The childhood dream of seven students from Subéro Toulouse, the school that trained Thomas Pesquet, was to go to Mars. They have a unique experience in the Utah desert. Cut off from the world, they simulated life on the Red Planet.
Closed for a month
Space is currently unavailable. We are on Earth, in the Utah desert in the United States. These engineers are working on simulations at the site of the Mars Society, a scientific organization that promotes exploration of the Red Planet. Here, everything is reconstructed as closely as possible to what a real Mars mission would look like.
They are seven, two girls and five boys, engineers, students or graduates of Supaéro in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne), to live here, closed for a month. It will take more time until the dream of stepping on the Red Planet comes true.
