    1. HIGH-RISK TRAVEL
    Space travel is high risk. During the launch, you will be strapped on top of a massive rocket that could explode. During the flight, you could smash into space debris. But a crash landing on Mars is probably the most dangerous event of all. Your risk of a violent or even terrifying death is extremely high.

    2. RADIATION POISONING
    Flying to Mars may take over a year to complete and during that time you will face serious health risksfrom two main types of radiation: cosmic rays and energetic particles from the sun. Both types of radiation can damage DNA and greatly increase your risk of cancer.

    3. RIPPED SUIT

    4. MAINTENANCE PROBLEM
    Over the decades, the machinery and electronics at your colony will experience natural wear and tear. We hope it will be easy to fix, but over many decades things will break down. Do you know how to fix your laptop? Or how about the oxygen system? And what if the airlock jams?

Slide 6

    5. ROVER BREAKDOWN
    If you’re going to Mars for the rest of your life, you may want to explore. At first, you may just walk. But if you get a rover you can explore further. Over many decades, your rover will experience wear and tear and may break down. If it breaks down while you’re exploring, you may be too far from home to walk before your oxygen runs out. That’s a nightmare.
