Hypatia I is a female-led mission to the Mars Desert Research Station in April 2023. Our crew aims to advance Martian research, promote space exploration and enhance scientific vocations
Hypatia has two main objectives:
- Conduct high-quality space-related research in a Martian simulation environment on a variety of academic fields.
- Inspire the next generations, with an emphasis on young girls —and other underrepresented groups— interested in pursuing STEM-related careers.
Hypatia I is a multi-disciplinary, inter-generational and all-female crew from Catalonia, Spain, composed of seven primary and two back-up members. Each member has a unique personal story, a remarkable academic background, and a deep passion for space and the exploration of Mars.
In this analog facility, our crew will conduct research to study the feasibility of a mission to Mars.
