planets. Wandering alone in the galaxy, they do
not orbit a parent star. Not much is known about how these planets come to
exist, but scientists theorize that they may be either failed stars or planets
ejected from very young systems after an encounter with another planet. These
rogue planets glow faintly from the heat of their formation. Once they cool
down, they will be dancing in the dark.
 
Experience the Gravity of a
Super Earth
 
.
Twice as big in volume as the
Earth, HD 40307g straddles the line between “Super-Earth” and
“mini-Neptune” and scientists aren’t sure if it has a rocky surface
or one that’s buried beneath thick layers of gas and ice. One thing is certain
though: at eight time the Earth’s mass, its gravitational pull is much, much
stronger.
 
Where the Grass is Always
Redder
 
.
Kepler-186f is the first
Earth-size planet discovered in the potentially ‘habitable zone’ around another
star, where liquid water could exist on the planet’s surface. Its star is much
cooler and redder than our Sun. If plant life does exist on a planet like
Kepler-186f, its photosynthesis could have been influenced by the star’s
red-wavelength photons, making for a color palette that’s very different than
the greens on Earth. This discovery was made by Kepler, NASA’s planet hunting
telescope.
