Can astronauts reach Mars by 2035? Absolutely, says Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to walk on the moon. Celebrated astronaut, brilliant engineer, bestselling author, Aldrin believes it is not only possibly but vital to America’s future to keep pushing the space frontier outward for the sake of exploration, science, development, commerce, and security. What we need, he argues, is a commitment by the U.S. President as rousing as JFK’s promise to reach the moon by the end of the 1960s—an audacious, inspiring goal-and a unified vision for space exploration. In Mission to Mars, Aldrin plots that trajectory, stressing that American-led space exploration is essential to the economic and technological vitality of the nation and the world. Do you dare to dream big? Then join Aldrin in his thought provoking and inspiring Mission to Mars.

Nuclear power is the next enabling technology in manned exploration of the solar system. Scientists and engineers continue to design multi-megawatt power systems, yet no power system in the 100 kilowatt, electric range has been built and flown. Technology demonstrations and studies leave a myriad of systems from which decision makers can choose to build the first manned space nuclear power system. While many subsystem engineers plan in parallel, an accurate specific mass value becomes an important design specification, which is still uncertain. This thesis goes through the design features of the manned Mars mission, its power system requirements, their design attributes as well as their design faults. Specific mass is calculated statistically as well as empirically for 1-15MWe systems. Conclusions are presented on each subsystem as well as recommendations for decision makers on where development needs to begin today in order for the mission to launch in the future.

A manned mission to Mars is faced with challenges and topics that may not be obvious but of great importance and challenging for such a mission. This is the first book that collects contributions from scholars in various fields, from astronomy and medicine, to theology and philosophy, addressing such topics.

The primary audience for this book are all researchers interested in the human factor in a space mission including philosophers, social scientists, astronomers, and others. This volume will also be of high interest for a much wider audience like the non-academic world, or for students.

To boldly go where no human has gone before... A human mission to Mars will most likely be a one way journey into the unknown, and the first step to the human colonization of the cosmos. Why a one way mission? Who should go? What might they discover about the Red Planet, and themselves? These twenty chapters written by the top scientists in the world and two astronauts who walked on the moon, and edited by famed cosmologist, Paul Davies, and astrobiologiest, Dirk Schulze-Makuch, provide a veritable road map to the Red Planet. What would it be like to be part of a long duration space mission to Mars? How might it feel to watch the receding Earth slowly growing smaller in the blackness of night? Can humans have sex in space? Should women be part of the mission? Can babies be born on Mars? The answer is, yes; if we wish to colonize the cosmos. But a human mission to Mars would be incredibly expensive, how could the mission be funded? As detailed in the chapter Marketing Mars, by selling TV-broadcasting, advertising, sponsorship, merchandising, and naming rights to corporations who would pay billions for the privilege. But who would want to boldly go, and why? Over 1,000 men and women have volunteered for a one way mission and many tell us why in their own words. But wouldn't this be a suicide mission? Could a colony be established? Could they grow their own food? How would they survive? The answers are provided by a veritable who's who of the top experts in the world. And what would it be like to live on Mars? What dangers would they face? Learn first hand, in the final, visionary chapter about about life in a Martian colony, and the adventures of a young woman, Aurora, who is born on Mars. Exploration, discovery, and journeys into the unknown are part of the human spirit. Colonizing the cosmos is our destiny. The Greatest Adventure in the History of Humanity awaits us. Onward to Mars!
