Landing on Mars is not a straightforward process.
To get there you’ll need to put down a rover, set it up on the surface, and make sure the terrain is in good condition before you can set your eyes on the planet’s surface.
For those who have more experience with the craft, this is a guide to the basics of landing a rover.
Choose a suitable landing site for your rover 1.1 What you need to know 1.2 When you can land a rover on Mars 1.3 How to set up a landing site 1.4 What you can expect when you land on Mars This article is part of a BBC News Weekend series called ‘Landing on Mars’.
Here are some of the more common landing requirements: Your rover must be sturdy enough to withstand the impact of the landing, and it must be able to walk away from the impact zone safely.
For Mars, this means it needs to be able stand up straight after impact.
It should be able walk to a safe distance before it is knocked off the surface by the impact.
A landing site must be large enough to support the rover.
This means that it needs sufficient room to support a rover without it tipping over or tipping over into a crater.
Your rover can be as big as 12.8m long and 4.5m wide.
It will need to be built up and out of steel, with the roof and base panels, and the landing gear and parachutes needed to land the rover in the appropriate landing zone.
The landing gear can be attached to the top of the rover and the parachutes can be strapped to the side of the parachute.
Select a suitable location to land Your rover will need a suitable site to land on the Martian surface.
The best landing sites are those that are close to a river, lake or mountain, which allows for easy access to water.
The more likely landing sites include the tops of hills, in the foothills, or at the edge of the mountain range.
In order to have a safe landing, you’ll also need a safe route for the rover to go through.
The rover will have to be stable and in good shape before it can be safely set down on the landing site.
If the landing zone is in bad shape, it can’t be used again until it is repaired.
Choose your landing site You can choose one of two landing sites depending on your specific requirements.
You can select the same landing site twice, and have your rover land on both.
If you’re looking to land at a specific location, you can select both landing sites and have the rover land at each one.
For example, if you’re interested in a site on the north-eastern side of a valley, you could select the site on your south-eighth landing site, and your rover would land there.
If, however, you’re wanting to land somewhere else on Mars, you would select the area on your north-western landing site and your Rover would land at that site.
Prepare the landing point 1.
First of all, your rover will be loaded into a vehicle with wheels and wheelsets, and will need at least three wheels.
These wheels will be the main components of your rover’s body.
You need to make sure you have enough wheels to enable it to travel to and from the landing area.
To do this, you need a way to drive the rover on.
The wheels will also need to have enough mass to allow it to safely lift itself into the desired landing area, which will need the right size wheels and the right amount of mass to get it up and down.
2: Select your landing gear 3.
You’ll need two sets of wheels to complete the set-up of your landing equipment.
The first set of wheels will help your rover to move slowly and easily on the Mars surface.
These will be called the control wheels and they will be placed on the front of your vehicle and at the back.
The second set of control wheels will make the rover move with more speed and will also help to lift the rover up into the landing spot.
The control wheels are a pair of wheels with a spring on the top, and a ring at the bottom.
These spring and ring will work to allow your rover (and you) to control how quickly it will move, which is important when it comes to driving around on the Moon.
The wheel sets on the left and right sides of your car will also work to help the rover stay balanced while it’s moving, and can be used to steer it. 4: Make sure you’ve got enough room on your landing spot To make sure that you can safely land on your target landing site when you arrive, you will need three things: a landing pad (this will be a concrete slab that will have holes drilled in it so that it can stand up upright when it lands) a small landing site (this is where
