Pathways to a long-term sustainable exploration

Mankind's dream of flying to Mars is about to come true: various countries are working at full speed on the technical implementation and are undercutting each other with targeted launch dates. But to be successful on Mars, humans must manage to live there largely independently of Earth. In the "Humans on Mars" initiative, a total of 60 researchers from the University of Bremen and other research institutes in Bremen are looking into the question of what sustainable human exploration of Mars might look like: What are the challenges on the ground and what do they do to us humans? Conversely, how are humans impacting their new environment? And can we learn from Mars for Earth? 

Four scientists from the initiative took part in Campus City  on October 15: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kurosch Rezwan, Prof. Dr. Sebastian Fehrler, Tanja Link and Dr. Paul Zabel presented their research to the audience at the Metropol Theater Bremen. Short keynote speeches provided food for thought on what sustainable life on Mars might look like. Afterwards, the guests had a drink and exchanged ideas with the scientists and were allowed to ask the last questions on the topic of Mars exploration.

We thank our guests for their interest and the valuable exchange!
