“If you had a chance to be on the crew that leads humankind’s journey to Mars, what role would you play? There are opportunities for more than just pilots, engineers, doctors, botanists – Life on Mars will be about the entire human experience…it’ll be communities of everyday people that will be putting a human
footprint in the soil of the Red Planet…” said Brian Tanner, President of Spaceport Exploration Centre.
