The year is 2033. Humanity’s first crewed mission to Mars is about to become reality. National Geographic’s award-winning docudrama was launched simultaneously around the world with supporting on-ground initiatives. In Hong Kong, the MARS exhibition enabled visitors to experience the epic journey to Mars and become the first humans to live on the Red Planet.
