Getting humans to Mars begins at the South Pole

What once seemed like science fiction could become science fact, with Nasa administrator Charles Bolden saying in 2015 “we are farther down the path to sending humans to Mars than at any point in Nasa’s history”. The current target is for astronauts to leave for the Red Planet in the 2030s. But rocketing human beings to a planet that - depending on its orbit - can be 249 million miles away from terra firma, comes with its own complications. This is where Beth Healey comes in. Healey, 29, a polar scientist and former European Space Agency (Esa) Research MD Concordia, spending her time investigating how astronauts’ health could be affected in extreme environments far from home.

ESA/IPEV/PNRA–B. This has a number of knock-on effects. But that remoteness serves the Esa well. REMINISCING, The Little River Band. China: We will be on Mars by the end of 2020. China's ambitious and fast-growing space program is targeting a landing on the dark side of the moon by 2018, and reaching Mars before the end of the decade.

China: We will be on Mars by the end of 2020

The country's space agency held a press conference on Tuesday to mark the release of a policy paper, and outlined the government's goals for exploring deep space. Wu Yanhua, deputy chief of the National Space Administration, said Beijing aims to launch its first Mars probe around 2020 to carry out orbiting and roving exploration, followed by a second mission that would include collection of surface samples from the red planet.

He said other plans include sending probes to Jupiter and its moons. "Our overall goal is that, by around 2030, China will be among the major space powers of the world," he said. Latecomers playing aggressive game of catch-up China was late to the space race -- it didn't send its first satellite into space until 1970, just after the United States put the first man on the moon.

The Case for Colonizing Mars, by Robert Zubrin. From Ad Astra July/August 1996 Mars Is The New World Among extraterrestrial bodies in our solar system, Mars is singular in that it possesses all the raw materials required to support not only life, but a new branch of human civilization.

The Case for Colonizing Mars, by Robert Zubrin

This uniqueness is illustrated most clearly if we contrast Mars with the Earth's Moon, the most frequently cited alternative location for extraterrestrial human colonization. In contrast to the Moon, Mars is rich in carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen, all in biologically readily accessible forms such as carbon dioxide gas, nitrogen gas, and water ice and permafrost. Carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen are only present on the Moon in parts per million quantities, much like gold in seawater. The Moon is also deficient in about half the metals of interest to industrial society (copper, for example), as well as many other elements of interest such as sulfur and phosphorus.

Interplanetary Commerce Ideas may be another possible export for Martian colonists.

NASA, ESA experts insist successful Mars mission decades away

A new space race of sorts is in full swing, with corporations like SpaceX, Boeing and Mars One competing to be the first to mount a manned mission to the red planet. SpaceX, founded by battery billionaire Elon Musk, is leading the pack, with plans to send humans to Mars within eight years. Professor Mark McCaughrean, senior science adviser at the European Space Agency, said that aspiration is a stretch. "Every time people say, 'well we're going to be doing it in five or six years', they keep saying that for a while until you realise they don't have the technology in place," Professor McCaughrean said. "They don't have the money in place. Dr Abigail Allwood, a planetary scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said sending humans to Mars will take far more complex technology than is currently available. 'Feasible within 10 years'

(Image: Ren Wicks/NASA/JPL-Caltech) In 2016, this is what one vision of sending humans to Mars looks like: At the 67th International Astronautical Congress, in Guadalajara, Mexico, the billionaire inventor Elon Musk gave a speech that was more anticipated than any other he’s given. Musk has an incredible talent for making people feel like humanity is on the cusp of a new future (solar power! How Will a Human Mars Base Work? NASA's Vision in Images. To get astronauts from place to place on Mars, NASA is hoping to offer them more comfort than the simple dune buggies Apollo astronauts had on the moon in the 1970s.

Instead, the crew will work in pressurized rovers (seen at left, during a cargo transfer) that will have a greater range. It also will allow astronauts to take off their helmets while traveling (as long as the helmets are within easy reach for emergencies). The human Mars rover is still on the drawing board, but there are a few things that NASA is trying to learn from its robotic missions. For example, the Opportunity rover has tried to climb very steep slopes on Mars. Spirit got stuck in a sand trap and eventually died in one spot. This rover appears to be solar-powered, like the Spirit and Opportunity rovers.

