Mars Collapsable Rocket

sending manned missions to mars suggests a tricky counter return to bus astronauts to a supposed base on mars. perhaps sending collapsable rocket parts to the planet that can easily be assembled in a space suit or even the prospect of sending a mech augmentation unit that can lift heavy objects in the martian atmosphere. such parts could assemble a return rocket trip that can cyclically be used to shuttle astronauts or parts to a base on mars.

  1. the prospect of a manned mission on mars poses novel issues with return travel, this post describes a way to resolve this while not being forced to engineer a rocket that both sends and returns astronauts to mars. also, an interesting issue with mars is the “spacemailing” of gas to the planet which may have peculiar flammable properties in the mars methane atmosphere. i suggest one of the upcoming experiments in newer unmanned trips is to attempt to light a match in the martian atmosphere.

  2. a good routine for housing astronauts on mars is to send inflatable compartments that they can live in and spend time privately as a private unit. there may be a way to convert the atmosphere to breathable air with a methane air conditioner unit

  3. plastic corridors can be used to manipulate or transform the layout of the base leading to air-conditioned compartments that operate like a space suit with inflatable cloth and visor windows

  4. of course the prospect of a small-to-medium scale nuclear power component much like the ones used by nuclear-powered submarines may make such a component-based rocket fire proof

  5. a one-man collapsable re-entry ship may make it possible for 1+ personnel to escape a defected craft for re-entry where it can be gathered at large floating in space like wandering stations for emergency that can be harvested by a space-walk and allow for a one-time re-entry into the earth or martian atmosphere by collecting and assembling the parts in high orbit, much like a surf-down in the high altitude atmosphere for the sake of re-entry

  6. maybe you can take a craft to high orbit over mars and use collapsable components to “surf” down to the surface of mars, gliding down safely on attacheable wings, also, the original transporting craft can be left in orbit where it can be re-used like a component of a space station. using a ship to launch from earth and make it to land on the mars surface only to re-use it again to return appears to be an unfeasible engineering feat whereas returning a crew on unmanned, delivered components is more sensible, the rover can in such a manner be returned to earth bringing back precious samples from mars.

  7. a surface launch albeit an engineering stretch may be plausible by recycling the gaseous atmosphere in mars through ventilators at a high rate thus producing an “anti-gravity” liftoff that can take a vessel into high space and beyond

  8. wouldn’t it be helpful to have some kind of emergency vessel in outer space that could operate like an escape pod in case of emergency landing that the spacex craft can navigate to in orbit and connect to it to transfer astronauts safely where they can then glide down to earth or parachute down. i am also interested in this prospect for titan, the moon of saturn which is a large frozen ocean, maybe have to build a return spacecraft that is launched while floating in the water

  9. there has also been mention of sentient ice formations in high orbit. interestingly, the just turn into water when brought under observation

  10. interestingly, pontifficating on the extreme insanity of the dynamics of space, leaving the earth and going in one direction will eventually lead you to the point started from
