I know that the trip will take a very long time and they will be on Mars a very long time. I also know that very advanced technology is required to send a rocket ship to the planet.
The trip will take approximately two and a half years long, wow!
Some supplies that they would need to take to survive are food, water, cloths, and things to take samples of the rock on mars.
Some of the risks are food, and NASA is wondering how the astronauts will get back to earth when they end up landing in mars.
Some things that I would bring with me to mars would be basic survival tools like food, water, something fun to do, and a space suit obviously.
Some of the goals when they got on mars was to collect samples and try to survive as long as they can, while of course having a back up plan of some sort. What they would take with them exactly is unsure and one of the few unanswered questions that the scientists still argue over. One scientist related it back to the early pioneers and how they brought barely anything with them when they traveled.
Something that really surprised me during this activity was how much people that were poor. There were tons of people that were poor and a lot of people that were rich. 10% people have 85% of all the money in the village, so in real life 6.3 billion people share that 15% left over from the people who are rich. The poorest 10 people in the village have less than 2$ a day! To me that is crazy and super unfair to the people who can afford proper food and shelter. Then the people who are more wealthy get plenty of food and have better shelter. Something that upset me was that the money isn't very balanced at all and the people who have so much money that they don't know what to do with should donate to a charity at least. There's so much people that don't have any money and could really use at least some money, otherwise their life is at risk. Something that made me want to improve a situation is that not enough people are getting the right education. There were lots of people who needed education and didn't get it, even some people that were adults! The kids that aren't getting education won't be ready for life later on and you also pretty much need proper education to do just about anything, including jobs. Also there is only one teacher for all of the kids that are attending school!
