The National Geographic Mars show home will be open from 10-16 November and will provide a glimpse of what life on the red planet could be like in a matter of decades. 

It is based on extensive consultation with Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomers and Stephen Petranek, author of How We’ll Live on Mars and consultant on Mars, the six-part docu-drama from the Academy Award-winning team of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, which premieres on 13 November on National Geographic.

The drama is set in the year 2033 and Mars tells the story of the first manned mission to the red planet and human attempts to colonise it.

The show home depicts a dome-like structure mined from the regolith (Martian soil), combined with recycled spacecraft parts, including a double air-locked entrance.

A small exhibition around the home will bring to life visions of the colony and facts about our future on Mars and the very real prospect of becoming a multi-planetary species.

Last year, National Geographic trailed a dead T-Rex around London to highlight its programme T. Rex Autopsy.

Today, The Economist announced that it will host live student debates on the future of work aimed at helping students to make career decisions.
