MARS CLOSER

16 Minutes / Documentary

 

„We have made our peace with the fact that we are not coming back. We are the first ever people on another planet. We are now interplanetary.“
In 2024 a private organization plans to send a group of four people to Mars. Paul Leeming and Pauls Irbins are both shortlisted candidates for the planet’s first human settlement.
The mission is going to be a one-way trip.
