Mars Regolith Simulant Vial

Mars Regolith Simulant Vial

30 total reviews



    This material is engineered to be chemically and physically identical to the surface dirt, called regolith, of planet Mars. NASA uses this material to test their rovers' performance abilities on the planet and to determine how well crops can be grown on Mars.

    It is made with terrestrial materials to match the compositional analysis performed by the Mars rovers. The high iron content is what gives Mars its reddish color.

      WE TAKE SCIENCE SERIOUSLY

      You deserve better than craft store science products. And we think learning is more impactful when you're holding a tangible piece of what you're learning about. That's why Stemcell exists.

      We're dedicated to providing the best scientific products available—whether they're fragments of scientific importance, experimental activities, or just interesting things that scratch your curiosity itch.

      With every new product launch, our list of new ideas gets longer rather than shorter. So check in often for our latest projects, and thanks for being a part of our endeavor to make the world a smarter place to live.

      Believe in yourself; for everything else, there's science.

      — TERRY MUDGE, FOUNDER & SCIENTIFIC DIRECTOR
