Imagine living on the red planet. Think of all those dimensions which the new civilisation would need to recreate.

We would need a new kind of foods to grow, new ways to cook them, combat new diseases and completely re-do the medical systems which we follow on Earth.

Mars is a planet with the rapid changes of temperature, hence, a new way of fashion designing would have to evolve. A fresh approach to architecture in civil engineering has to be followed because much of a living what the underground. The abundant water on Earth would be a scarcity on the Red Planet, perhaps the most coveted resource. On Mars, we will need a new legal system a new political order to ensure peace and harmony as humans would not evolved from scratch but be catapulted with the most formidable technology already in their hands. This dawn of the new human civilisation does not does not begin with sticks and pebbles but with nuclear power and the most sophisticated robotics and computing technologies. Mars will have no rival species for us, only ourselves and everything which we bring along with us would be our potential competition.

We welcome you to join the mission to not only imagine and create the future of the Red Planet. It is your chance to grab a slice in the history where a new human civilisation will be created all over again. No matter if you are not a technological person, as civilisations require not only science, but also, literature, law and humanities.

Selected participants from India will participate in the MINAR (Mine Analogue Research) project.

The last date of applying for MINAR 2018 (in the United Kingdom) is August 12, 2018; 5:00 PM UTC.
