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


While we are putting stations on the moon and in orbit in this fast changing world of growing scientific knowledge we must look past the step we are currently on to the steps beyond. The next step after the moon and the earths orbit will be another planet and the planet most similar to our own earth is Mars. Mars has water frozen on the planets surface and days similar in length to our 24 hour day. There are many factors in building a station on a different planet. All things must be considered including the atmosphere, the weather, Temperature, soil and what region to build. Then what material to build the station out of and how to insulate it. Also where to build and how to protect the buildings from the weather.
