For the non-refundable flight to Mars 52 Russians are selected

Dutch company Mars One intends to send the first volunteers to the Red planet by 2023. But our expert explains why it’s not going to happen

Organizers of large-scale colonization of the red planet have previously determined the volunteers who will fly to Mars by 2023

Organizers of large-scale colonization of the red planet have previously determined the volunteers who will fly to Mars by 2023. Dutch company Mars One is counting on that date for $ 6 billion to build a permanent base there.

Just primary have been selected 1058 candidates. Most of them are residents of the U.S. — 297 people. From Russia – 52 volunteers. But by 2015 the project managers will select 24 people who will go to Mars. By the way, the company warns that a return ticket is not provided.

Flight to Mars

Flight to Mars is planned by several countries, who are ready to launch to the red planet manned spacecraft within the next 30 years. However, despite such promising prospects, scholars continue to argue about the feasibility of such a flight.

You should start with the fact that one-way flight will take on a variety of calculations, from 7 to 9 months. Such a long flight is very dangerous as the technical side (increasing the probability of hardware failures) and physiological and also the psychological side. Will the astronauts be so many months in a confined space with very limited contacts? How will it affect the human body for long periods in a weightless condition? How great is the danger of radiation in interplanetary space? All these questions become very relevant in the context of emerging in a not too distant future flight to the red planet.

However, should carefully consider possible consequences and unforeseen circumstances that may confront astronauts involved in such a long expedition. First of all, you should bear in mind that absolutely not possible to interrupt the mission due to any circumstances, or to deliver to Mars new reserves in case of shortage. In this case the crew can only rely on their own strength. Continue reading

Manned mission to Mars

By the end of XX century the mankind will be able to send a manned expedition to the planet Mars. The Soviet Union, the United States and other countries could combine resources to implement joint flight. In 1969 was declared a long-term program of the Soviet Union in the field of manned flights in which was planned the creation of orbital stations and laboratories with departing crews as the primary means of extensive exploration of outer space. They will be the “spaceports in space,” launch pads for flights to other planets. There will be large scientific laboratory for research into space technology and biology, medicine and Geophysics, astronomy and astrophysics.

Academician B. N. Petrov, at that time Chairman of the Council at the USSR Academy of Sciences on international cooperation in the exploration and use of outer space “Intercosmos”, noted that orbital space platforms will carry out the final Assembly of the spacecraft systems to conduct training classes of astronauts, which will be used to space conditions and to participate in the Assembly and testing of interplanetary ships.

In the Soviet Union there is a program capable of deducing in space of the modules of spacecraft and build space stations in earth orbit. Continue reading
