Marsarium 9

Marsarium 9 was a terrarium with authentic martian growing conditions on the inside. Accurate martian soil was developed from data collected by NASA’s opportunity and curiosity rovers. A plant is transplanted into the Marsarium and the atmosphere ‘marsified’, and the atmosphere within is replaced with a martian analogue of 96% CO2, 2% Ar and 2% N2. A ceiling mounted ‘flight recorder’ creates a timelapse of the mission which is displayed alongside the marsarium.
