About us

We are a highly motivated team of aspiring space explorers dedicated to contribute to space science and education.


In 2019, Laurène and Marta met through a competition for astronaut training. Both passionate about space exploration and dedicated to women empowerment initiatives, they had the crazy idea to build an all-female team and answer the Mars Society, USA call for application for their space analogue program. Very quickly, the two young women contacted their closest friends involved in space exploration and in October 2019, WoMars was born!

During the preparation of this first mission, the team realized that WoMars had a much greater potential than a single space analogue mission. In October 2020, the WoMars Organisation was born, fully dedicated to encourage and support young women in space exploration.
