Exploration of Mars

UK Space AgencyOverview

We have produced a range of free materials as part of the ‘Full STEAM Ahead’ in partnership with the UK Space Agency Aurora programme for the robotic exploration of Mars.

The European Space Agency and UK Space Agency plan on developing the technologies needed to search for life on other planets and eventually send humans to explore deep space.  To begin with robots will be used and developed to explore planets. These modules will focus on providing missions to Mars, the search for life and the development of human colonies on Mars.

About the UK Space Agency Education Grant
