Abstract:

This paper deals with some possible objectives of a Mars expedition, operational approaches that promise early feasibility, and their technological foundation. It does not deal with specific solutions optimized for minimum objectives, but with ways to obtain a foothold for a scientific team, and to support it continuously, the aim being to achieve increasing self-sufficiency in the later phases of the establishment of a Mars base.
