WANTED: Man and woman, preferably married, for expedition to Mars for 501 days!
[link to in.news.yahoo.com]


CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida - A nonprofit foundation wants to recruit a man and a woman - possibly a married couple - for a bare-bones, 501-day journey to Mars and back that would start in less than five years, project organizers said on Wednesday.
The mission, expected to cost upwards of $1 billion, would be privately financed by donations and sponsorships.
Project founder Dennis Tito, a multimillionaire who in 2001 paid $20 million for a trip to the International Space Station, said he will pay start-up costs for two years to begin development of life-support systems and other critical technologies.
Currently, there are no U.S. human spaceships in operation, but several are under development and expected to be flying by 2017.

That leaves little time to take advantage of a rare planetary alignment that would allow a craft to loop around Mars, coming as close as about 150 miles (241 kilometers) to the planet's surface, before returning to Earth.
The launch window for the mission opens on January 5, 2018. The next opportunity is not until 2031.

The spacecraft will be bare-bones, with about 600 cubic feet (17 cubic meters) of living space available for a two-person crew. Mission planners would like to fly a man and a woman, preferably a married couple who would be compatible during a long period of isolation.
The capsule would be outfitted with a life-support system similar to the one NASA uses on the space station, which recycles air, water, urine and perspiration.
"This is going to be a very austere mission. You don't necessarily have to follow all of NASA's guidelines for air quality and water quality. This is going to be a Lewis and Clark trip to Mars," MacCallum said, referring to the explorers who set out across the uncharted American Northwest in 1803.
If launch occurs on January 5, 2018, the capsule would reach Mars 228 days later, loop around its far side and slingshot back toward Earth.

600 cubic feet is way smaller than 600 sq. feet.
Think a 10-foot by 10-foot room with a 6-foot ceiling.

Rockets suck.

The rocket opened the door to space. Unfortunately, few could pass through that door. The expense was prohibitive. Not only are they enormously expensive, they are also inefficient.
Useful load fraction is the total weight, transport and cargo, divided by the cargo weight. Jet airliners have useful load fractions in the order of 45-55 percent. For space craft this number is less than 1 percent.
Since rocket thrust is so expensive, journeys take a long time. The route a rocket takes is the one that uses the least fuel. If you took a rocket from Earth to Mars you would plan your flight such that by the time the acceleration you added to your rocket is used up, taking you further from the Sun, you would be at your destination. Obviously the position of the planets is critical as well. The lowest fuel consumption dictates a launch window that isn't repeated until the planets are properly positioned again. This is ok for scientific purposes but impractical for commerce.
Most of the load a rocket starts with is fuel and oxidizer. Imagine flying to Mars powering your transport with electricity. The sun is always shining in space. You could sail your ship using sunlight instead of wind. You could use as much fuel as you wanted.
