Kampung Alien is essentially an open-air natural laboratory for the development and study of Astronomy, Space Science and Space Exploration in a rural, organic setting that is integrated with the village community and forms an ecosystem that directly involves the grassroots, bridging the gap in technological information and innovation movements.

Kampung Alien was officially inaugurated in July 2023 as part of the Indonesia UFO Festival 2023, coinciding with the celebration of Indonesia UFO Day which is held every 21 July. Various activities to introduce and educate about Mars exploration are being carried out on an ongoing basis in this natural laboratory, involving various community elements and in collaboration with diverse communities and related institutions.
