Mission One dropped basic tools and supplies on the surface of Mars. Managed from Earth by ISA stakeholders, “citizen-scientists” prepared for the first humans to come to Mars. Over 50,000 NFT supply crates were purchased by collectors within the first 24 hours resulting in over $1.3 million in sales.
ISA astronauts, the First Four, joined titans such as Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong in the pantheon of space exploration.
