by Joseph Guarascio, Eldorado High Sch, Albuquerque, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space IV


This report is a look into the future; not only that of the solar system, but of humans. With the goal of changing Mars into a living planet, we also have to face the change of the human race. Interplanetary travel is an idea that has existed in the minds of scientists and science fiction writers alike. It is close becoming a reality. With the human race extending its powerful arm to Mars, we are faced with a large expanse of problems. This paper can only begin to disclose the vast array of obstacles perceivable in the near future. With the knowledge I have acquired, I hope to make these obstacles a little clearer to all. Besides, clarifying the problem is the best way to pinpoint a practical solution.
