Re: Air. Shelter. Water. Food.

I am getting an out of sync error for the next page 23 #551 for the topic.

This seems to be the most viable to pan a mission with.

Roughly 2.6 years of experience CONJUNCTION: LONG-STAY Over 500 days at Mars with crew transit time between Earth and Mars: 160 – 180 days.

Give a few weeks as margin on all needs.

Re: Air. Shelter. Water. Food.

Thanks to Void we have another to make use of in "Mars Direct 3 is a Mars mission architecture developed by Miguel Gurrea" topic.

Plus Mars direct was a 40mT payload

A reuseable craft requires the means to make the fuel of choice.


Food, water and supplies. Mass budget: 11.5t

Re: Air. Shelter. Water. Food.

Mars is as far off the grid as one can be so maybe we need some lessons from I'm Still Surprised by the Benefits and Struggles of Life Off-Grid

We have also seen that a crew of just 22 is a sustainable level for a long-term mission.
