ЦитатаThe FoundationA 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Inspiration Mars Foundation believes in the exploration of space as a catalyst for growth, national prosperity, knowledge and global leadership. History has shown that strong nations reap these benefits when they boldly follow a path rooted in curiosity and guided by technological innovation. We created our foundation to inspire Americans to take advantage of this unique window of opportunity to push the envelope of human experience, while reaching out to our youth to expand their views of their own futures in space exploration. Revitalizing interest among our students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is a vital part of our overall mission. Our goal is to provide a platform for unprecedented science, engineering and education opportunities, using state-of-the-art technologies derived from NASA and the International Space Station.NASA and America's space program have been a critical part of inspiring our nation and people everywhere to reach for their dreams and dare to invent their future. The Inspiration Mars Foundation is committed to moving America farther and faster toward our destiny as the world leaders in technical innovation, science, exploration and discovery.The MissionMars presents a challenging, but attainable goal for advancing human experience and knowledge. We plan to launch "A Mission for America" that will use existing space transportation hardware and further drive technology development. It will generate knowledge, experience and momentum for the next great era of space exploration. It will encourage and embolden all Americans to believe again, in doing the hard things that make our nation great, while inspiring the next generation of explorers to pursue their destiny through STEM education and exploration. Now is the time!→Overview→Operations→Technology→Mission Importance→Rewards & Risks→Role with NASAOverviewIn 2018, the planets will literally align, offering a unique orbit opportunity to travel to Mars and back to Earth in only 501 days. Inspiration Mars is committed to sending a two-person American crew - a man and a woman - on an historic journey to fly within 100 miles around the Red Planet and return to Earth safely.The mission's target launch date is Jan. 5, 2018. This exceptionally quick, free-return orbit opportunity occurs twice every 15 years. After 2018, the next opportunity won't occur again until 2031. The mission will provide a platform for unprecedented science, engineering and education opportunities, using state-of-the-art technologies derived from NASA and the International Space Station. It will be financed primarily through philanthropic donations, with some potential support from government sources.OperationsThis mission will be a flyby passing within 100 miles of the surface of Mars. Additional maneuvers will be minor course corrections only, using the gravitational influence of Mars to "slingshot" the vehicle onto a return course to Earth. An inflatable habitat module will be deployed after launch and detached prior to re-entry.TechnologyInvestments in human space exploration technologies and operations by NASA and the space industry are converging in time to make such a mission achievable. The mission is being designed based on proven Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) systems and technologies that are available on the market today. We are currently in discussions with many of the leading U.S. commercial aerospace companies to tap into their existing launch engines and vehicles. Environmental and life support operations will be directly derived from International Space Station technologies, which have proven design, development and operational lessons to draw from.Mission ImportanceThis mission will showcase American innovation at its best, generating knowledge, experience and momentum for the next great era of space exploration. It represents an unprecedented, long-duration research opportunity that will lead to new, cutting-edge discoveries. It validates decades of taxpayer investment in NASA technology and strengthens the United States' position as a leader in exploration. It inspires the next generation of explorers to pursue their destiny through STEM education. This mission is the ultimate demonstration of our collective space exploration capabilities to date.Rewards & RisksThe beauty of this mission is its simplicity. The flyby architecture lowers risk, with no critical propulsive maneuvers, no entry into the Mars atmosphere, and no rendezvous and docking. It also represents the shortest duration roundtrip mission to Mars. The 2018 launch opportunity coincides with the 11-year solar minimum providing the lowest solar radiation exposure. The next launch opportunity for this mission (2031) will not have the advantage of being at the solar minimum.There are risks associated with the mission, as is true of every space exploration mission. But these are exactly the kinds of risks that America should be willing to take in order to advance our knowledge, experience and position as a world leader. We believe the risks and challenges we have uncovered are well within the scope of our collective experience and can be overcome to achieve a safe and successful mission. In fact, studies by experts have found that the technology and systems are viable with proper integration, testing and preparation for flight.We are steadfastly committed to the safety, health and overall well-being of our crew. We will only fly this mission if we are convinced that it is safe to do.Role with NASAOur "Mission for America" aligns perfectly with our nation's emerging space priorities and programs, and will contribute valuable research to accelerate the next generation of systems and their missions. NASA has a strong plan for taking Americans farther into space and is investing wisely in a new human spacecraft and heavy lift launch vehicle - systems our nation needs for our long-term plans beyond low-Earth orbit (LEO). We're using the proven LEO systems and technology that NASA and the industry have created to seize this unique, once-in-a-generation opportunity to create public awareness, enthusiasm and momentum for a long-term commitment and vision for space exploration beyond LEO...all the way to Mars.In addition, the foundation has formed a partnership with NASA via a reimbursable Space Act Agreement between Paragon and the Ames Research Center to conduct thermal protection system and technology testing and evaluation. Foundation officials will also seek to tap into NASA's knowledge, experience and technologies to fine-tune and/or develop some of the more challenging elements of this mission, including environmental controls, radiation protection, and human health and productivity plans.

