General overview:

There is a future - our planet in 303 years, in 2424. The situation on Earth is poor due to climate change, many species have already become extinct and humanity is looking for a new home on Mars. The spacecraft NOA is about to take off for Mars - Now is the Time, which can bring with it a limited number of species and resources. Different groups - food producers, scientists, government, giants (corporations) and cultural figures - need to agree on which species and stocks to bring. What choices do you make?
