Dhivyashree's MCSS- mars colonization surveillance satelite
Grade 6th,Indian School Sohar,Oman.

(MCSS) Mars Colonization Surveillance Satellite, it is made of strong aluminum, and also contains some instruments. This is a useful satellite, before colonizing, while colonizing and after colonization. Let us see how it is useful before, while and after colonization. It’s a mission of two and a half years. This satellite is a polar type. It could cover 1/3 of mars. Before colonization. It can find a perfect location for our colonization by checking…The atmosphere by the moisture analyzer. The moisture analyzer also checks the presence of water on mars.

The amount of methane in the atmosphere.The day to day atmosphere temperature through the methane sensor.While colonization the high resolution camera gives us the detailed picture and recording of the progress on mars, also send the information to the ground station about the materials and data.After colonization The satellite while send us a picture about the colonization and settlements. Then it will send the daily weather report to the ground station on mars and earth. Parts and functions of MCSS.

  • Antenna
  • High resolution camera
  • Solar panels
  • Battery
  • Reaction wheels
  • Computer fed system
  • Methane sensor
  • Infrared camera
  • Moisture analyzer
  • Thermal insulation
  • Earth sensor
  • Air chemical analyzer
  • Moisture analyzer- it research’s the Martian cloud
  • Antenna- it is a communication part which collects the information from the instruments and
  • sends the data to the ground station.
  • High resolution camera- it takes pictures and videos.
  • Solar panels- it extracts electricity from the sun.
  • Battery- it takes the energy from the solar panels and stores it for later use.
  • Reaction wheels –they are used for the altitude control of the satellite. It uses the solar energy
  • stored by the battery.
  • Computer fed system- it is the most important part of the satellite. It is the brain of the satellite,
  • controls all the parts and stores the data for emergencies.
  • Methane sensor- it is an instrument that checks the amount of methane in the atmosphere.
  • Infrared camera- this instrument helps us to find the temperature and gives a weather report.
  • Thermal insulation- it keeps passing the fluid to maintain the temperature of the satellite
  • structure.
  • Earth sensor- it helps the antenna to turn in such way that it can send and receive information
  • to the earth, also helps the dish to go to its original position.
  • Air chemical analyzer-it checks the atmosphere.

Launch to deployment
The rocket for this mission will have five serial stages and six parallel boosters. The serial stages will have liquid engines and the three boosters will have solid and other three have hybrid. The boosters will start burning. After it reaches halfway the boosters will detach and step by step the rocket's serial stages will separate, then the capsule will reach near mars, MCSS pops out and adjusts the altitude by the reaction wheels. Work procedure before colonizing MCSS. Work procedure of MCSS before colonizing. The MCSS starts searching for a location. Its camera may take picture of the good location and send it to the ground station on the earth. Then the moisture analyzer and the methane sensor research the atmosphere of each location. The infrared camera takes the information about the daily temperature.

Work procedure while colonizing MCSS
It gives the information from the rover. Also checks the temperature and atmosphere, gives the details to the astronauts working on mars, surveys the work and sends it to the earth.

Work procedure after colonization of MCSS.
Now the satellite will act as a normal satellite giving weather reports to the ground station of Mars and earth. It will receive information from the earth and send to the ground station of mars, or from mars to earth.

Rocket part
This is a five tandem staged and six parallel staged rocket. We have this satellite inside a capsule. The fifth tandem stage is the main and it has strong nuclear boosters. It also has a facility of deploying the satellite very safely after reaching the orbit, the capsule pops out and another capsule with a cold gas thruster which would adjust the direction and opens to deploy the satellite.
