The specific goals of APM, as appearing in its statutes, are to promote

  • a robust, comprehensive and balanced exploration of Mars, both robotic and manned, to the benefit of the many involved scientific domains, as well as in preparation of the future settlement of the planet;
  • the arrival of man to this world, perceived as a new field for humanity activities development;
  • the pursuit of theses goals through international cooperation, as such an endeavour constitutes a political instrument of choice for a harmonious development of nations and could not be conceived outside of the scope of humanity as a whole;
  • a major involvement of France and Europe in this endeavour.
