A feature-length documentary about the colonization and terraformation of Mars is under production. Directed by Scott Gill, the documentary, entitled The Mars Underground, features Dr. Robert Zubrin, founder and president of the Mars Society, and his now-canonical plan for reaching Mars, Mars Direct. Also appearing in the film are Chris McKay, Penny Boston, Louis Friedman, and many others from NASA. Scott sent us this tidbit:

There is a new feature documentary coming out about the scientific and political struggle to get the first human mission to Mars off the ground. Full of state-of-the-art 3D animation, the film goes on a spellbinding journey to the red planet and envisions a future Mars transformed into a green world.

There is no release date yet, but stay tuned for updates. In the mean time, check out the inspiring and exciting trailer from the official website at
