We’re a decade or less away from an official manned mission to Mars, and what better way for adventurists to prepare than right here on Earth? Now you can do just that, thanks to the Astroland Agency, which starts you off with virtual training courses as well as climbing / speleology classes. Once all of that is complete, a team of 10 Astrolanders get fitted with custom astronaut suits and head to the Ares Station, mock colony in a Spanish cave.
This mission will aim to replicate the harsh conditions and extreme isolation that will be common on the Red Planet, thus allowing for research and experimentation of current technologies useful for future human colonies. Astrolanders will also spend their farming, cooking, and most importantly, exercising, to keep their bodies in tip top shape.
