Notes: The goals of getting to Mars is to get minerals and see if there is water that is up above the ground, get samples, and even get some sample of the sand. Before they sent people they sent a robot that looked and saw if Mars was anything interesting to risk peoples life's for.
1. I know that they sent a shuttle that has nobody in it and is just for sights. I also know that Mars is known for it's red dust and has lot's of moons. That's about all I know though about Mars. In the video they said that if NAsa makes a run to mars when they are overlapping the journey to mars will only take six months.
2. Two and a half years and the planet is 250,000,000 miles away and if they time it right it will only take six moths to get to mars without coming back home.
3.In the video one of the scientist said that they wouldn't bring to much food because the scientist said that like the people who walked across America in the earlier times they would not bring that much food they would make food when they got there and would cut down trees there not before they go.
4.I think that the risks would be that they would run out of air, starve, or run out of water. There also could be living animals like a lion that would rip apart a astronaut that is just in a space suit, even thought that would probably not happen at all.
5. I would want to bring wood, seeds for plants, gallons of water building material, TNT so that I can dig for minerals, maybe some animals or people to get stuff going on on the planet,, a American Flag, and a ton of oxygen so that I could survive on the air.
