    Some political and economic challenges affecting Mars Direct involve the budget NASA has for the missions. The cost to send humans to Mars is around $30-50 billion (for private companies it is estimated to be $5billions). NASA’s budget each year is approximately $18billions so the corporation cannot afford to go to Mars alone (as they have to distribute this budget to their other formal missions). They will be looking towards international partnerships and cooperation, unless major disruptive technology comes to the way to make it viable. Therefore, by cooperating with the right international, industrial and intergovernmental partnerships the Mars Direct mission will be possible. Although all organizations taking part in this mission would…

    components that we study. Some examples of what we use to find planets are the Doppler Effect, Astrometry, Transit Photometry, and Direct Imaging. Once we have found a planet we study it as thoroughly as possible with the technology that we have. Formulas are a large part of that study. Without formulas and deductive reasoning based off of our remote observations there would be almost no way…

    Earth, and affects planets in many different ways. Its gravitational pull controls the tides of the ocean, and the Moon’s phases influences our calendar. The Moon takes about 27.3 days to orbit around the Earth. The light that the Moon gives off is only a reflection of the Sun’s light, bouncing off of it. The Moon only reflects about twelve percent of the light that hits it because of its rugged, and dark surface. The position of which the Moon is at while orbiting can also affect the light that…
