A compelling ride-show will transport our guests to Mars, where they will land at the first Mars settlement. EXPLORERS see the Martian surface and peek into the settlement as SETTLERS role play as real Mars settlers living in this new frontier. Fully immersed in the largest indoor simulated Mars environment in the world, guests will test their skills as they overcome exciting challenges.
Earth to Mars Ride / Show
A simulated journey to Mars, through a combination of a high definition screen, motion platform and other show elements. NewSpace Center, LLC will seek a major aerospace or space tourism firm to sponsor this element.
Robots (Surface & Aerial)
SETTLERS will use both surface robots and aerial vehicles to collect data and perform tasks in the simulated Mars environment. One or more partners could provide these vehicles, receiving direct performance feedback and exposure.
Telerobotic User Interfaces
As SETTLERS control robots from within the settlement, they will depend upon innovative user interfaces utilizing touch screens, haptic feedback, augmented reality and other sensory inputs. NewSpace Center, LLC will engage partner companies that can showcase and obtain performance feedback on new control technologies.
Space Suits & EVA Suit Room
SETTLERS will depend upon a well constructed analog Mars space suit as they explore the simulated Mars terrain. NewSpace Center, LLC intends to make the suit a fertile canvas for sponsor brands and logos. The suit-room and airlock are also an opportunity for sponsorship.
Various Mars SETTLER roles will involve the use of small-scale mining and construction equipment. Front end loaders, collapsible cranes, cargo handlers, trommels, small drilling rigs and similar equipment could be provided by appropriate partners.
Biotechnology / Alternative Energy Equipment
To become more self-sufficient, a Mars settlement will likely explore solar energy, power beaming, and bio-fuel production. These innovative technologies here on Earth can be provided by partners who specialize in their development.
The greenhouse and its associated technologies are part of the compelling story of life on Mars. INTERSPACE SETTLERS will work hand-in-hand with researchers to perform experiments and test partner technology.
INTERSPACE SETTLERS and their guides will perform material science and processing tasks in the chemistry lab. The lab itself and its associated equipment could be provided by one or more partners.
Dining & Entertainment Area
Even people on Mars need a place to eat, relax and socialize. The naming rights for this area are available and would provide exposure to all INTERSPACE SETTLERS.
Kitchen: Mars Cuisine
Working with a world class chef, selected INTERSPACE SETTLERS would prepare unique Mars cuisine. Partners could outfit the kitchen with appliances, equipment and food supplies.
Media Editing Room
Reporters, photographers, and videographers will capture the essence of the Mars experience. Some INTERSPACE SETTLERS will use sophisticated tools, potentially provided by partners, in playing this role.
The extension of civilization to a second planet will be one of the most profound and inspirational events in human history. The INTERSPACE SETTLER experience will inspire the creative mind and this space will allow expression of this creativity. Partners could include art supply companies and art schools.
Multiple private firms and universities are developing real space habitat technologies. Expo Mars could be an ideal showcase for their work, and NewSpace Center, LLC will seek partnerships with these entities to bring their innovations to INTERSPACE.
