Experience life on Mars in Singapore this weekend (12-13 Nov)

Want to know more about life on Mars? Catch Experience Mars at Palawan Beach, Sentosa from 12-13 November.

Ever wondered about the possibility of life on other planets? Well, National Geographic's new TV series, MARS, lets you explore this futuristic possibility, by showcasing mankind's thrilling, albeit fictional, quest to colonise Mars.

In conjunction with the show's premiere this Sunday, the Experience Mars event is being held from 12-13 November at Palawan Beach, Sentosa. We got a sneak preview of what's in store.

Water and housing on Mars

One of the main highlights was the display of Singapore University of Technology and Design’s (SUTD) very own Mars Aqua Retrieval System - a prototype of a specialised Martian rover, designed to mine for water on the red planet.

We also got to see what prospective housing on Mars would look like.

Want to know how people in Mars would grow their greens? This is the place for you. As an added perk, SingTel subscribers just need to show their SingTel TV bill and get their very own customised pot of herbs to take home!

The Anti Gravity walk


Defy gravity with the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, the world’s first and only treadmill using NASA based anti-gravity technology. My daughter tried it out and she was almost floating!

Guests can also enjoy the interactive Mars game experience using Samsung Gear VR.

Don't forget your ID cards and magazine covers

Lastly, you can make your own Mars Photo ID cards and National Geographic Magazine cover keepsakes, which the kids would love as souvenirs.
