Mars … For centuries it’s been an object of human fascination. Once mysterious, soon this red world may become our new home. This became possible due to daring individuals like Johannes Kepler: fascinated with the world, striving toward discovery and embracing challenges it may bring. It is our duty to continue their work and explore, dream and discover. Take an adventurous journey with humankind, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern space exploration. Experience the fascinating history of astronomy, geocentric and heliocentric models, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, and discover the principals of orbital maneuvers that enable satellites and space travel.
