about made of mars

The Journey to Mars is now in your hands!


Made of Mars is the first company to let you drive the development of the technology we need to get to Mars. 


Made of Mars is dedicated to developing the technology we need to survive and thrive on Earth and beyond, using the materials found naturally in Space. These materials will be our passports towards the future and we can begin that journey today. We will learn to explore, process, design and transform these materials into the products we need and want to use today.


This challenge will need your help. You will drive the design, the demand, and the desire to build toward Mars. Working together, the Journey to Mars is in your hands.

Why Mars?


One of every 500 subscribers will win a change to build with the Women of NASA lego set. 

Mars will be the first step on the journey beyond our Earth-centric system. We already know the materials of Mars. Volcanic Basalt, Clay, Gypsum, and Iron are found across that planet. Basalt, in particular, will be key. It is common on Mars, the Moon, and many asteroids throughout space. It is also common throughout Earth, giving us the opportunity to get good at building with it. These skills will be critical to building a better future here on Earth and vital to building on any world we can envision or even in the depths of space itself.


Put the Material of Mars in Your Hands

Made of Mars will be launching its initial product line on Kickstarter in October. Join our mailing list to stay up to date on the launch details and to join our Journey to Mars!

Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist

For more information and stills gallery, please turn to: For youtube version, please turn here: ----- UPDATE: For anyone interested I have made a clip with a few discarded scenes from this film, which can be seen here: ----- Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available. Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there. As some may notice I have borrowed ideas and concepts from science fiction authors such as Kim Stanley Robinson and Arthur C. Clarke, just to name a few. And visually, I of course owe many tips of my hat to painter Chesley Bonestell - the legendary master of space art. More directly, with kind permission from Ann Druyan I have also borrowed the voice of astronomer and author Carl Sagan to narrate the film. The audio I used are excerpts from his own reading of his book 'Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space' (1994, Random House, - needless to say, a huge inspiration for this film. ----- CREDITS: VISUALS BY - Erik Wernquist - MUSIC BY - Cristian Sandquist - WRITTEN AND NARRATED BY - Carl Sagan - from his book 'Pale Blue Dot', courtesy of Ann Druyan, copyright by Democritus Properties, LLC, with all rights reserved COLOR GRADE BY - Caj Müller/Beckholmen Film - LIVE ACTION PHOTOGRAPHY BY - Mikael Hall/Vidiotism - LIVE ACTION PERFORMANCE BY - Anna Nerman, Camilla Hammarström, Hanna Mellin VOCALIST - Nina Fylkegård - THANK YOU - Johan Persson, Calle Herdenberg, Micke Lindgren, Satrio J.
