The International Space University discloses the visual identity of MMARS1

The International Space University is proud to disclose, in avant-premiere to the ISU community, the visual identity of MMARS1.

rollup MMARS1 v3Alec Bartos, an MSS16 participant, philatelist and professional designer took on the challenge, by encompassing also all stakeholders, to design the logo, patch and poster representing ISU’s latest Space Research Program MMARS1 - Microbial Methane Associated Research from Strasbourg -  which will be delivered to the International Space Station (ISS) by the Space X Dragon 10 capsule before the end of 2016.

Designed and prepared by the International Space University (ISU) and the Microbiology Laboratory of UNISTRA, an associated Lab from CNRS, with the support of AIRBUS Space and Defence and Space Tango, an American operator from Houston, the experiment is aiming at testing the growth of methanogen micro-organisms under conditions of space radiations and reduced gravity close to the ones present in the sub-surface of the planet Mars.

If successful, the experiment will demonstrate that microbes may develop in space under these conditions.
We are looking forward to having the experiment on board soon and thank Alec for his artistic and inspiring view on this exciting space program.
This program would not be possible without the financial support of the "Eurometropole de Strasbourg", thank you!
