Of all the planets in our solar system, none has captured our collective imagination like Mars – a mysterious indelible part of the zeitgeist. The quest to send humans to Mars has engaged the top minds in science in a modern-day space race, and it has infiltrated pop culture through blockbusters like Andy Weir’s “The Martian” and through out of this world tweets from astronaut Scott Kelly.

Now, National Geographic Channel; Academy Award- and Emmy-winning producers Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Michael Rosenberg of Imagine Entertainment; and Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning producer Justin Wilkes, visionary Mexican filmmaker Everado Gout (“Days of Grace”), have joined forces to launch viewers farther into outer space than ever before with the global event series MARS.

The global event series tells the inspiring story from the vantage point of a fictitious crewed mission to Mars in 2033. The first of the epic six-part series premiered on 13 Nov 2016.

Don’t miss the remaining episodes on Sundays, 10pm on National Geographic (Singtel TV Ch201 and StarHub TV Ch411). If you happen to miss them on Sundays, you can still enjoy the re-runs of these episodes during the week!

Are you ready for an interplanetary journey across the cosmos?

It sounds like science fiction, but journalist Stephen Petranek considers it fact: within 20 years, humans will live on Mars. In this provocative talk, Petranek makes the case that humans will become a spacefaring species and describes in fascinating detail how we’ll make Mars our next home.

“Humans will survive no matter what happens on Earth,” Petranek says. “We will never be the last of our kind.”

I've been working for over 7 years at Science Centre Singapore... a place I've come to call "home" where science befriends and transforms me day by day! I love communications and this blog has given me a terrific opportunity to express myself in writing. I continually aspire to engage the community through my contributions. And would love to hear back from readers like you if you have something interesting to share (please leave a comment!). That would really encourage me! Am also looking forward to hitting the centennial mark with 100 posts. Am nearly 70% there. ;) I hope you have a great online experience on Stir-fried Science, enjoy all science has to offer, and be inspired to make or be the difference you wish to see in the communities you find yourself in.
