Mars Australian Research Station

What would a Mars Base suitable for humans need?

Make a diamond 4- door old and use one for for each section.

1. Air – to keep the air breathable oxygen would need to be added, and carbon dioxide filtered out

2. Water – everything would have to be recycled. Are there any resources on Mars?

3. Food – food from Earth would have to be stored for a long time, or perhaps astronauts could grow their own

4. Fuel (energy sources) – fuel would have to be brought from Earth Earth unless astronauts could use energy sources on Mars.

These internet resources will be helpful.
