Captain’s Log Dean
We have landed on Mars. One of my crew members has suffered from space sickness, however he is recovering. At 0800 hours we will be going out to collect rock samples with the Mars Rover 2.0, it’s basically the Moon Rover but made for Mars’ terrain. Yesterday we had one of the insects escape from the greenhouse. Luckily it wasn’t that important because we had hundreds of other insects just like it.
Phew, mission accomplished.
We’re back at base now, packing up to go back to Earth. We’ve spent four or five long days on Mars now, but it was fun.
Speaking of fun, I actually caught that bug escapee last night; it was hiding under the Mars Rover.
Soon tourists will be able to land on Mars because of our mission.
Captain’s log Belinda
It’s the fourth day on Mars, the red planet. We’re searching for other life-forms. We saw some plants and little creatures; it could be insects and think there might be life on Mars. It could be the next planet for humans to live on but the only problem is that we live on oxygen and we still don’t know. Earlier this day Hannah, one of the crew members injured herself on a Martian rock. Then I and Rachel (the other crew member) took Hannah in the space shuttle to give her first aid.
Later we checked the rock because it looked different from the others. When looked closer we saw that it was a fossil.
But why would a fossil be on Mars?! And it’s a bit confusing because no one’s been on Mars before we came and surely I bet no alien came to Earth to take a fossil. So this seems to be very interesting. Wonder what will happen next?
Day 6 Today is our last day on the beautiful but boiling red planet, Mars. We might visit Mars again in 2020 or 21 and now we hope that we get back to Earth safely, taking all the pictures and the stuff we collected.
