Transcript of Grade 9 ACADEMIC CULMINATING TASK

Colonization Of Mars COLONIZATION OF MARS Sustainable ecosystem on Mars Mars information Cons Power/Electricity Intro References Radius: 3,389 km
Gravity: 3.711 m/s² ( metres per second square )
Orbital period: 686.971 days
Mars has two moons : Phobos and Demios
It is the fourth planet from the sun
Mars is the second smallest planet in our solar system
Length of day: 1d 0h 40m
Distance from Sun: 227,900,000 km ( 2 billion, 27 million, 900 thousand.) Mars is further from earth than the moon which means it will take a longer time to transport the items we would need to survive.

Low gravity which means we will have to wear space suits.

Mars has dust storms that can last for over month and cover a large portion of mars which means we will need to find artificial light and heat at night time.

Because of mars thin atmosphere meteorites will do more damage than they would if it was to hit earth.

The atmosphere of mars is very thin, it is less than one one- hundredth that of Earth.

Because of the conditions of mars, the planet can't support liquid water.

The cost to colonize mars would be much more than the cost to colonize the moon. Once we colonize mars I have two methods of powering the " Red Planet ". My first method would be to build wind turbines that convert the energy of the wind into electricity, this is my best method because during dust storms that occur on mars frequently, wind speeds range from 80-120 mph so that would be a lot of electricity being generated at the time. My second method to power the planet would be to use Photovoltaic systems that would convert the sunlight into electricity. The problems with using solar power is that during dust storms you wont get any sunlight and during the storm it picks up a lot of dust due to the low gravity so that means the dust would go on the panel and cover it.

It would cost millions of dollars to power mars and billions to transport people and build a colony on mars.
A sustainable ecosystem would be created on Mars to support human life indefinitely by first warming up the planet because the planet is way to cold to support human life, so the best way to do that is to create factories that create greenhouse gases to thicken the atmosphere. All human life started with plants so we would need to grow plants and the only way to do that is to build greenhouses, we would also have to create biodomes ( closed ecological systems ) for us to live in as well due to the conditions. We would have to wear space suits and oxygen tanks, if we were to live in mars because the gravity is lower than earth's and there is little oxygen. The good thing about building mars from scratch is that we get to fix all the problems we had on earth ahead of time like pollution. The ideal place for humans to colonize would be midland areas or polar ice caps because of the large water reserve.

Today I'm going to be talking about the colonization of mars to continue the expansion of
the human race. I chose to colonize mars over the moon because, mars is similar to earth, there is a large availability of frozen water, the gravity of mars is closer to the gravity of earth than the moon, the axial tilt is close to earth which means we would have similar seasons but would be twice as long. It would be smarter to colonize other regions of our universe to keep the human race growing because soon the earth is going to reach its carrying capacity. There are also some cons/difficulties with colonizing mars that we will have to find a way to fix. http://cmex.ihmc.us/voviews/eartmars.htm Elements Mars in the future Mars already has the following elements on the planet: Calcium, Sulfur, Aluminum, Sodium, Potassium, Oxygen, Silicon, Iron and Magnesium. We will have to mine to find some of these elements. Even though mars has oxygen, it has a little amount, so we would still have to transport more oxygen to the planet. Here are some vital elements needed to sustain human life carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen.
