In August, 2003, Mars and Earth were only 55.5 million miles away from each other - as close as they will be for another few centuries.
Congratulations! You have been selected to be part of an elite team travelling to Mars. Your team will conduct a series of scientific experiments and construct a settlement capable of supporting life. This mission will take you deep into the world of Space travel.
Find out if you have what it takes to live and work in space!
