If you dream of the final frontier and of exploring Mars, then the Design Museum of London might have the perfect opportunity for you to spend a night on the Red Planet (sort of).
The London Design Museum is currently hosting its Moving to Mars exhibition, which features all the technological innovations that will be needed for humans reach our closest space neighbour and the information we know so far about it. And within this exhibition, there’s also the possibility of winning “one Martian night at the museum.”
One lucky winner and their guest will spend the night inside the exhibition, sleeping in a 3D printed Martian habitat and using specially-designed Martian gear like clothes and tools. It’s a chance to experience Mars without the eight-month-long journey, the cosmic radiations and the minor detail of the unbreathable air.
The winners will also get a VIP tour of the exhibition and a chance to explore all of its interactive installations, as well as a luxurious space-themed dinner and breakfast. All you need to do to enter is decide what would your first words be if you were the first human being to set foot on Mars to be included in the draw – the winner will be selected randomly on 20 December, while the Mars sleepover will happen on 17 January 2020.
