Video record of session 3 of the Cycle Mars 2030 (in Portuguese)
Is Mars capable of sustaining human life? As soon as a crew lands on the surface of Mars, its resistance will be tested under the harsh conditions of the red planet. Growing food, keeping mental and physical health and even breathing, are tasks complicated by the cold environment, thin air and lack of liquid water.
