Transcript of Space Mission: Mars One

OBJECTIVE WHAT WILL BE LEARNED HOW THE MISSION WILL BE DONE The objective of the Mars One mission is to organize a human colony on Mars by 2023. This will be made possible by the cooperation of corporations who are able to supply the technologies needed. The goal or what is to be learned is just that mankind can explore outer space and to teach younger generations that this is possible. In the first year of planning for the mission, the Mars One program contacted other corporations and space experts to find out if it was possible.
Then letters of interest were sent in my different companies all over the world to show they would provide CURRENT technologies and other materials.
And this will all be payed for via a large media coverage of everything from astronaut recruitment to landing on the red planet. http://www.cleanvideosearch.com/media/action/yt/watch?v=n4tgkyUBkbY OTHER INFORMATION (http://mars-one.com/en/mission/mission-and-vision video http://www.paperdroids.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/mars-one.jpg?w=300 background 2013: The first 40 astronauts will be selected a replica of the settlement will be built for training purposes.
2014: The first communication satellite will be produced.
2016: A supply mission will be launched with 2500 kilograms of food in a modified SpaceX Dragon.
2018: An exploration vehicle will launch to pick the location of the settlement.
2021: Six additional Dragon capsules and another rover will launch with two living units, two life support units and two supply units.
2022: A SpaceX Falcon Heavy will launch with the first group of four colonists.
2023: The first colonists will arrive on Mars in a modified Dragon capsule.
2025: A second group of four colonists will arrive.
2033: The colony will reach 20 settlers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_One Technologies:
-Mars Transit Vehicle
-Communications system
-Life Support Unit
-Supply Unit
-Living Unit
-Mars Suit
The Mars One company will hold a worldwide lottery in 2013 to select 40 people for a training team. After they have selected the people they will then make a training area in a desert somewhere in the United States. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/07/24/is-mars-one-serious-about-suicide-mission-to-red-planet/ Issues:
Colonists would have to grow plants using a chemical process called hydroponics, which does not use soil.
The spaceship design will have to be large enough to house passengers and have enough fuel to reach Mars
Mars is about 34 million miles from Earth at the closest launch point and orbital position. By 2023 the goal is also to have a group of humans living on Mars http://mars-one.com/en/mission/mission-and-vision Hydroponics:
the cultivation of plants by placing the roots in liquid nutrient solutions rather than in soil; soilless growth of plants. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/hydroponics?s=t
The lower age limit for applicants to start training is 21 years old.

Country of origin and language:
Mars One will accept applicants from any country. The official language will be English.

Training / education:
On Mars, the primary responsibility for the astronauts is to keep everything, and everyone, up and running. The astronauts will learn most of the required specialist skills during the extensive training program. Examples are engineers or emergency doctors. Science will also become be an important part of the astronauts' daily tasks. This will require, for example, skills in biology and geology. http://mars-one.com/en/faq-en/21-faq-selection/251-do-i-qualify-to-apply Water:
On Mars, water can be extracted from the soil. The Rover will select the location for the settlement primarily based on the water content in the soil. The Rover will deposit soil into a water extractor in the life support units. The water extractor will heat the soil until the water evaporates. The evaporated water will be condensed and stored, the dry soil expelled, and the process repeated to extract more water.

Oxygen can be produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen will be used to provide a breathable atmosphere in the Living Units.

Food production on Mars:
When the astronauts land, there will be limited food available for them to use. Food from Earth will only be used in emergencies. The astronauts will eat fresh food that they produce on Mars.
