A world premier performance of the Red Planet anthem “Rise to Mars!

From the caption:

Rise to Mars! Men and women
Dare to dream! Dare to strive!
Build a home for our children
Make this desert come alive!

There are challenges before our eyes
That nature never knew
But the power of human enterprise
Shall take us through and through!

Rise to Mars! Men and women
Dare to dream! Dare to strive
Build a home for our children
Make this desert come alive!

Come along raging nations
Altogether hopeful spirits
Bring an end to strife
For our future lies beyond the skies

Rise to Mars! Men and women
Dare to dream! Dare to strive!
Build a home for our children
Make this desert come alive!

Come along, altogether
For our future
Rise to Mars!
