EXPLORATION IS IN OUR BLOOD. WE SEEK NEW PLACES, NEW DIRECTIONS, NEW LANDS, NEW SEAS, NEW SPACES, NEW PLANETS. WE DREAM ABOUT VOYAGES THROUGH STARS, WE WANT TO BREAK NEW BOUNDARIES, GRASP THE EDGES OF UNIVERSE. FOR HUMANITY, STEPPING ON NEW GROUNDS IS ESSENTIAL SINCE OUR ANCESTORS CLIMBED DOWN FROM THE TREES AND POPULATED THE WORLD. WE MANAGED TO GET TO ALMOST EVERY CORNER OF OUR WORLD, WE MANAGED TO SET A FOOT ON CELESTIAL BODY AND WE CONSTANTLY PUSH FORWARD FRONTIER IN SPACE EXPLORATION. WE WANT TO GET TO MARS. BUT WE NEED A PLAN AND PURPOSE.

ON EARTH LIFE STARTED IN OCEANS AND SEAS, PROTECTED BY WATER, SO ONE DAY IT COULD REACH THE STARS.
ON MARS WE MUST DO THE SAME.

OUR PROPOSITION FOR A MARS COLONY MASTER PLAN IS COMPOSED OF TWO ELEMENTS: UNDERWATER CITY AND ORBITAL RING STATION CONNECTED TOGETHER BY SPACE ELEVATOR.

ON THE SURFACE, WE EXPAND GREAT IDEA OF USING ICE AS BUILDING MATERIAL TO CREATE ICE DOME AS A PROTECTIVE SEAL FOR HABITAT. LAYER OF ICE WOULD PROTECT HABITAT FROM DANGEROUS COSMIC RAYS, LOW ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE AND WILD DUST STORMS. MANY CRATERS OF MARS POSSESSES FROZEN WATER DEPOSITS. MOST OF THEM ARE LOCATED NEAR NORTH AND SOUTH POLES, BUT GAMMA RAY SCANS INDICATED THAT THERE ARE TWO SPOTS NEAR THE EQUATOR WHICH SHOULD CONSIST ENOUGH MATERIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT.

CITY IS COMPLETELY SUBMERGED IN WATER, CREATING PRESSURE AND LIVING ENVIRONMENT FOR ANIMALS AND PLANTS. WITH SURROUNDINGS ILLUMINATED BY SUNLIGHT, CHANNELED THROUGH OPTICAL FIBERS, HUMANS CAN SAFELY LIVE WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT TEMPERATURE CHANGES OR OXYGEN ACCESSIBILITY.

SPACE STATION IS BASED ON RING MODEL WHICH USES CENTRIFUGAL FORCE TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL GRAVITY. IT ALLOWS COLONIST TO SPEND TIME IN NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND HELP THEIR BODY FUNCTION BETTER. WITH THE RADIUS OF 2000M, EARTH-LIKE GRAVITY IS CREATED WITH LINEAR SPEED 40KM/H OF OUTER RING. PRIMARY FUNCTION OF THE STATION IS CARGO HUB AND PROCESSING FOR INTERSTELLAR MINING AND EXCAVATION, BUT IT ALSO WORKS AS TOURIST ATTRACTION AND HEALTH CENTRE FOR SURFACE INHABITANTS. ALSO NEW SYSTEM OF DOCKING IS USED IN CONTRAST TO TRADITIONAL DOCKING IN CENTRE OF THE STATION. NOW LINEAR DOCKING CAN PROVIDE SIMULTANEOUS DOCKING FOR MANY VESSELS AND SEPARATE ENTRY AND ESCAPE FROM STATION.

CREATING THIS MASTER PLAN WE WANTED TO PRESENT THAT IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO BE WILLING TO COLONIZE OTHER PLANET ON SUCH MASSIVE SCALE, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING MORE THAN DESIRE TO EXPLORE AND RESEARCH. SUCH CONDITIONS LIKE SAFETY OR WEALTH MUST BE PROVIDED. USING MARS AS COMMERCE HUB FOR INTERSTELLAR ENTERPRISES AND WATER FOR LIVING ENVIRONMENT WE LOOK BACK FIRST PEOPLE WHO SETTLED DOWN NEAR RIVERS AND SEAS, WHERE USING LOCAL RESOURCES AND TRADE BETWEEN SETTLEMENTS BECAME FOUNDATION FOR OUR CIVILIZATION.
