Mission to Mars: A Space Exploration CONTEST
You guessed it. A contest to see which group of ATSers can best reenact, and hopefully improve (not that that would be any real feat), the movie Mission to Mars!
No, not really... Sorry to disappoint! On a serious note though, the purpose of this contest is short and simple. Design, from the ground up, a mission to Mars. I'd suggest groups of people working together, though lone engineers may fare just as well.
The purpose? To see who, either by themselves or in a team, can design the best mission to Mars.
The budget? Unlimited.
The technology? Unlimited! (Though stone age technology may be a bit hard to use, and is only recommended for the advanced engineer. )
The crew size? Four to twenty, though more than twenty is allowed. (I'll explain later)
Is there a time limit for the mission? No!
How comprehensive does this have to be? The more the better!
