Gale Crater Trail Party

April 1 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Join TKO as we clear a trail for the Perseverance Rover!

Crew Leaders: Perseverance R. and Curiosity R.

Max Size of Crew: 12

Hike Distance: 34,000,000 miles

Elevation Gain: (in ft) ~ 2.64e+6 ft.

Hike Difficulty: Moderate

Work Difficulty: Easy

Work Description: New trail building

Project Overview:

TKO has been tasked by NASA to create the first ever hiking trail on Mars! This route will be used by the Perseverance rover as it makes its journey on the red planet.

Hiking information:

Most of this journey will take place on a space ship, and will require minimal exertion. The work will be conducted in a very low gravity environment which should make hauling the tools fairly easy as well.

What to expect:

You should expect to have a good sense of humor to participate in this trail party. TKO will provide hard hats, but you will need to bring your own space suit.

Happy April Fools Day!
