I knew our trip back home to Earth was going to be a lot faster, but not nearly as fast as this! Our tragic end to making a living on Mars was sudden, but I know we all worked really hard and I'm pound of everyone. After running out of water, the choice was clear. We had to go home. I was actually very excited that our trip would only take a week. The fact that going from planet to planet was only going to take us that long is incredible! The trip was going smoothy, but quickly turned bad then even worse. We loaded up the ship with important materials, and got ready to use the fuel that we had made on Mars to fly back faster on the ship. We made our final goodbyes, collecting many souvenirs and then got on the rocket.We finally blasted of and began our trip. At first we didn't realize the problem, but then everybody seemed to figure out what was really happening. We were going so fast...and everything just fell apart. We tried to find some way to slowdown, but turning the ships engine around didn't seem to help. I wasn't sure if we weren't even able to do it, or it just didn't work. Everyone was tense and really worried. Many of us believed this was the end, but I just couldn't get myself to think that. All I could do was panick. I was definatly not in the mood for a crash landing in the middle of no where. Some how we found are self testing one of Einstein's theorys. If you were to travel faster than the speed of light you would go back in time. From all I know, we definatly did. All the way back to the year of 1848!!! We landed in only about 10 minutes, and boarded of the ship. When we got in contact with NASA we found out that it must be true. They found out are coordinates, but we were nowhere near where they had said. And from our prespective we were in the middle of a desert of some sort. Buffallos were the only life we could see, untill we ran into some interesting people that told us the date. Whatever happens next will be a big adventure that I hope will bring us back to my old life with my family, that I'm worried sick I will never ever see again.
Literally I'm am acting like there's no tomorrow, or at least anouther few weeks in my life. Actually there is a likely chance. We are running out of water! I never thought a day like this would ever come. I can't believe it's happening, but at the same time I know that are water supply is getting smaller and smaller has I type. Back home in Rio, Brazil we took water for granted. The warm weather there was very common, so every house hold would definitely have a full supply of fresh water. Although this trip as been so wonderful; the people I have meet, things I have accomplished, languages I have learned, all on top of being on a whole other planet, we have definatly are close to have taken a bad turn for the worst. l would be heart broken if this mission came to a tragic end. We all have worked so hard to make a living on Mars and we have come a long way from when we first started to even think of going to Mars.
Me and my fellow partner have come up with a way that we might be able to add a percent of the water that we need to our supply. In my committee, Sefu Wellington and I have a pretty genral idea. We were thinking of building some sort of machine that takes the humidity out of the air and then turns it into water. It seems risky, but worth a try. The materials that we need could be very scarce and the amount of time we have is very limited.
I am relying on others and myself on complete success and survival. I hope it turns out well.
I have felt alive ever since our space ship took foot off Earth. I'm am so excited to have finally lifted of! So far I have meet up with the builder and carpenter. We put our minds together and figured out many ways to create shelter on Mars. I also talked with the scientist about the weather and tried to find ways to improve my designs. I'm so thankful for all the advise and consideration people have provided during our long journey. Their cultures and backgrounds really interested me to learn even more. I have actually discovered people from were I am from, Brazil. I also learned much more about Mars and its specific characteristics. I surely know this will help a lot on Mars. All at once I still can't believe that i actually get to go to Mars were no one has ever set foot. This is such a big honor and I am overjoyed to be apart of this great space project.
I love spending time with everybody on board. We play games and share jokes, but at the same time we all are learning a lot about each other. I'm glad that the physiologist doesn't have to worry much. :) We get along very well. I look foreword to finding out what kind of delicious cuisines the chef has to offer. Especially because shes from Italy! Overall I am very happy that i will be going to Mars. My one and only regret is leaving my family, but I know they will for sure look foreword to seeing me on the Skype telling them all about my discoveries and accomplishments. I can't wait to finally land on Mars!
When I was a young student, I always dreamed of starting a new town based on my archaeological designs. I always thought that it would be amazing for a new unique settlement to be created by me. Though, I never thought it would be anywhere on the lines of space.
I'm so excited to see the new enviroment and learn lots more about Mars, yet I can't get my mind of leaving my family and my really close friends. Even though I will be there for quite a long time I know that it is totally worth it. I can't wait to skype with my family and friends and tell them all about my adventures on space. They will surely miss me to, but I know that either way they will be very pround of me.
I am so happy that I will be able to work along side with the carpenter/builder to create shelter for the rest of our colony. I'm also very excited to meet our president and peacemaker aswell as the scientist. In some of my free time I hope that I will be able to get a close look at some of the scientists discoveries. This might teach me more about how I shall design the buildings.
I want to be apart of this important space project because I will be a big help at our chance at surviving on Mars. I am very good at working with large groups of people and I also speak a number of languges such as portuguese, spanich, and english.
