sir trevor mcdonald mars interview

Sir Trevor McDonald speaks to four brave astronauts about to make history on the first manned mission to Mars (Well almost.)


Sir Trevor McDonald has recorded a world-exclusive interview with the Daedalus crew, days before they attempt to make history and become the first astronauts to land on Mars.  One of the most exciting and important exploration events of all time, this ground-breaking mission is the result of years of expert research, billions of dollars of investment and will shape the future of mankind. The brave and intrepid crew making the mission to Mars are true heroes – this is a one-way ticket, as they attempt to establish the first human settlement on the Red Planet.

What will be their biggest challenge? What will they miss most about Earth?  What are they most excited about?  Sir Trevor McDonald gets deep inside the minds of these courageous pioneers, with this poignant and probing interview, getting answers to the questions we all want to ask. Here's a sneak peak of the interview:

The full interview will be available to watch on Monday 7th November at www.makemarshome.co.uk.

Sir Trevor McDonald commented: ‘I am truly honoured and privileged to have the world-exclusive interview with the Daedalus crew – this trailblazing space odyssey is one of the most important of our time, mankind’s entire future is at stake and we will be talking about this epic journey for years to come.”

The landing and subsequent colonisation of Mars will be documented in depth by National Geographic.
Upon successful landing, the crew will immediately begin to secure a limited base camp and are tasked with the identification of a subterranean space with access to ice and appropriate geological requirements that are needed to support a long-term habitation site. 

Once the first human settlement is established, the crew must sustain itself until future landings in 2035 and 2037 expand the settlement with deliveries of both cargo and additional human occupants. The carefully selected international crew of six are uniquely suited to take on this monumental step for humans, and are supported by the best team on the ground.

The Daedalus crew members interviewed by Sir Trevor are:

Ben Sawyer– American – mission commander and systems engineer, space architect. The MIT graduate was very close to his father, whose fascination with space was an inspiration for Ben. Ben is a highly trained and experienced astronaut who has flown for both NASA and private space companies in numerous capacities. 

Hana Seung  – American – mission pilot and software engineer. Hana is a NASA-trained pilot. Hana and her twin sister, Joon, have dreamed of traveling into space since childhood, and Hana’s position as second in command on the mission to Mars is the result of a focused career.

Robert Foucault– Nigerian – mechanical engineer and roboticist. Robert showed exceptional intelligence from a young age, and excelled academically at a series of top-level institutions, eventually receiving a Ph.D. in robotics from Stanford.

Marta Kamen – Russian – exobiologist and geologist. As a young woman, Marta witnessed the Chelyabinsk meteor fall in February 2013, which inspired her interest in meteorites. Marta is responsible for geological exploration and the search for signs of life on Mars.

MARS will premiere on 13th November 2016 at 9pm on National Geographic.
