MMS-1 Mojave Mars Simulant

from 5.99

As close as you can get to Mars without leaving Earth.

Mojave Mars Simulant was developed by NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in 2007 for use in testing the Mars Phoenix lander.

We source high-quality, iron-rich basalt from the same sources used by NASA and the JPL. These rocks are mechanically crushed and size-sorted to coarse, fine, and superfine grades. After processing and sorting, each batch is baked and autoclaved to minimize biotic content.

Grades:
Unsorted: Ranges from small rocks to dust
Coarse: Particles larger than 1mm
Fine: Particles smaller than 1mm
Superfine: Particles smaller than 0.6mm

Which Simulant Is Right For You?

Mojave Mars Simulant - Unsorted

Unsorted Mojave Mars Simulant is an economical grade that supports large-scale projects well. It's particularly well suited to gardening applications, where the blend of many particle sizes prevents root circling and clay formation. 

All particle sizes are present, up to about 15 mm. 

Mojave Mars Simulant - Coarse

This grade is an excellent choice for very large scale Mars simulant projects, including dioramas, displays, and outdoor gardens. Its large particle size and low dust portion creates air pockets, reducing its density compared to other grades.

Coarse MMS consists only of particles sized 1 mm and larger, with the majority in the 3-5 mm range. 

 

 

Mojave Mars Simulant - Fine

Fine Grade MMS is our flagship simulant. It is an excellent all-around Mars simulant. With a mix of small particles and dust, it is excellent for research applications as well as gardens. 

Fine MMS contains particles that are 1mm and smaller.

Mojave Mars Simulant - Superfine

Superfine Mojave Mars Simulant is as close to Mars regolith as it gets. Its tiny, dust-like particles closely mimic the behavior of Martian soil. This material is best suited for research purposes.

Superfine MMS contains particles 0.6 mm and smaller.
