- Team Composition
Degrees in engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, mathematical sciences, and computer science are essential to become an astronaut. A medical degree is also acceptable when accompanied by completion of an aviation test pilot program. That’s why our team has been chosen with several different backgrounds and knowledge to have diversity in our crew.

- Training and Preparation
We decided to have our members attend the ASTRO camp and the space camp organized by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). In these camps, they will be prepared and informed about the essential courses that must be taken to become astronauts. They will be trained to survive and investigate Mars, answering our questions from part 1.
- Task Distribution
To make the distribution of tasks more effective, we will establish roles and responsibilities since the group is large. This will help facilitate the assigned tasks and increase efficiency.
- Teamwork and Communication
Communication is crucial, even though communication between Earth and space is not in real time. Messages are recorded, but communication within the group must be very positive within what is possible. There needs to be a lot of trust among the group to move forward effectively.
- Physical and Mental Health
To prevent problems such as anxiety, stress, and depression, our astronauts will engage in activities such as playing an instrument, reading a book, and exercising. For their health, astronauts should eat well. Even though they will be consuming canned food, it must contain necessary nutrients. They should aim for a daily intake of about 2,000 calories.
- Coordination with Robots and Autonomous Systems
To have control over the robots, the group of astronauts must work together as a team. Patience will be required to ensure there is no loss of control with any robot. Coordination and cooperation are essential in working effectively with robots and autonomous systems.
