"Human Spaceflight: From Mars to the Stars", By Louis Friedman. Tucson, Arizona: University of Arizona Press, 2015

On Martian Soil
Discussions are ongoing about how and when to build human settlements on other worlds. Many scientific discussions have focused on settlements on Mars, and how the initial colonists would...

From Pikes Peak to Mars
A graywater (sink and shower wastewater) reuse system is now being designed to serve a visitors' center and a nearby laboratory atop Pikes Peak, Colorado. If the Pikes Peak...

From Antarctica to Mars

Public Beach or Private Backyard: A Case Study of Del Mar Beach and How the Sand was Divided Up

Simulation and Visualization of Martian Rover

Studies in Guidance, Navigation and Control for an Articulated-Body Mars Rover Testbed

Is It Possible to Colonize Mars?
Is it possible to colonize the planet Mars? A planet that is believed to be the most clement planet in the solar system, next to Earth. Despite the fact that it is a very clement planet,...

A Space Station of Mars
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...

Habitat Configuration Evaluation Criteria for Moon/Mars
The purpose of this paper is to identify the methodology, evaluation criteria, criteria definitions for evaluating surface habitat configuration concepts for the Moon and Mars. The main...

A Generic Inflatable Structure for a Lunar/Martian Base
The first steps in the human expansion into space, which inevitably will occur during the next century, consist of the establishment of a human-tended base on the Moon followed by human...

Carbon Formation Theory for Space Oxygen Processes
Production of oxygen from the Martian atmosphere or lunar soil and the recovery of oxygen in manned space environments may include carbon formation from CO as a unit process. Thermodynamic...

Fiber Optic Chemical Sensors on Mars
A fiber optic chemical sensing instrument is described that will measure the reactivity of the martian soil and atmosphere. The self-contained instrument monitors reflectivity changes...

Mars Terraformation Revisited
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...

Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space III
This proceedings, Engineering, Construction and Operations in Space III, consists of over 200 papers presented at Space '92, the...

Experimental Study of Underground Exploration by Auger Boring on a Mars Rover
A system study was conducted on the possibility of exploring Mars using a Mars Rover, and particular efforts were focused on the underground exploration of Mars by an auger boring machine....

Lunar Resource Base
A lunar base that exploits local resources to enhance the productivity of a total SEI scenario is discussed. The goals were to emphasize lunar science and to land men on Mars in 2016 using...

A Mars 1 Watt Vortex Wind Energy Machine
Ever since Viking I and II landed on the surface of Mars in the summer of 1976, man has yearned to go back. But before man sets foot upon the surface of Mars, unmanned missions such as...

A Novel Aerobrake Design for a Mars Lander
A flexible/inflatable aerobrake is proposed for delivering small payloads to Mars as an alternative to propulsion landing. Some results that demonstrate feasibility are presented....

On-Orbit Assembly of Large Space Structures: A Mars Aerobrake Mock-up Study
As design requirements for space structures become larger in dimension, the issues of shipping and assembling these structures in space become more critical. One example of such a structure...
