Mars minded individuals are listening to current events discussed about Mars.
Radio programs, movies and the Internet keep the planet Mars on our minds daily.
Volunteers who decide to go in the first wave of space travelers must be adaptable
to the confines of spaceships and harsh conditions becoming Mars minded.
Dental care now and into the future should be viewed with preventative practices in mind.
Preventative dental care reduces the risk of emergency dental care.
America has sent several probes to the planet reporting data as they roam the terrain.
One of the topics that interest many of us is the distance to Mars from Earth.
Mars and Earth can be (401 million km) 249 million miles apart during times they are not at optimum alignment.
When these 2 planets are at their closest 33.9 million miles (54.6 million km) is the time you have your launch window.
The distance varies greatly, depending on both planets’ position in their orbits.
That translates to an average distance of 12.5 light minutes.
Transmissios from Mars rovers take an average 4 minutes to 24 minutes depending on Mar’s current distance from Earth.
Land rovers on Mars send and receive electro-magnetic waves at the speed of light.
An electro-magnetic signal can be received from millions of miles away.
The speed of light is roughly 300,000 km/second.
In theory Mars Minded individuals study the alignment of planets and acknowledge when Mars is at its closest
point to the sun and Earth is at its farthest point. Research finds this has never happen in recorded history.
According to NASA a vessel with humans on it would take roughly six months to travel to Mars
and another six months to travel back from Mars.
In addition, astronauts would have to stay 18-20 months on Mars before the planets re-align for a return trip.
In all, the mission would take roughly 2 1/2 years.
Remain Mars minded to understand the passion of the new explorer.
