Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Launch

There is an entire planet that our colonists will want to explore, but the parts of the exploration module are the first places we want to visit. Your colony will need at least one complete Exploration Module in order to be a complete colony.

“We are ready to explore the greatest frontier humans have had in front of them. The unknown of the red planet, waiting for us to visit and understand for the future of “

Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Terra Sirenum

Now that the volcanic region of Olympus Mon and Tharsis Montes have been explored, the colonists are going to turn their attention south. Terra Sirenum is an area of mars with heavy cratering and it once held a large lake. There is great potential for all kinds of different and unexpected science data to be collected and analyzed.

“I feel like I am back in the lack of 10,000 lakes, except, with craters. Amazing!”

Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Tharsis Montes

The Tharsis Montes is an interesting volcanic formation of three volcanoes. The colonists want to explore this region to get an idea of how these volcanoes could be so evenly spaced. What kind of plate tectonic activity too place to make this formation? What about the other volcanic formations in the region that could give deeper clues to a younger Mars

“We have placed sensors at the top of all three volcanoes. We should have readings within the hour. When the stations are up and running, we will make our way down.”

Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Mawrth Vallis

Next on the exploration priority list is the Mawrth Vallis. This region of mars holds particular interest because it is one of the oldest valleys on the red planet. The different ages of rock layers could be a wealth of science data for the colonists. Also, there are clay deposits in this region that could only have formed in the presence of water. The history of Mars is in this valley and the colonists want to go to Mawrth Vallis.

“We found a good clay sample this morning. Preliminary analysis is encouraging and the potential information gathered from this sample are worth being patient and running tests in the Science Module back at home base.”

Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Victoria Crater

Once the largest volcano in the solar system has been explored, the colonists will shift their focus to an area already explored……by a rover. Opportunity, one of the early rovers sent to the red planet, discovered Victoria Crater and was able to perform it’s own science data collecting. Now that humans are there, they can look at the same areas as Opportunity and look around other areas of interest.

“We have been able to supplement the data collected by Opportunity and we now plan to explore a rock formation on the south end of the crater.”

Mars 4:45 The Exploration Module: Olympus Mons

Once the basic needs of the colony are met, the colonists will want to explore the red planet. The Exploration Module will be included specifically to help the colonists get from place to place on Mars to explore. The first place our colonists will explore will be the largest volcano in the solar system, Olympus Mons.

“Its crazy that for such a small planet, we have never felt so small.”

Mars 4:45 The Resource Module: Launch!

When a Resource Module is ready for launch, this is the card that will send the module on its way. When a Mission Director completes a Power Module with this card, they will take the completed unit off the factory floor. During a round, players will need to complete 1 Resource Module.

“This module is the future of colonizing Mars. The building blocks of our Martian history will be created by this module.”
