Welcome to "Be a Martian" project

be a martian

Mars exploration is a civilization endeavor, no longer restricted to the interpid few, but to all who wish to share in the journey of discovery.

Help the NASA Be A Martian project create more detailed maps of Mars, and count and classify craters on Mars, from high-resolution images returned from Mars orbiters. Watch some videos to learn about why the project is mapping Mars and how to help.
