Free 100 gram sample of MMS-1 Mojave Mars Simulant to anyone who wants to try their hand at Mars Gardening. MMS-1 is made from whole rocks and boulders of Saddleback Basalt, an iron-rich igneous rock. These are crushed to a mixture of grades that range from gravel to fine dust. Mixed material is then sift-separated into three different size grades, bake-sterilized, packaged and vacuum-sealed. See if you are ready to colonize the red planet and grow your own food.
Simulants, kits, and projects are designed from the ground up to help teachers promote STEM education in their classrooms, because a well-informed and enthusiastic public base of support is the most important element on the Journey to Mars.
