MARS HABITAT DESIGN CONTEST FROM MARS SOCIETY BANGLADESH

MARS HABITAT DESIGN CONTEST FROM MARS SOCIETY BANGLADESH

‘TEAM STRING THEORY’ from MIST led by Lt Arnob became champion in ‘Mars Habitat Design Contest’ arranged by Mars Society Bangladesh. Out of 52 teams from different varsities, their design was evaluated as the best one. The organizers put forward several challenging situations for humans to survive on Mars. Atmosphere containing 95% carbon dioxide, temperature around -50°C, gravity only 1/ 2.5 th of the Earth, infertile regolith soil etc. make Mars almost uninhabitable. The team suggested all possible solutions to the problems using present technology of NASA and other space organizations such as MOXIE, KRUSTY, pressurized dome, aquaponics etc. ‘String Theory’ designed the whole conceptual Mars Colony and integrated those in-situ technologies. MD Shahnewaz Khan (ME-16) and Mehdy Hassan (IPE-05) were the other members of the team.
