Mars Mission Libby tomanek Period 5 12/9/16

We will be launching our spaceship on September 5, 2020, we will launch in Houston, Texas. The goal of the mission is to find other species of life on earth. It will take 2 years to get there and they will be on the planet for 3 years checking out the planet and 2 years to return. We will be bringing communication equipment, fuels and other sources for energy, resource extraction equipment, food, and when they get there we will send another spaceship with more equipment.

On September 5th, 2020 we launched the spacecraft into orbit heading to Mars. We launched in Houston Texas in the middle of no where with lots of people watching on TV. The launch was a success and the astronauts were going up. Once into orbit the astronauts set off to mars, 2 years later they finally got to mars and landed, they told Houston that they have landed and made it safely. They got their space suits on and got ready to go out and walk around and look around, after a hour they found a good spot to start to set up their living area. They take a nap, when they wake up they eat some food and get ready to start some research and observe mars. They take notes about mars weather and just observations about mars. One year later their extra supplies lands and they have to go out and find where it landed and collect the supplies. There was more food and more fuel for the way back and other basic necessities.

For crew selection I'm taking Buzz Aldrin, he was a pilot, engineer, and astronaut. He was also a fighter pilot, got a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering, he also earned a SCD degree in astronautics from M.I.T. Neil Armstrong was the Mission commander, first person to walk on the moon, aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot at National advisory committee for Aeronautics High speed flight station, he logged over 900 flights, university professor, officer in U.S Navy, has a bachelor's degree at Purdue University, completed graduate school at the university of southern California, participant in U.S Air Force's Man in space soonest, Sally Ride was an American physicist, worked at Stanford University center for international security and Arms control for 2 years, worked at University of California as a professor of physics, bachelor degree in English and physics, got a master degree and a PHD in physics, was the capsule communicator, David Scott is a American engineer, U.S Air force a officer, test pilot, graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point, Colonel, attended University of Michigan for one year, Tactical fighter, went to M.I.T, got a master of science degree in Aeronautics/Astronautics and a degree in Engineer in Aeronautics Astronautics, received an honor doctorate of Astronautical science from the University of Michigan.To become an astronaut you need Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics. An advanced degree is desirable. Quality of academic preparation is important. At least 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Flight test experience is highly desirable. Ability to pass a NASA space physical which is similar to a military or civilian flight physical and includes the following specific standards, and need 20 months of training.

The spacecraft needed to launch from earth and travel through space is fuel, and it will have a raptor engine and plasma rockets, the design is like a regular spaceship, its pretty big and will be able to take lots of equipment up to mars, it will prevent dangers from the crew members of long distance by using bullet enforced and foam to prevent space debre, we will prevent bone decay, radiation by using space suits that will keep them safe from radiation, they will try to work out and keep moving to prevent bone decay. They need to take space food, fuel, resource extraction equipment, storage facility, communication equipment, and habitats.

The living conditions on mars are lots of dust storms, the atmospheric pressure is low, the wind is low thermal inertia which means it heats quickly when the sun shines, the storms last for at least a month. The space station will keep them same from the dangers of living on mars because it will the have the bullet enforced and foam to prevent space debre, their space suits will keep them safe because there will be oxygen and away from radiation and air pressure. To sustain life on mars is food, water, space suits to prevent the different air pressure, keep them warm from the weather. They will need a big spaceship to hold lots of people to take up to space. The experiments they will do when they reach mars is observe the weather to see what kind of conditions they will be living on one day, how long the storms last, look for water and see if its drinkable, see if you can grow food on mars, test air pressure.
