The Frontier

The Frontier: If you can Make it Mars, you can Make it anywhere

Leaving the Earth's atmosphere, traversing over 35 million miles, and descending onto the Martian landscape are all tremendous challenges...But just getting there is only the beginning. The very same challenges we face on Earth - social, environmental, political to name a few - will need to be addressed for colonization to be successful.

The Frontier, a collaboration between openNASA, [ freespace ], EkoVillages and ReAllocate, aims to inspire participation and engagement in these themes, and prototype solutions to those problems mirrored here on Earth. From speaking with Astronauts, to painting, modelling and printing your view of a Martian Colony, there will be something to Inspire everyone!

Come help Make the Frontier!
