All the above are the Mars Lab achievements at August, 2014 – at all happened in just 14 months. The project is the result of a consortium led by the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at the University of New South Wales, the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney and the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, where the Mars Yard is located.
