Life On Mars Habitation Pod Concept Featured At Goodward 2018Back

Ever wondered what life might be like if we went to Mars? Foster + Partners will be showcasing a scale model based on its Mars and lunar habitation pod designs at Goodward Festival of Speed 2018.

The habitation pod designed by Foster + Partners will present a vision of life on Mars and the Moon and will show a range of models, robotics and futuristic designs developed by the form to explore the future of life in space.

Forming a central part of its display will be a scale model based on the Mars and lunar habitation pods it has designed, while through a virtual reality animation, visitors will be able to see inside one of the proposed state-of-the-art habitation pods.

Staged every summer since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by MasterCard is the world’s largest automotive garden party; set against the spectacular backdrop of Goodwood House in West Sussex, UK.

Over 600 cars and motorcycles spanning the phenomenal history of motoring and motor sport take part with some of the most legendary figures from the sport as well as international celebrities regularly attending.

Highlights at this year’s event will include the Moving Motor Show, Forest Rally Stage, Michelin Supercar Paddock, Michelin Supercar Run, F1 paddock, Drivers’ Club, GAS Arena, Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d’Elegance, Aviation Exhibition and Bonhams Auction.

Foster + Partners is taking a central position at this year’s FoS Future Lab, which is focusing on space exploration, autonomous transport, robotics, and personal flight. Visitors will be able to view displays and demonstrations, interact with some of the technology for themselves and learn more about these exciting innovations.

Foster + Partners continues to work on projects that look at developing habitats on the Moon and Mars using a wide variety of technologies such as large-scale 3D-printing, robotics and Regolith Additive Construction. A wide range of these techniques will be displayed at the expo, bringing the possibilities of creating an extraterrestrial habitat to life for visitors.

Children will also be able to get hands-on with a space-age, interactive sandpit filled with simulated Mars dust and remote-control caterpillar robots.

David Summerfield, Head of Studio at Foster + Partners, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to show how technology can enable us to create extraterrestrial settlements.

“We hope visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed will come away from the display excited and enthused about the possibilities of the future and that it will inspire the next generation to reach for the stars.”

FoS Future Lab will be open to the public throughout the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which runs from the 12 – 15 July 2018, 7am – 7pm each day.
