The space station is an amazing technological advancement of space exploration. This astronomical facility was shot into the sky with gigantic rockets fueled by the most flammable, combustion inducing fuel that lifts this amazing machine off the earth into the atmosphere and ultimately to the new frontier, Mars. This Space Station is well equipped with accessories and equipment to keep our astronauts alive and well and also keeps them sustained for long periods of time. Space travel takes a long time! The distance from Earth to Mars is 89.991 million miles! A helper robot is there to ensure the work gets done as well and does most of the heavy lifting. There are many tools in the astronauts tool belt including wrenches, computing devices and telecommunication equipment so communication is no issue. The space station is also equipped with high-tech solar panels that give power to the unit by soaking up sun UV rays. Amazing what technology can do. Eventually, the astronauts figure out a way to grow crops on Mars so they can live there in the time of doing their studies.
