The PLANMAP outreach program based on drawings is carried out by the UNIPD members and sustained by professional artists and the editors of the PLANCK journal. The program will envisage up to 24 illustrations subdivided on the bases of the different scopes and audiences: 9 illustrations are dedicated to kids, 9 of them will constitute a Comics series telling planetary geological mapping during the project development; finally 6 of them, that go under the name of Drawing the Future, will be used to populate the web-site and will depict how planetary exploration will be in the near future also thanks to PLANMAP products. Most of them will be delivered also as flyers on whose reverse side will appear sentences recalling the PLANMAP project activities.

Drawing for Kids: Carlotta Montagna

The future of human exploration of planetary bodies will require great preparation. Geological maps are a key component to prepare and succesfully accomplish future missions.

The planetary bodies under the surface are largerly unknown due to the limitations of direct observations. Geologists can apply the same techniques used on Earth to infer some of the properties of the shallow subsurface. Here an explorer observing the 3D geological model of an outcrop on Mars in augmented reality thanks to augmented reality.

A futuristic settlement on the Moon. A key research topic for building these infrastructures is the sourcing of building material that need to be available in place, which will require an extended understang of the available depositis and their subsurface.

Human exploration requires a great amount of preparation under many aspects, as for example a detailed understanding og the terrains and their geology. Here a future explorer receives instructions and guidance from a remote control center.

Planmap' sountrack: Ivan Fantino

Ivan Fantino is an italian multi-instrumentalist that works in many active projects. He plays guitar, bass guitar, and keyboard and thanks to his remarkable versatility he has many different ongoing projects. The love for instrumental music and emotions it transmits led Ivan to become his own producer and started his personal project called ITH in 2018. Between djent and postrock, the ITH Project wants to explore the baffling emotions and feelings of dreams from the point of view of a blind child. Inspired by Plini, David Maxim Micic and similar artists, ITH is a onemanband project with exploration desire at its core and each song has references to space, stars and science. In September 2019 ITH realesed his first single and so the project began. After that ITH released other singles and an EP called "Circles". The single Flair was realised in collaboration with the PlanMap project and was created as a gift for the team to support scientific research and their work.
