Everyone from astronomers to tech companies wants to know what it would be like to live on Mars.

From growing vegetables in Martian soil, to claims that leaving Earth could save the human species, scientists are constantly making advances in this field.

Now, astronomers from the Royal Observatory in London and Stephen Petranek — author of “How We’ll Live on Mars” — have designed a Martian Show Home to demonstrate what life could be like on the Red Planet.

The exhibit, which launched on Thursday 10 November and will run until Wednesday 16 November, marks the launch of “MARS” — a mini-series on National Geographic showing how humans could survive on the planet.
