Mongolian chapter delegation to attend Mars Society Convention

The Mars Society is pleased to announce that a delegation from the MARS-V Project, the official Mongolian chapter of the Mars Society, will attend and present at the 26th Annual International Mars Society Convention 5-8 October at Arizona State University (Tempe).

Senior members of the visiting MARS-V group will give presentations during the convention about planning for the Gobi Desert-based Mars analog station, discussing the most recent technical developments and module program developments for MARS-V.

Partially due to the growing partnership between Mongolia’s MARS-V Project and the Mars Society, plans to build an analog facility in this northern Asian country are moving forward at a rapid pace. MARSA (Mongolian Aerospace Research and Science Association), the operator of the project, intends to construct the Mars analog simulation station in Dundgovi (Middle Gobi) and Umnugobi (South Gobi). Mars habitation, robotic rovers, and analog spacesuits are also being developed at the conceptual level, alongside a 14-day module program created through comprehensive interdisciplinary research.

Since its establishment in 2019, the MARS-V Project has garnered considerable international attention and recognition. Most notably, it has been officially introduced to many of the major space agencies, including JAXA, IRSO, NASA, and ESA. The MARS-V Project involves around 6,000 supporters and over 120 specialized members representing diverse careers.

United by a shared vision of establishing a thriving space economy and sector in Mongolia, this dedicated team is driving the project forward with unwavering determination. More recently, the Mongolian prime minister met in the U.S. with Vice President Kamala Harris and NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy to talk about advancing space and Mars missions through collaborative research and development.
