Now that breakthrough technology has turned science fiction into reality, join the first public expedition to Mars in search of water and life.
Earthwatch is thrilled to announce our most exciting research endeavor yet: a voyage to a truly unexplored frontier (we’re not counting robots like the Mars Rover as explorers).
You'll spend your days hiking through meteor craters and Earth-gazing, all while looking for signs of water and life. Sure, the environment is harsh—an average temperature of about -50 degrees Fahrenheit, winds occasionally getting up to 500 miles per hour, and the whole lack of oxygen thing—but it’s also one of the most exciting spots for science ever.
Join intergalactically experienced researcher Dr. Marvin Martin as he scours this mysterious planet for evidence of water. You'll measure environmental conditions and collect any evidence of native microorganisms that you stumble across as you’re trying to walk in giant space boots over some of the bumpiest terrain in the galaxy.
You'll depart from Cape Canaveral in Florida on the most exciting journey of your life.
