There is one mission: Create an airlock that will function in a human colony on Mars.
Your team's airlock will be crucial to providing a safe entryway into any sort of Martian habitat that can sustain an atmosphere for people to breathe.
Airlock: A chamber which acts as the interface between the external environment and a pressurized environment. This chamber is exactly what is required if we want to have livable spaces on Mars. The chamber must raise and lower the pressure on command to facilitate a safe entrance and exit from the Martian Colony.
Each design will be scored in several categories.
The judging panel will consist of a mixture of professionals and academics in relevant industrial fields, as well as any individuals deemed qualified to assess and evaluate designs at UBC Mars Colony’s discretion. Note: To eliminate potential conflicts of interest, UBC Mars Colony will not be participating, as they are hosting the competition.
