Where the Spaceola story begins
The Spaceola story begins with retired NASA engineers, technicians, and their flight-tested technology from the 1960's.
Retired engineers have designed and built all the things residents & tourists need to live and thrive on the surface of Mars.
Standing on the shoulders of giants
Spaceola’s work has been inspired by the work of NASA and today’s exciting space exploration companies. Nearly all Spaceola equipment is salvaged and donated from archives, warehouses, and private collections.
"We found old IBM machines locked away in store rooms," said Larry Zottarelli, a retired Voyager engineer and coder.
After Spaceola's first test flights were completed, manned Spaceola trips to Mars became commonplace.
Farming and tourism on Mars
Farms will support the Mars residents and the beautiful Syrtis Dude Ranch will open to Tourists.
Farms will be named Victrola™, Motorola™, and Crayola™.
"'Ola!," said Ellen Ochoa, a retired NASA engineer, Shuttle astronaut, former director of the Johnson Space Center and the first Hispanic woman to go to space.
