OUR MISSION

Madame Mars is a transmedia production designed to prepare all of us for our futures in space, whether orbiting Earth, returning to the moon, or colonizing Mars – and worlds beyond.
Our film will tell the story of the challenges women have faced while trying to study and explore Mars, from early space age pioneers to those currently working to get humans to Mars. Our interactive media, games and apps are designed to educate, inspire and motivate young women to pursue careers as space scientists and space explorers.
Mars is our next step out into the universe, the next step in human evolution. Madame Mars hopes that once we arrive, the first footstep on Mars may just as easily be made by a woman as by a man.
