We will launch from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Russia on October 24, 2020.
the goal of the mission is to put a dent into space exploration by putting astronauts onto the Red Planet to set up a small colony which will hopefully put half of the human population onto the planet by 2034.
This mission is deemed to take eighteen months to two years to complete.
the most important thing that we astronauts have had to do this past year was bringing some supplies and resources together that will get to Mars ahead of us.
so we will being by selecting four astronauts for the mission and two doctors, and they will be sent up to Mars, first thing they will do is circle the planet then secondly they will go down into the Red Planet . they will stay their and set up a a small colony with specimens that they have brought and live their for 3 months then they will head back.
Boris Afanasy is the going to be the leader of the mission he is 35 and has met all the requirements to be fit as leader. the most impressive of the requirements that he has done is instead of the mandatory 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft, he has done 6,000 hours. out of all the most important parts of becoming an astronaut he is also resourceful and mentally stable.
David Alexander is going to be co-leader to Boris and is an ex-air force pilot who we at NASA called last summer to interview about the position, and from what he has told and his records he has almost completed all the mandatory requirements to be co-leader, though the final requirement he needs done that we have given him leniency on is the final 2 hours to make the minimal 1,000 hours mark.
Raphaël Clément is a French nationalist whom has met all the requirements needed to be chief doctor on board, he has gone to the University of Michigan Medical School and has gotten his P.h.D in medicine.
The fourth and final person is Anatole Aquinas a 29 year old Harvard grad who has devoted his studies to the Astronomical Theories of living on alien planets, he will be the third and final astronaut on this mission.
They all must at least have the minimal requirements that are listed at NASA.org and must at least have shown that they understand that they once they go their is no turning back unless a malfunction, they must be both mentally, meaning that they are able to control their emotions and not fall into depression either during the 6 week training and contamination process and during their time and space.
They each must have gone through contamination in case of infectious diseases and/or physical ailments found.
To travel and get to Mars we have almost completed the Space X Spacecraft that is going to be used for this mission its design is a rather complicated one it has taken since 2016 to complete its an Falcon 9 (a two stage rocket designed craft.) and was designed from the ground up for maximum reliability.
What we have figured out as scientists that will help at least slow the muscle decaying is that we will not put any workout machines on the aircraft and instead in place put a self serving food machine that will help with the muscle decaying problem.
Well Space X naturally has a hard stainless steel structure that is heat resistance and that will help protect the craft itself against meteoroids and other space debris and the harmful radiation that is found in space.
We at NASA told the crew that they must bring a picture of their family or whom ever is closest to them so they remember what they are sacrificing their next few years in space for, and that they should bring some books or magazines that'll keep them occupied when we are not exploring space or outside.
Living on Mars
The living temperatures on mars is below Celsius and the crew will have to be kept warm to keep from being freezing.
The space station will keep them safe from the dangers of living on Mars by they will keep the climate inside a mixture between semi-warm and semi-cold.
Their will be additional things that will be sent up with them to insure their continual health, for instance we will send up juice packets and frozen food for the astronauts to make in ovens that will have been sent up ahead of their flight. they will be suited with 2 different types of spacesuits to give them the proper space wear in case they need to be kept warm on a cold day and vice-versa.
Well luckily for our mission we have actually done all the experiments needed hence is why we are going to Mars to colonize.