NASA is looking for ideas that could make its Mars vehicles more affordable - The Verge. Here’s NASA’s three-step plan to colonize Mars. On Thursday, NASA released a three-step plan to bring humans to Mars sometime in 2030.

Here’s NASA’s three-step plan to colonize Mars

It’s simple! Sort of. In a report outlining the plan, the space agency did not hesitate to classify this as a colonial mission. “Like the Apollo Program, we embark on this journey for all humanity,” NASA noted, adding, “Unlike Apollo,we will be going to stay… We are developing the capabilities necessary to get there, land there, and live there.” The agency’s recent confirmation that there is liquid water on Mars is a good thing for those who want to set up camp on the red planet, but it doesn’t mean living on Mars will be easy. But NASA isn’t stepping away from the goal of a manned mission, and it sees three phases on the path to achieving it.

Colonization of Mars

Organizations have proposed plans for a human mission to Mars, the first step towards any colonization effort, but no person has set foot on the planet. However, landers and rovers have successfully explored the planetary surface and delivered information about conditions on the ground. Virtual visits to Mars, using haptic technologies, have been proposed, and may precede any real humans actually landing on the planet.[2]

Programs: Design Science Lab. By Medard Gabel Design Science is a methodology for recognizing, defining, and solving complex problems.

Programs: Design Science Lab

It is inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller and other planners, scientists, and visionaries. It takes a whole systems, global, and anticipatory approach that fosters creative collaboration and synergy in the development of comprehensive solutions to societal problems. Very briefly, design science is the comprehensive and anticipatory application of the principles of science to the creative design of solutions to the problems of society. It is a way of changing the world in preferred directions that is based on innovation and thrives on transparency. Design science is: • Comprehensive, in that it starts from the whole system and works back to the special case; it deals with all facets of a problem including the larger system of which the problem is a part; in this sense, design science seeks to build capacity, not just solve problems; The Buckminster Fuller Institute.

MaslowAndHomestead. Fisher’s Martian Life Support Hierarchy. The Case for Space: How the Revolution in Spaceflight Opens Up a Future of Limitless Possibility. Robert Zubrin tells the amazing true story of how hard-driving entrepreneurial ventures such as SpaceX and Blue Origin have accomplished what was previously thought of only as a capability of major-power governments: space exploration. He contends that private-sector competition will bring down the cost of space launches and in-space technology and shows how those trends are already underway. Zubrin’s book lays out a compelling vision for the future of humanity in space.

As space exploration increasingly becomes the domain of private companies and private citizens, humanity may be on the verge of a revolution in spaceflight that could open up a future of limitless possibility. Please join us to hear Zubrin’s presentation and comments by Berin Szóka. Will Mars Be a World Without Laws? Legal Basis for Settlement Panel - 19th Annual International Mars Society Convention. Land, ownership, law, rights. Space capitalism: Is asteroid mining and space colonization legal? Space Mining Projects Raise Legal Questions. GOLDEN, Colo. – Private groups are shaping business plans to tap into the resource-rich environs of outer space. Early celestial targets with commercial cross hairs on them are the moon, as well as asteroids. While the financial backing, technology and entrepreneurial spirit to mine asteroids and other space targets is jelling, yet to be grappled with is a mix of thorny issues, such as property and mineral rights, ownership and possession, international treaties, as well as the big "C" — not for Cosmos, but for Capitalism.

It’s true that in space nobody can hear you scream, but it's also assured that the voices from legal eagles will be soundly heard. A Space Resources Roundtable that convened here in June brought together experts to address off-Earth resources, private development and the legal issues ahead. The conference was convened by the Planetary and Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium, in collaboration with Colorado School of Mines and the Lunar and Planetary Institute. Eros Project: Legal Actions. The Eros Project "With this toehold, I will climb a mountain in Space. " Legal Actions Orbital Development is managing the Eros Project for Mr. Gregory W.
