The Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Team Needs Your Help. The Barboza Space Center is collaborating with Antarctic explorer Doug Stoup. We want to conduct a student science experiment at the South Pole. Our team is leaving for Antarctica this December, 2016. We are looking for a science experiment that we can conduct on Earth that will help us with studying about Mars. This is a great opportunity for you to get creative and to help our team to get ready to occupy Mars.
