Antarctica ‘isolation’ project will ‘develop capabilities’ for humans to colonise Mars

  • February 26, 2021

From 1907 to 1909, Mr Shackleton, alongside three companions, completed the Nimrod expedition, establishing a new record for distance travelled from the South Pole.

And Dr Marais now wants to head to the icy continent too.

She added in 2020: “In May this year I left the corporate world to establish a movement called Proudly Human.

“Our first project, or expedition, is an over winter, off-world, settlement simulation experiment in Antarctica.

“This is my inspiration for what I can do towards generating not only the capability, but in terms of the research and the technology and the kind of teams that might be successful in Mars.

“The temperatures on the surface do have some parallels with Mars, very cold.
