My mission will be launched in Florida. I choose this place because it has the large area and it doesn't affect to people or anything around it. It will launch in January, 2019. The goal of our mission is to explore about the colonizing of Mars planet and some experiments on there. It would take about 942 hours (39 days) of closest approach, 6,944 hours (289 days) of farthest approach, 3,888 hours (162 days) on average. There are not any supplies or resources that have already been sent to Mars.
In my mission has four crew members:
-Tom: he is a physical science. He is an engineer, he solves any electronic problems in our mission.
-Jack: he is a flight engineer. He has the roles to realizes and fixes the errors when we find it on our flight.
-Michele: he is a biological science. He researches and helps the other crew members to adapt with the different environment.
-Jimmy: he is a technology science. His roles is to control the radar, fixes and update the data of our mission.
The training they have had to do their job is participate voluntarily, be a U.S. citizen or national. Be at least 21 years of age. Be free from any emotional or mental condition which might adversely affect the exercise of the requirements of the position. Have successfully completed a basic law enforcement training certificated program conducted bu an entity authorized to train persons to perform as a law enforcement officer. Be an active law enforcement officer in good standing. Not have been terminated by a previous law enforcement employer or have had an approval or authorization revoked by the TSA. Not have had a certification revoked by TSA.
The spacecraft that is needed to launch from Earth, travel through space, and land on Mars is Falcon 9. Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. As the first rocket completely developed in the 21st century, Falcon 9 was designed from the ground up for maximum reliability. Falcon 9’s simple two-stage configuration minimizes the number of separation events -- and with nine first-stage engines, it can safely complete its mission even in the event of an engine shutdown.
To prevent the crew from the dangers of long distance space travel is the ship needs to be reinforced with steel to prevent radiation and micrometeorites from getting into the ship. The ship needs to have ceramic tiles on the outside to block the radiation from getting into the ship. Centrifugal force machine to put pressure on the astronauts’ bodies. Astronauts also are required to do physical exercise. Things will need to take with them to them when they reach Mars is foods, water, oxygen, personal stuff. The amount that depends on each person and it has to be fit.
Living on Mars
The temperature from -200 F degree to 136 F degree. Its thin air and vast distance from the sun-one Martian orbit takes nearly two Earth years to complete-make it susceptible to wild temperature swings. Mars has the an atmospheric pressure that is just 0.6 percent of Earth's. A more robust atmosphere may once have supported large bodies of water.
They live in Lava tubs. Lava tubs are cave-like conduits formed underground by cooled, hardened lava after molten rock has flowed through. Scientists say the ones on Mars may be significantly larger than those on Earth. The interiors of the Martian tubes, hidden under dozens of feet of solid rock, are protected from cosmic and solar radiation and fluctuating temperatures on the harsh, dusty surface.
For the sustaining life, it includes the losing taste of foods, the foods have bad-looking but they can use it for long time. And it’s very hard to eat. The suit space provide the necessary pressure directly to the skin. The space suit not to big and it is tight to the body and easy to move around.The hard back plate will support the oxygen tanks needed for breathing. You can breath easy. They recycle the water to reuse.
The experiments they will do is to explore some new thing on the Mars. They will get to know how much water on the Mars. They will melt the huge amount of ice on Mars’ south pole. Speed things up by pumping super greenhouse-y gases into the air. They will try to know does the Mars have any resources. They can experiments to know how they can grow some plants on Mars.
