Support the Mars Society

As NASA and other organizations are gearing up for new human exploration missions, the Mars Society is perfectly positioned to play a major role in training the current and next generation of space exploration professionals at our unique Mars simulation research stations in Utah and Canada. 

Your generous donations will ensure that these field stations continue to serve as venues for crucial hands-on experiences that will prepare scientists from a variety of disciplines for responsibilities in mission architecture and planning, crew selection, human factors, remote management and human-robotic interface. 

There are many ways you can support the Mars Society and its mission to promote the human exploration of the Red Planet. Whether you decide to make a direct contribution, become a member, renew your membership or include the organization in your estate planning, your generous assistance will yield tangible results and help ensure humanity’s exploration and settlement of Mars.
