MARS SOCIETY KENYA is a non-profit organization aimed at informing the general public of the importance of taking care of the environment (in this case – Mars) and with a dream of one day being part of solving problems for humankind on Mars as we endeavor to terraform the ‘Red Planet’.

In order to do this, MARS SOCIETY KENYA has decided to establish a Mars Habitat Simulation Programme / Research Station to be set up in the country. The region is suitable for an MDRS, which will enable both the citizens and any other willing party to practice and experiment on a Martian-like environment, even as we purpose to eventually have a human presence on Mars. The country is slowly rising from the dust in terms of its involvement in the Space industry and having such a goal first and then working backwards through the measures we as a country need to take in order to achieve this goal is surely the best way to go as we advance our presence in the Space above and beyond.

We have decided to form a University Chapter. In this perspective, we have partnered with the Technical University of Kenya (TUK). The main focus for the institution will be to recruit new members and facilitate in the promotion of STEM and its benefits to the Space industry. The institution will also help in marketing the MDRS and seek individuals interested in carrying out activities in the station.

heading=”WHAT WE DO”]

Our hope and desire is to partner with various Space Actors in reviving the space industry in Kenya.
Founded on the UN SDG No. 17 (Partnership for Profit/Goals), we are a Youthful community of space enthusiasts focused on the space sector through forming partnerships to either deliver individual or community projects.
Through our Mars Kenya Analogs, we hope to bring the space family together.
Since Mars Society Kenya is the National University Chapter, we hope to have the registered groups at our various universities and other institutions of learning. These groups will be assured of support in their projects as they will as well be used to run the main projects under this partnership project.
