Crash Landing on Mars

Today on Far Future Horizons we explore the scenario of what might happen if the first manned mission to Mars crashes hundreds of miles from the rocket that would take them back home?

This installment of the History Channel’s acclaimed documentary series The Universe explorers this dire possibility.

Could they survive the crash, and travel across the brutal Martian surface to their home ship? We’ll show what the astronauts would have to do to survive dust storms and space radiation, while extracting vital resources like water from the Martian soil itself. It’s a dramatic vision of the very near future, where survival can depend on pre-industrial technology and human ingenuity.

The Universe is available on DVD from and the History Channel’s online store.
