Wizje podboju Marsa. Od literackiej dystopii do kluczowych decyzji politycznych

Bartosz Smolik


The aim of this article is to outline the vision for colonisation of Mars. In the article I answer
the following questions: what motivates individual persons, communities and states to
head in this direction? Also: why has Mars of all planets become an object of fantasy of
daydreamers, enthusiasts, experts in astronautics, and – increasingly – politicians? I briefly
describe the genesis of mass interest in the Red Planet, development of literature and fantasy
and science fantasy films. I outline past and present manned Mars mission and colonisation
plans as well as political and economic prospects arising out of the planet’s conquest by the
greatest powers in the world.
Key words: Mars, dystopia, science fiction, space policy, political decision
