Journey to Mars

Since the 1960s, space agencies around the world have carried out a variety of missions to Mars sending probes, orbiters, landers and rovers to find out as much about the red planet as possible. The next big step is a manned mission to Mars and a number of space agencies are working towards putting humans on the surface of Mars within the next two decades.

The TES challenges ask students to look at three of the key elements required for a successful manned mission to Mars; the voyage there, the descent to the surface, and living on the planet itself.
