Mars Base 101: how astronauts can get the most out of a 30-day stay on the Red Planet

NASA is evaluating a first human sojourn on the surface of Mars that would last about 30 Earth days.

Scientists and engineers discuss how best to use that month on the Red Planet. Has the Mars explorers plant a flag, simply try to stay alive, do valuable scientific work, or prioritize setting up equipment for the next human Mars landing team? However that epic mission spirals out of control, choice of location will be critical, and bringing selected gear on the first outing will likely set the stage for future human exploration of the Red Planet.
