Space

  • Speculate what materials Martian could trade with Earth.

  • Build a model of a manned vehicle that would be used to explore the surface of the Moon or Mars.

  • Invent a space suit to be used on the Moon or Mars that is equipped with a solar sail.  Show how the sail could extend manned surface excursions by providing additional electrical energy.

  • Devise a way a space suit on Mars could generate its own breathable air, using Marian air.

  • Build a system that demonstrates how breathable air could be made on Mars by separating carbon diode from the air and increasing the level of oxygen.

  • Demonstrate how a water column could be used to form an air lock on Mars.

  • Build a working model of a revolving door air lock for a Martian habitat.

  • Demonstrate ways to extract water and oxygen from simulated Martian rocks and sand.

  • Illustrate how liquid water could be extracted from ice buried deep under the ground on Mars.

  • Speculate on some of the social problems that might emerge on a long space mission.  Define ways they can be dealt with.

  • Illustrate how Mars could be “terraformed” to an Earth like climate.

  • Illustrate the construction of greenhouses on the Moon or Mars.   Show how plants and fish might be grown in such structures.

  • Illustrate how the Martian moon Phobos could be used as a supply depot for Mars missions.

  • Demonstrate a method to measure the mass of an object in space.

  • Demonstrate how an ion propulsion system works.

  • Illustrate how a mass driver propulsion system works. Perhaps build a small working model.

  • Explain how a mass driver on the Moon could be used to send manufactured materials into Moon orbit.  Later the materials might be used as supplies for a manned mission to Mars.
  • Illustrate how we might communicate with worlds light years away.

  • Build a system showing how artificial gravity could be produced for long space flights. Perhaps two sections of a spacecraft could be linked with a strong rope and spun.

  • Build a working model of a photovoltaic solar electrical power plant for Mars settlements.

  • Illustrate underground shelters that are designed for Martian settlements.

  • Demonstrate how certain nickel-iron rocks found on Mars might be processed toproduce steel or made into ribbons to carry electricity

  • Illustrate how certain carbonate compound laden rocks on Mars might be processed to form Portland cement with the aid of concentrated sunlight.

  • Demonstrate how some sand on Mars might be turned into glass for a variety ofuses.

  • Illustrate how an outpost on the moon might be developed to provide air, food and fuel for long manned space missions to the outer planets.

  • Demonstrate how optical laser based communications systems might be better than radio techniques for deep space missions.
