This is the subreddit of the Living Universe Foundation. Our dream is to see humanity take life to the stars.

In NewMars.com (forum) there is a post which is following Mars around the Sun. New Years on Mars occurred on Earth day 2019/03/24. Mars has passed longitude 180 degrees in its stately progression. The calendar is now on Sol 383 or later.

If you are interested, the concept is for a participant to take responsibility for development of a virtual plot on Mars, one kilometer square on the surface, in a community called Sagan City (2018).
Participants will interact with each other to specialize in one or more of the knowledge areas which will be needed to sustain civilized life on Mars.

In addition, tahanson43206 is participating in a membership outreach campaign at NewMars forum. In an effort to build up a virtual business community focused upon Mars, messages are being send to newly registered members, inviting them to participate in the Hacienda topic.

A new branch of the My Hacienda topic is open, in addition to the previously reported Devon Island branch. This new branch considers an implementation of Sagan City (2018) on an island in Norway. This island is inhabited, and international arctic research stations are already encouraged by the government.

In the past week, a variety of topics have been under discussion as usual.

Progress by SpaceX in building prototypes of Starship has been of great interest for some time.

The big news for the report a breakthrough in developing a safe, reliable, cost-effective transport method to deliver people and cargo to the surface of Mars.

Through an extended process, a vision is evolving of a system based on Phobos, which would extend a tether toward Mars just far enough to allow balloon lifted landing vehicles to release and survive the fall into the atmosphere of Mars. The search for the optimum conbination of materials and procedures is very much underway. If anyone who reads this post in The Knowledge forum is interested in participating, the NewMars forum is open for serious contributors.

Update 2020/05/20: Work is proceeding nicely on separate tracks, to explore the potential of Void's Conjecture.

Update 2020/05/25: Work is proceeding nicely on separate tracks, to explore the potential of Void's Conjecture.

In particular, a 3D design for a metal cushion to fit between links of Kevlar thread wound to support many tons of mass is coming along nicely. A visual image should be on display this week.

Meanwhile, a program to compute the requirements for links of a tether chain is coming along. It will provide a total length of kevlar thread that would be required to suspend a tether from Phobos to just above the atmosphere of Mars.

For reference, a single 290 micron diameter Kevlar thread (#92 industry identification) supports in excess of 13 kilogramns.

The bottom most link of the tether will be designed to support 60 metric tons of mass.
