  4. 4. Supersonic Retro Propulsion Flight Vehicle Engineering of a Human Mission to Mars

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Hanna Marklund; [2019]
    Keywords : Supersonic retro propulsion; SRP; Mars; Human mission; Inflatable heat shield;

    Abstract : A manned Mars mission will require a substantial increase in landed mass compared to previous robotic missions, beyond the capabilities of current Entry Descent and Landing, EDL, technologies, such as blunt-body aeroshells and supersonic disk-gap-band parachutes. The heaviest payload successfully landed on Mars to date is the Mars Science Laboratory which delivered the Curiosity rover with an approximate mass of 900 kg. READ MORE
