Moving to Mars




Exhibitions London, UK October 16, 2019 - March 1, 2020

The red planet holds the potential of human settlement and the promise of life after Earth – which makes it a new frontier not just for science but for design. From the spaceships to be used for the eight-month journey to the habitats that people will live in and even the make-up of a new society, every detail in this collective endeavour must be designed. This Design Museum exhibition will explore three phases of life on Mars: Arrive, Survive and Thrive. Illustrated with a combination of factual science and design fiction, the show will feature an immersive experience that gives visitors a sense of the surface of Mars. Alongside actual hardware and equipment, several new commissions and collaborations by contemporary designers will respond to known challenges and potential scenarios for a human settlement there.
