Practice Problem 1 Postmark Deadline: October 20

Practice Problem 1 topic – Mission to Moon, Mars, and Beyond

A spacecraft in orbit? A biosphere on extraterrestrial ground? Private and governmental organizations are already planning missions to set up research stations or even colonies on the Moon and Mars. Many see opportunities to learn more about our solar system, leading to a better understanding of Earth and ourselves; others question whether such missions are even feasible. One private agency is already seeking volunteers for a Mars mission. Space ventures provide an impetus for advancing knowledge and technologies with applications in space, as well as on Earth. Entrepreneurial and scientific opportunities abound to explore, to mine, and to engineer under distinct conditions. Pioneers will need to plan for a sustainable long-term stay, which will require vast investments of people, money, and other resources.

What challenges await these missions: funding, survival in the challenging physical and psychological conditions, law, government and politics? Will they ever return to Earth or will colonies expand and eventually become new civilizations? Will the missions bring humans together toward a common goal or create a global race to establish competing bases? Is this the next giant leap for humankind?
