The program aims to support research related to astrobiology, help monitor climate change, inspire students to pursue STEAM education and spread awareness in India.


From July 2021, ESEP invites individuals to visit, stay and work at Mars-like environments in Ladakh, India one 1-week rotations (6 nights, 7 days), guided by experts. Help us collect scientific data, study terrain features and train to become a Mars explorer!
