The Passage to Mars Trailer

"Before man makes it to Mars, he must conquer the Arctic." IFC Films & Sundance Selects have debuted a trailer for a film called Passage to Mars, an experimental doc with narration by Zachary Quinto retelling some of the stories from the crew on NASA's Arctic expedition. As a test to see if astronauts could survive on Mars, NASA sent a team of six people on a 2,000-mile journey up into the Northwest Passage in the Arctic - this film recounts their voyage. "As an expedition that was supposed to take weeks stretches into a two-year odyssey, the crew must overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges and life-threatening conditions if they hope to realize their dreams of someday reaching the Red Planet." James Cameron even loved this film.

Here's the official trailer for Jean-Christophe Jeauffre's The Passage to Mars, direct from YouTube:

The Passage to Mars

Passage to Mars is the incredible true story of six men who embark on a treacherous, 2,000-mile journey across the forbidding tundra of the Northwest Passage—an alien voyage on planet Earth designed to prepare NASA astronauts for an eventual mission to Mars. A voyage of fears and survival, hopes and dreams, through the beauties and the deadly dangers of two worlds: the High Arctic and Mars, a planet that might hide the secret of our origins. Passage to Mars is made by French filmmaker Jean-Christophe Jeauffre, of other docs including Whales of Atlantis: In Search of Moby Dick and 100 Years Under the Sea: Shipwrecks of the Caribbean. The film is co-written by Jeauffre and Pascal Lee. Sundance Selects will release Passage to Mars in select theaters + on VOD starting September 30th this month. Who's curious?

Why explore other planets when ours is still such a mystery? (And yes, I know the answer to this question)

I agree, it's a legitimate question ...

On one side, I would like to live two hundred years from now just to find out if true space travelling is possible. On the other side, why wouldn't we fix our world firstly, before visiting another..?
