Intro : The mission will launch in Alaska in June 12 2020 because a lot of space crafts are set there. Also in June its summer and the temperatures are harsh as they are in the winter time. The goal of traveling to mars is to colonize it and make it suitable to for humans to live there and settle. Also the air needs to be breathable so that people can breath well and not worry about the atmosphere. The amount of time it would take to get to mars would be six months and In addition, astronauts would have to stay 18-20 months on Mars before the planets re-align for a return trip. In all, the mission would take roughly 2 1/2 years. life support units have already been sent to mars to generate water , energy, breathable air. also living units have been sent to deploy inflatable habitats.
Crew: one of the crew members for the mission will be Buzz Aldrin because he was the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, he was one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, and the second person to walk on it.Aldrin graduated third in his class at West Point in 1951 with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering. He was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force and served as a jet fighter pilot during the Korean War. He flew 66 combat missions in F-86 Sabres and shot down two Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 aircraft. The June 8, 1953, issue of Life magazine featured gun camera photos taken by Aldrin of one of the Soviet pilots ejecting from his damaged aircraft. Another crew member is Neil Alden Armstrong because he was the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor. Before becoming an astronaut, Armstrong was an officer in the U.S. Navy and served in the Korean War. After the war, he earned his bachelor's degree at Purdue University and served as a test pilot at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) High-Speed Flight Station, where he logged over 900 flights. He later completed graduate studies at the University of Southern California. The third crew member is Alan LaVern Bean he is an American former naval officer and aviator, aeronautical engineer, test pilot, and NASA astronaut; he was the fourth person to walk on the Moon. He was selected to become an astronaut by NASA in 1963 as part of Astronaut Group 3. He made his first flight into space aboard Apollo 12, the second manned mission to land on the Moon, at the age of thirty-seven years in November 1969. He made his second and final flight into space on the Skylab 3 mission in 1973, the second manned mission to the Skylab space station. After retiring from the United States Navy in 1975 and NASA in 1981, he pursued his interest in painting, depicting various space-related scenes and documenting his own experiences in space as well as that of his fellow Apollo program astronauts. the fourth crew member is Charles Moss "Charlie" Duke, Jr he is an American engineer, retired U.S. Air Force officer, test pilot, and a former astronaut for NASA. As Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 16 in 1972, he became the tenth and youngest person to walk on the Moon. A former test pilot.Duke was commissioned upon graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1957. Entering the U.S. Air Force, he went to Spence Air Base in Georgia for primary flight training, then to Webb Air Force Base in Texas for basic flying training, where he graduated with distinction in 1958 as a member of Pilot Training Class 59-B. Duke completed advanced training on the F-86 Sabre aircraft at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia, where he was a distinguished graduate.The training they will have to go through as Astronauts will be to take classes. They must learn many things besides science. They also learn about medical procedures. Many times, they have to give speeches, so they take public speaking classes. In order to be prepared for any emergency, astronauts take survival training. If you are going to be a crew member on the ISS, you will also have to take language classes. You will need to be able to talk with the Russian Mission Control Center. and In order for astronauts to get a feel for what they will be doing in space, they practice on life-sized models. These models are called "mock-ups." The Space Vehicle Mock-up Facility (SVMF) is where they practice. In the SVMF, astronauts practice using the Space Shuttle Orbiter and parts of the ISS. In these mock-ups, astronauts will learn how they will move about.
Space travel: the space craft will have to be big , tall and have powerful rockets to send the rocket to to space, It will also need enough fuel to last 6 months and it will have to be big enough to carry a lot of people. And we would need to have equipment fit to protect the crew and the ship. For example there will be a spinning room inside the ship so that the astronauts can exercise their muscles and bones. and they will need special space suits to protect them from the radiation on mars. the space ship will need armored walls to protect it from space debris so that it wont puncture the ship and it will need to deflect radiation away from it so that it wont affect the crew members , it could use some magnetic field in the ship that deflects radiation. They will need certain things for when they do get to mars like something to generate power for their technology. Also they wood need a large amount of food and water supply in order to survive, and they would need something that produces oxygen for the crew. Portable shelters will also be necessary so that they can preform research and live inside of them.
Living on Mars: their living environment will be in portable houses or underground so that they wont have to breath mars air and they could provide oxygen for them and they could have running water and plumbing, and AC so that they can control the temperature. Some additions that they will need on mars to provide food and water, they will need a green house to grow fresh fruits and vegetables to eat , they will also need water towers to contain fresh water. Also some experiments need to be done in order to colonize mars, experiments like growing food will need to be done to make sure that the fruits and vegetables don't die and grow healthy, and for that they need a fully working greenhouse that provides sun and water. There will also need to experiment expansion of mars and settlements they would need to improve and upgrade a lot in order to fully colonize it, they would need to experiment a type of government because it needs to be civilized and fully functional because people cant live without laws.
