About Habitat Marte

The space analog station Habitat Marte is one of the most innovative projects in stimulating the development of skills in the aerospace area in Southern Hemisphere. We hope that from the simulation experience your participants will be interested in academic and professional careers related to the space area.

We are interested in creating a new generation of people interested in science and technology, seeing knowledge as a tool to collaborate for sustainable development. We believe that the experience at Habitat Marte is motivating for its participants to empower themselves and expand their vision, based on a spatial experience, which can change the world, collaborating for a more prosperous world.

Our missions

  • Virtual Missions
  • Responsibilities
  • Offline Activities
The COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult to develop presential missions on Habitat Marte, considering one infected participant transmit to another one.
In this scenario, a proposed innovation for the continuity of Habitat Marte were virtual missions. In virtual missions, participants are invited to participate in remote activities related to the Habitat Marte protocols and research themes that associate space and sustainability, observing how Habitat Marte can contribute to solutions to space exploration.
In Habitat Marte missions, all participants are considered crew members and are responsible for one module in the habitat. Based on this considerations, each astronaut have to fill and send daily reports on weather conditions, activities performed and some psychological information, besides their duties in each module. It is a great opportunity to network, challenge yourself, develop some interesting research opportunities, learn about different areas and procedures, and, most of all, have fun!

The general routines of virtual missions are:
1 - Be present during the video meetings;
2 – Answer the initial and final surveys;
3 – Prepare the presentation about one of the facilities of Mars habitat;
4 – Inform weather daily data from your city;
5 – Prepare the daily personal report;
6 - Register developed off-line and on-line activities;
7 - Identify opportunities to improve the methodology of virtual missions;
8 - Think creatively about how the mission themes can become research themes;
9 - Make posts with the hashtag #HabitatMarte informing that you are participating in the mission # no @HabitatMarte. Always check @HabitatMarte on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Instagram.
10 – Participate in the virtual mission Habitat Marte Whatsapp group.

1 - Collection of soil and mineral samples
2 - Astronomical observation
3 - Evaluation and improvement of life support systems at Habitat Marte
4 - Test, improvement and evaluation of space suits and the Autonomous Sustainable Cooling Module
5 - Performance of Extra-vehicular Activities (EVA)
6 - Operationalization of intravehicular activities (IVA), actions carried out inside the station
7 - Evaluation of behavioral aspects of the mission members
8 - Reporting
9 - Mapping of operational processes
10 - Development of articles communicating the results generated in the missions;
11 - Maintenance of the greenhouse and the aquaponics system.


De dezembro de 2017 a 2023, foram desenvolvidas mais de 110 missões com mais de 600 participantes. Essas atividades geraram um grande volume de dados, o que nos permitiu fornecer uma variedade de estudos e publicações.



As missões analógicas cobrem toda a gama de indústrias verticais.

Cada missão virtual é temática. Por exemplo, projetar e operacionalizar a sustentabilidade e autossuficiência .


our research in Brazil, the challenge of Habitat Marte is be a self-sustaining habitat

Somos o único habitat análogo de Marte em operação no hemisfério sul .
concept would be applied to space habitats and to Earth remote /arid areas, as affected by heatwaves, climate change and droughts, as Chile deserts.
