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, run out of water, or get killed by the radiation partials that bombard them. There also could be living animals like an alien that would rip apart a astronaut that is just in a space suit, even thought that would probably not happen at all. (Hey? Who knows!)
5. I would want to bring wood, seeds for plants, gallons of water building material, TNT and mining tools so that I can dig for minerals, maybe some animals or people to get stuff going on on the planet, the American Flag, and a ton of oxygen so that I could survive on the air. But, If all else fails, I would plant a LOT of plants to create an atmosphere strong enough to sustain life, leave for 5 years, and come back to try again!
