– The home of Mars explorers and expeditioners
Mars has incredible landscapes for the explorer. Future explorers will launch mountaineering, polar, caving, and desert expeditions across the surface of Mars and they will plan descents into some of the most expansive canyons in the Solar System. Mars has ice caps almost as large as Antarctica and its extinct volcanoes are higher than Mount Everest. Although the planet is smaller than the Earth, its total land area for exploration is equal to the area of the Earth’s continents combined, because it has no oceans. Mars is the only planet in our Solar System that has environments analogous to those on Earth that will one day be host to epic human expeditions.
The Association of Mars Explorers is an association for explorers of Mars or the Mars-analog environments on Earth. It has members from across the world, including the US, Australia, Europe, Asia and South America. In the Association they can share and discuss their experiences – scientific, logistic and human factors – with those who have similar experiences. The Association holds a dinner once every two years and holds other events.
