The Apollo missions blazed a path to deep space, and today NASA is working on the next giant leap u2013 our path to Mars. Technology drives exploration, and we're building on the Apollo program's accomplishments to test and fly transformative, cutting edge technologies today for tomorrow's missions. But unlike the Apollo missions, where the public could only watch, we want you to get involved and be a part of the journey.
On Mars, we'll use 3D printers & laser cutters to make furnishings & greenhouses from thin air, and not return to Earth. The Mars Foundation, HI-SEAS & Aleph Objects are testing this at a Mars base in Hawaii. Join us.
The Automated Adaptive Directed Evolution Chamber is a machine that evolves microorganisms based on a set of user defined criteria. Eventually we hope that we can make an organism tough enough to survive on Mars.
