    (URGENT TRANSMISSION!)

    My letter arrived over the weekend....giving me the good news that I have been selected to be among the 800 candidates who will be training for 8 months, at an undisclosed location, for the Mars Motel Colony, to be stationed on the Red Planet. I will be cut off from all contact with the World (this World) and will not be seen around the Forum. Wish me Luck! More to follow......OR NOT!

    Mars Lander

    "As valuable as orbiting missions are for science and exploration, we’ll eventually look to leave the base camp and descend to the surface."

    "The Mars Base Camp surface lander concept is a reusable, single-stage lander capable of descending to the surface from Mars orbit using supersonic retropropulsion. Each surface mission could last two weeks with up to four astronauts, and return to the orbiting Mars Base Camp without surface refueling or leaving assets behind."

    "The lander uses Orion avionics and systems as its command deck and is powered by engines using liquid-hydrogen/liquid-oxygen propellant, both of which will be generated from water."

    Good luck on your trip to Mars, Joe. Don't forget to pack some donuts.
