From the beginning of times we have showed our eagerness towards progress. “Mutable man may be able to make them (challenges of life within the boundaries of death) – our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” – Kubrick said.

The very meaninglessness of life forces a man to create his own meaning. We could understand the history of mankind through this eagerness, from the cave man – to the industrial revolution.

Elon Musk says that there are two fundamental paths to our future, one path is we stay on Earth forever with an eventual extinction event. The other is to become a multiplanetary species, which should be our generation’s milestone.

The first step should be Mars, which is better suited to scale up to host a multiplanetary civilization that any other planet from our solar system. Our mission is to create a habitat that would host the first city on Mars. Our proposal is the axis between the first flights and the terraforming of the planet. A building that would serve as an entrance to Mars.
