Exploration is not just part of our history; exploration is a part of our psyche.
- Jason de Silva

We are going to need an explorer's mindset if we are going to be succesful as a species. When you want to conquer, it is to have more; when you want to explore, it is to know more. Steering us in adventures to new places; these journeys of curiosity, bravery and instict towards discovery lead us to uncover more truths about ourselves and the new world.


We are paralysed by common assumptions.

Analogue of Space 4.0.

We exemplify the next generation of space colonists: we are curious, brave, capable trans-disciplinary, hackers, artists, global explorers and imagineers. We love the idea of reconceptualising, customising, and designing resources that amplify human resourcefulness. We thrive on improvising to solve problems, and adapt systems, by experimenting and collaborating, to create a home and mode for learning. The Lunares MoonMars Habitat Station critical lens on engagement of the science-art spectra, and the characteristic element of restraint and surprise, is a great fit for us. We support the vision for global cooperation and Space 4.0.

14 days total isolation

Confinement and independence within a space analogue ensures crew habitability and discovery supports the potential impact and significance for human spaceflight.

8 confined space modules

An award-winning designed environment where international cooperation, commercialisation of space, experimental research, art and culture can thrive.


1 global mission vision

Conceptual and technical realisation of the mission simulation depends on coming together with a view to sharing interests and capabilities.
