Take On Mars Simulator

Hello,

I have almost completed a complete revamp of collecting resources on this Mars Simulator. I like the program in that it seems to be a nice interactive way to learn more about Mars.

I found the resource collection setup was inadequate for my purposes of hardcore gameplay. Although there is an assumptin that the rock/soil collectors can assimilate the nanometer particles into useful building materials at a x10 rate, the proportions and locations of most minerals and elements have been set to relate to the actual resource availability and locations on Mars.

I am close to starting on the actual mission creation using my Mod for the SIM, so feel free to join me and watch my progress on learning about Mars and resource collecting.

I like the SIM very much and feel it it is well worth the money to get a first hand look at what it might be like to live on Mars.

I have setup the resources such that it would take 3 months or less to build the first small pressurized outpost to get the drinking water container in so I can transfer water into the little water packets for the astronaut ! Kind of an odd way of doing things but that is how the SIM is setup ( hardcore way that is ) ! Also the time rendering is set to 1:24 speeded up; otherwise it would take 3 real months to get anywhere !

There is also a 1:60 rate.

I will start out doing Rover missions in the pre-selected landing areas ( watch my previous stream ); I will go over that again in a subsequent stream.

I should be starting on the actual mission soon, and will give a short DEMO on that as well !

Please take a look at

Take On Mars

You can get it on Steam.

Thank you !

What if life isn't on Mars but it's actually in Mars

Just a thought.

Olympus Mons Space Terrains

Hi Everyone!

I am Amy from Master Replicas Group and I thought you might be interested in our newly relesed limited edition Olympus Mons Space Terrain.

Each Space Terrain is an exacting recreation of a specific extra-terrestrial topographic detail. MRG has perfected a process by which we digitally combine NASA LRO or MRO radar-scan data with super-high resolution photos to create an unprecedented level of detail! We then output these files in 3D with a resolution down to 16 microns! Replicas will include: Tycho, Clavius, Copernicus (and other) Lunar craters, and the Martian Olympus Mons and Valles Marineris as well as many others! Each cast-resin terrain is removable from the injection-molded ABS display frame. Each display also features a metal name-plate with QR code that takes the viewer to our website for more technical information about that specific terrain. Approximate overall display dimensions: 12.5 inches H x 11.1 W. Each 10-inch square topographic section is removable from the base and can be hung on any wall with the frame attached or without.

If you are interested, please check out out website at: [link]

Exposed Ice Sheets

Exposed ice at mid-latitudes on Mars. Could be future accessible resource. Layering could reveal detailed climate history of Mars.

aseroids at poles dustorm suppression

I was wondering if asteroids where bombed into the poles could they produce enough water vapour to suppress dust storms

custom made asteroids

I was wondering if ships were made of desirable elements for Mars infrastructure and were the cannibalized upon arrival .Would they need to be ferried by rockets to Mars or could designer asteroids be made to more economically sent to Mars without loosing to much to ablation and impact .

Mars before Earth

I think Mars suported life before earth... because it is further from the sun so it cooled before Earth. Allowing life to start there first. Lasted untill, who knows what mite have happened. Has speculation grows that advanced civilations may have existed here thousands of years before history teaches us...It makes some sense

Sample Return mission


I got thinking about the scientists working on the 2020 rover, your holding a test sample container and thinking, I may be holding this again after it's been on Mars, amazing ! I've always thought that the return spaceship would dock with a space station before eventually returning to earth, or is it set to come directly back to earth ? If it docks with a space station would the space capsule find it's way back to earth ?
