Mars has been, and is, a mirror of life on Earth. While it is not yet, and for a long time, a viable “planet B” option, it allows us to investigate both our human condition and our future on earth as a species in this age of climate change.

Mars as an inspiring subject, is addressed in this catalog, from the point of view of science, history, art, literature, comics, current events ... and the result is a polysemous and open story: Carl Sagan, Giovanni Schiaparelli, Galileo Galilei, H.G. Wells, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Asimov, Percival Lowell, Josep Comas i Solà, Konstantin Tsiolkovski, Hélène Smith, Ray Bradbury, Kim Stanley Robinson, current missions to Mars, etc.
