Application Deadline: Friday, August 31, 2018 11:59 PM (23:59 GMT -4

In collaboration with NASA, SciArt Exchange presents Project Mars Competition: your chance to tell the story of human exploration of deep space.

NASA’s exploration missions will help build a flexible, reusable and sustainable infrastructure that will last multiple decades and support missions of increasing complexity to enable missions to Mars. Orion is NASA’s new spacecraft that will take astronauts to the Moon and beyond to make new discoveries about our solar system and unlock the mysteries of our own planet Earth.

Orion will launch from a modernized Kennedy Space Center in Florida on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System, the most powerful rocket in the world, capable of launching and carrying habitation, propulsion and logistics modules for a proposed deep space gateway, as well as landers, rovers and other surface systems that will be needed for a Martian voyage.
