"LEAVE YOUR MARK"
Train until survival is your only option. Under Armour has partnered with the Ares Space Program to provide next-generation training gear designed for optimal mobility, comfort, advanced biometric data, and protection in the most demanding environment of all: space. This content was part of a comprehensive integrated partnership with Under Armour for Ridley Scott's The Martian. Our goal was to explore the cultural impact of a fictional manned mission to Mars by asking a simple question: what if Astronauts were sponsored by brands in the year 2035?
The crew of The Martian's ARES III have climbed many mountains. Their education, training, and intense physical preparation have all led them to this moment. But they all started as beginners. They were not born engineers, geologists, nor physicists. “Leave Your Mark" is a celebration of those that understand that greatness isn’t in the destination itself, but in the journey to get there. It’s in the constant repetition of drills and training and preparation. It’s waking up early, while everyone else is asleep. It’s those extra strength and endurance workouts to prepare for the challenges of long-duration space flight. It’s the hundreds of hours spent drilling for every scenario imaginable, because when you’re an astronaut, you have to train like survival is your only option.
