What The challenges about living on Mars

        I am learning about Mars and about the challenges of living on Mars
Need
Challenge
Possible solution
Oxygen
1 percent on Mars
The atmosphere  is 95 percent carbon dioxide
Where a space suit
Nasa has a machine that splits carbon dioxide into monoxide
Water
 A tiny amount flows on Mars’s surface it also doesn’t rain or have rivers and lakes on Mars. the water is ice that is on Mars
You could look for water by drilling in the ground or the other option is to dig up the underground ice and melt it
Food
If settlers brought their own food it would have to last 26 months until the next rocket comes. A obvious solution is to grow plants but there’s no soil and it’s way cold.
A warmer Mars would mean a better chance of life, growing plants and flowing water. Plants could grow without heaps of different equipment.
Shelter
Mars’s atmosphere is thinner than Earth so that means very little air. Without gas pressure  pushing against us, the gas in our organs will swell up and stop our blood flowing.
Any shelter built on mars would need to be pressurized and  have airlocks. The first settlers could live in their landing module or live underground to stay away from radiation.
