2. Mission Planning Requirements
The goal of the project is to design both a first and a second phase for a settlement in Mars. Gen 1.5 is the first phase and „includes the basic infrastructure to keep the initial settlers alive, and allow future population growth and support early economic development”. Gen 1.5 will accommodate about 21 settlers, assuming there are no children nor elderly in the population. Gen II is a second phase of the growing settlement with a population around 2000 settlers 15 years after Gen 1.5 is completed. The settlement will continously growing to achieve this final phase.
