Mars Space Elevator

This is the plan and implementation from the team IQ Robots (students in Robotics Club) for the “2018 PanHellenic Robotics Competition: Living on Mars”.

Mining in Mars

  • There are strong evidence that Mars has great quantities of useful ore like Aluminum, Magnesium, Titanium, Chromium, Gold etc.
  • Some scientists believe that we could create mines on Mars.
  • In order to export ore from Mars mines in a sustainable way we could build a space elevator to transfer the ore outside the Mars atmosphere.

Students proposal

  • An automate vehicle to transfer ore from the mines to the elevator (Initial design)
  • An automated space elevator to transfer ore outside the Mars atmosphere to docking platforms. (Initial design)
