At this time, the exploration and establishment of camps in Mars had had a lot of obstacles because of the inclemence at Martian's surface. With the investigations of scientist of today, we learn that Martian Lava Tubes have some of the needed characteristics to establish some colonies or camps there. So, we created a simulation game based on real map surfaces and internal images and real risks and mini challenges from those caverns taken by curiosity and some other robots, to train astronauts.

This project is solving the Survivor: Mars Lava Tubes challenge.


The simulation game aims to transform into an extensible, powerful simulation system of the Martian environment, weather, and to give the possibility to astronauts and investigators to plan strategies and to have a more clear paradigm of what they will see there. It wants to achieve an auto-updateable software system solution that can get new information from NASA databases and to change itself with an intelligent software design.

So, the main and most important aspect that we want to take into account is the veracity of real data, because it wants to be a simulation system in a near future.

Now, in the present state of the development of this app, the main objective had been to survive in Mars, and to create an self-sustaining colony that can receive shipping from the Earth.
