Introduction

Task

Process

  • You and your team have been selected to man a mission to a planet in our solar system. Your job is to gather information about the planet and bring it back to earth so that we can make plans to develop a colony or space station on or around the planet. On your team there is a graphic designer, a Captain, an architect, and an Information technologist. Each of you will have a specific task to complete.

Introduction

Task

Process

  • The captain of the flight is responsible for coming up with the best flight plan to the planet. This plan should be type written and professional looking. You have plenty to research so look further to see what information needs to be on your flight plan. You will also need to draw and label a picture of the space craft that will be able to make the journey.
  • The Graphic Designer is to create a brochure to attract future colonists to the planet. It should be created on a computer with plenty of graphics. After all, if it looks boring, people won’t want to go!!! In a way, this is should be an advertisement for the job of a lifetime!!!
  • The architect will be making a large poster or model depicting what the space station or colony will look like. He or she will need to choose the best location for the settlement, and make adaptations so that humans can live and thrive there.
  • The information technologist will make a slide show to show the conditions and history of the planet. It will be at least 10 slides and be both informative and creative. We will use this slide show to show to potential financial contributors whose support is necessary to fund this mission.

Your flight plan and drawing needs to answer the following questions:

How far away is your planet? How long will it take you to get there and back? How big of a crew will you need to man this mission? What supplies will you and the crew need for this voyage? Consult with the architect to determine what places on the planet you will want to observe for possible settlement sites. How much money will this mission cost? What route will you take to reach this planet? What will your spaceship look like? What features will the spaceship need in order to transport you safely to and from the planet? What kind of fuel will you need?

Your brochure should answer the following questions for prospective employees:

How many colonists will be needed? How long will they be there for? Consult with the architect and captain to find a place to live that will appeal to the colonists. What kind of things will be available for entertainment and leisure time? What physical activities will be required of the colonists? What kinds of people are you looking for to populate the colony? What features of the planet will be most appealing to people? What kinds of jobs will the colony need to thrive? What kind of benefits await the people willing to take this job? Do you want just professionals, or would you like families? What will be available to ensure safety to the colonists?

Your Drawing and plans for the settlement should answer the following questions:

Where will the safest sight for the settlement be? Come up with 3 possible spots on or near you planet where conditions would be best for the survival of the colony. What kind of material can you find on the planet to aid with construction? What supplies would need to be taken for construction of the settlement or space station. How long would it take to build the station? What features will the station need to protect it from harmful elements? Does the planet have moons that may be more suitable to colonize than the planet itself? How can we make the environment more suitable for humans? What would have to exist for human habitation?

The following information should be included in your PowerPoint presentation:

How was the planet discovered? How did the planet get it’s name? Who was it named after? What is the atmosphere like? What is it composed of? What materials make up the solid part of the planet? What is the surface of the planet like? Is there any kind of weather? What, if any, geological processes are occurring? What geological features can be found on this planet (if any)? How do scientists think they were formed? What (if any) moons exist in orbit around the planet? What are the moons like? Is it possible that one of the moons could be inhabited? What do we need in order to make an environment on the planet suitable for humans? Could it ever be possible for humans to live on or near the planet?
