Mars

Professor John Deaton, Director of Research and Chair, Human Factors program, College of Aeronautics, spent 2 weeks at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), a simulated Mars habitat. He collected data focusing on human factors issues and group dynamics, including how well people perform in stressful environments such as this. A Mars diorama is set up next to the first-floor stairway and houses an Atlas V rocket model on loan from NASA, Delaware North, Lockheed-Martin, and Boeing corporations.

Rocket Models

 

  • Delta II - On a variant of the Delta II launch vehicle, the Mars Climate Orbitor and Mars Polar Lander were launched. Both missions were designed to gather Martian climate data, but encountered problems as the satellites approached the planet's surface.
  • Atlas V - The Atlas V was responsible for the launch of Mars Rover Curiosity, which investigates the potential for long-term habitability on Mars. It is mapping Martian climate and geology, and seeks signs of past life on Mars. 

The Florida Tech community thanks NASA, Delaware North, Lockheed-Martin, and Boeing for the generous loans of these Delta II and Atlas V model rockets. Both launch vehicles have played, and continue to play, an important role in the future of manned missions to Mars.
