It is the year
2025. Terris T. Rialle, Director of Interplanetary Travel, has just
hired your team as travel guides. Interplanetary travel has become
very popular and you see a great future in this business. You want to provide
travelers with the best information you can and plan to become a leader
in your field.
You will provide travel guidance to interplanetary travelers. You must ensure that travelers know enough about Mars to plan well, to know the best spots to visit, and at what time of year to visit them. You must become experts on Mars, so you can knowledgeably compare and contrast at most three possible resort locations on Mars to your customers. You need to know how to help travelers have safe and pleasant journeys and provide information they will need about Mars, about what they should take (raincoats, pressure suits, gravity shoes, sunglasses, sun screen, beach towels, snow skis, etc.) and what activities to expect (i.e. spelunking, rock climbing, snow skiing, swimming, sand sailing, etc.). You could create a book, brochure, slide presentation, mural , TV commercial, an infomercial, or an interactive web site, that will provide this and other information for your clients traveling to Mars.
few years ago SpaceQuest launched several interplanetary probes. At this
time there are rovers in operation on the Martian surface. These will be
important resources for this Quest. In addition, you have special access
to NASA data collected during their recent missions to Mars. Your challenge
is to make the best use of the SpaceQuest probes, Internet resources, and
NASA data to create a Martian Travel Guide. If you succeed in this
Mission, Terris. T. Rialle has assured you of a bright future creating
interplanetary, interstellar, and intergalactic travel guides.
You've finished and presented the Martian Travel Guide with your recommendations to Dr. Terris T. Rialle. What recommendations do you make to travelers to Mars? What have you learned to see in pictures and images?
