We haven’t made it to Mars quite yet, but now we can sample life on the Red Planet right here on Earth. The Chinese-built C-Space Mars Base 1 in the Gobi desert was created to simulate a station on the fourth planet from our fiery sun.

Giving us a glimpse into the future, Mars Base 1 consists of one main living space and nine other separate modules, including a greenhouse and airlock. It has some Tatooine vibes and features a mysterious black monolith similar to the one seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The China National Space Administration program is set on sending a man to the moon with plans to Mars somewhere down the road. But for now, this station simulation straight from a sci-fi film is a solid start. In the near future, Mars Base 1 will open up to the public as a tourist destination complete with a space-themed hotel and restaurant. And with the help of the Astronauts Center of China, it will also turn into an astronaut training center.
