Mars Jet Prototype

Recommended Posts

I've been on a bit of a Mars binge lately and this is one of the projects I'm working on.  The technology for this exists today but it is unlikely to develop until the resources on Mars can be processed locally.  The engine is fueled by carbon dioxide and magnesium powder suspended in nitrogen gas.  Once ignited the reaction strips the oxygen molecules from the CO2 leaving only magnesium oxide behind.  Of course, with such a thin atmosphere you're going to need a lot more wing area this this has but let's not get too bogged down in details.