Марсианский проект первого космического туриста и миллиардера Дэнниса Тито подразумевает отправку экипажа из двух человек на модифицированном корабле Dragon в беспосадочный полет к Марсу: пролетев на близком расстоянии от красной планеты, астронавты вернутся к Земле, говорится в материалах, размещенных на сайте проекта.Неделю назад созданный Тито некоммерческий фонд Inspiration Mars Foundation объявил о планах организовать "путешествие на Марс и обратно" в 2018 году. К настоящему моменту на сайте фонда опубликован текст подготовленного Тито и его коллегами доклада, где описывается схема будущей миссии.Проект основан на использовании орбиты свободного возврата (free return orbit) -- типа траектории, по которой стартовавший с Земли космический корабль возвращается в точку старта только за счет гравитации. Два человека (возможно, это будет супружеская пара) отправятся к Марсу в капсуле Dragon, запущенной с помощью ракеты Falcon Heavy -- и корабль, и ракету разработает компания SpaceX. Корабль будет максимально облегчен: в нем будет только самое необходимое. Астронавты проведут наедине друг с другом 500 дней в спартанских условиях.Старт намечен на 5 января 2018 года, а 20 августа экспедиция достигнет Марса. Корабль пролетит на расстоянии 100 тысяч километров от красной планеты, а затем отправится к Земле, куда прибудет 21 мая 2019 года. При возвращении капсула будет тормозить в атмосфере: она войдет в нее, затем вылетит в космос и снова войдет на скорости 14,2 километра в секунду. Еще ни один космический корабль не совершал посадку на такой высокой скорости, поэтому потребуется особо устойчивый тепловой щит, разработка которого уже заказана Центру имени Эймса НАСА. В отличие от других космических коммерческих проектов, которые появились в последнее время, основатель этого проекта не нуждается в том, чтобы вернуть свои инвестиции. Тито -- миллиардер, и главная цель, по его словам, "вдохновить юношество". Однако чтобы успеть в срок, проект миссии должен быть готов уже через год. http://ria.ru/science/20130227/924992225.html

ЦитатаFirst Space Tourist Sets Sights on MarsUpd ated February 26, 2013, 7:27 p.m. ETBy ANDY PASZTOR A group headed by multimillionaire Dennis Tito, who in 2001 became the first space tourist, on Wednesday outlined plans for a private manned mission to circle Mars.Mr. Tito, who se t a target launch date of January 2018, said a husband and wife astronaut team that hasn't yet been sel ected would fly within 100 miles of Mars before swinging back toward earth in a slingshot type of maneuver for the return trip."When nations boldly follow opportunities, rooted in curiosity and guided by technological innovation, they grow, prosper, learn and lead. And this is what makes a nation great," Mr. Tito said. His trip to the international space station is considered the first example of space tourism.Calling it "A Mission For America," Mr. Tito, said the expedition intends to choose between proven, existing space transportation systems developed by corporate and government entities, though he wasn't specific. One of the innovative aspects of the plan, which also is timed to take advantage of what is projected to be a period of unusually low solar radiation, calls for attaching an inflatable section to the capsule and then releasing it before re-entry.He initially conceived the Mars mission as a roughly $500 million partnership with closely held Space Exploration Technologies Corp., of Hawthorne, Calif., according to people familiar with the matter.ЦитатаAssociated PressDennis Tito, above in Kazakhstan in 2001 after returning from space, is planning to organize a 501-day mission to Mars and back.Mr. Tito co-wrote a detailed technical paper on the subject with 10 corporate and NASA space experts. He may be willing to invest as much as $100 million of his personal fortune, the industry officials said. The group hopes to raise funds to finance the mission.With no U.S. government missions slated to carry astronauts past low-earth orbit until at least the start of the next decade, Mr. Tito and his supporters saw the about 17 month expedition as an opportunity to inspire students and showcase U.S. supremacy in space.The 501-day round-trip flight would pioneer technology to shield humans from strong radiation in deep space; demonstrate they could live and exercise for long durations in cramped quarters; and leapfrog plans by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to send astronauts to an asteroid and eventually to Mars around 2035.The longest any human has stayed in space so far is about 13 months, held by a Russian cosmonaut. The proposed trip would be aided by a trajectory devised by Mr. Tito and his team--based on earlier NASA calculations--that gives the craft extra speed from gravitational forces created by the unusual alignment of the planets.Industry officials said in recent weeks plans to use a heavy-lift rocket and space capsule supplied by SpaceX, imploded.A spokeswoman for SpaceX said the company doesn't have a relationship with Mr. Tito's group, called the Inspiration Mars Foundation.The group's latest concept carries a price tag of at least $1 billion, these officials said. Mr. Tito's group is talking to Boeing Co., BA +2.53% Lockheed Martin Corp. LMT +1.36% and NASA about possible hardware.The proposed voyage comes as NASA and the White House face escalating criticism fr om lawmakers and scientists over what they see as a lack of clearly defined government space goals. NASA hasn't yet picked a specific asteroid for a manned mission, and the agency's plans to get astronauts to Mars are less defined.With shrinking overall budgets and internal NASA divisions about how much financial support to allocate for commercial space ventures, the agency is looking for ways to spark public excitement about deep-space travel.Mr. Tito's concept has been embraced by NASA's leadership, and the proposed Mars voyage is boosted by a formal cooperative agreement with NASA's Ames Research Center in Northern California. Ames scientists are renowned for expertise in heat shields, which is one of the most important elements needed to protect a speeding spacecraft slamming into the earth's atmosphere at the end of a long-distance space voyage.Some space experts have said that any manned Mars mission using existing rockets probably would need to have a capsule dock with some type of booster in orbit. That would provide the additional thrust necessary to put the spacecraft into a trajectory to reach Mars. The gravitational field around Mars would have a slingshot effect on a spacecraft, hurling it back toward earth with additional velocity.Write to Andy Pasztor at email@example.com
