Planet Mars is Coming To Dubai With This €111 Million Project

The UAE is building a Mars Science City in the desert near Dubai, that is established for the sole purpose of acting as a prototype that allows visitors to get a taste of what life is going to be like on Mars.

Award-winning Danish Architect, Bjarke Ingles, said humans will, within a century, become the first species to inhabit another planet. The €111 million project includes agricultural tests, food security studies, and laboratories where food, water and energy can be produced.

Ingels said life on Mars may look like living underground, at least temporarily. Ahead of humans’ arrival, robots will be able to use 3D printing to build underground bases before the first astronauts arrive. These bases would have to be built underground because of Mars’ hostile atmosphere.

The Mars Science City is aligned with the UAE’s aim to lead the global race in taking people to Mars.

WE SAID THIS: Dubai won’t go to mars, mars is coming to Dubai.
