For the first time in history, a new temporal and technological window is open: humanity is able to link another planet, Mars, in a single generation… This alignment of planets is contemporary of geopolitical stakes and of the rise of a private space, which impulses and increases new exploration fields and space experiences. Why and how linking another planet to our world? What is the urgency? Why Mars and how to live on it? These scientific, technological and philosophical questions, common to great societal challenges, deal with Life in Universe and comparative planetology. They suppose a collective awareness federating cooperation and inspiration, and they put us in a new perspective. It is finally the question of being human in all our dimensions and our future: the space travel implying also a subjective time, what will be our time perception towards and on Mars, and beyond? The key of such civilizational transition, towards a durable interplanetary history, convenes finally social and developmental psychology and links present, past and future of humans towards a better world, complex and open to our shared intentions.
