Mars Base 2050

Dear John,

You have been chosen to start making a settlement on Mars, if you accept, you will have to do a journal everyday that you are there, you will write about activities that you do durning the day, expirences, and how your veiw on life has changed.

Thank you,


” Wow, this is such a huge life experience that I don’t know if I can handle. Hi, my name is John, I am 25 years old and live in Edmonton Alberta, and I had this amazing opportunity to go to Mars and try and make a settlement.”

” It all started on July 15, 2050,  I got the letter that asked me to go to Mars. At first I didn’t want to go, but after a couple of days of thinking I thought that it would be a good experience.”

Day 1

Today all I did was starting to travel up to Mars. It is so cool and I never thought that I would have this experience. I’m so happy that I said yes to doing this because if I said no I feel like I would be very mad at myself. The only thing that’s has really happened is that I saw an a group of aliens. They were flying by as I was heading there. That is the only interesting thing that has happened so far.


Day 2

I am starting to get a bit lonely. I have reached Mars and right now I’m starting to regret coming. I think that I am going to go crazy after the seven day Mars settlement. Today my job is to start building houses. While I was building the house that my family was going to live in if this Mars settlement works. I hope that all my work actually works out because if it doesn’t then all my work doesn’t go to waste.

Day 3

I finished building one house and I am told I have to build three houses while I’m here. Being here has made me feel like I can achieve anything because I am the only one here and I have all the responsibility to make Mars a settlement and for people. Well I got to get some sleep so that I can build tomorrow.


Day 4

So today I got a little board and so I went for an adventure. I saw lots of cool things like my old alien friends, an ufo, and a lot of cool things. I didn’t even start building another house because I was to busy exploring space and everything around Mars. I have three more days until I have to go back home. I am kind of happy that I am leaving soon but I am kind of sad to leave. I am happy to leave because I am getting lonely, and I am sad to leave because this has been such a cool experience.


Day 5

Today I had to build the last house. This house I am putting a lot of time into because I want the last house to be the best house that is on Mars. I can’t wait to go home and see my kids and my wife and spend time with my friends. Today has been a long today of hard working and that hasn’t happened to me in a long time. I usually don’t get tired of doing a little bit of work but this is a lot of work for me to do in one day. Only two more days left until I get to go home and sleep in my own bed.

Day 6

This is my last day on Mars. I am very happy to be able to go home and see my friends and family. Today is the only day that I have nothing to do and so I got ready to go home. I had to clean up the spaceship and pickup all of my tools. Well I think I am going to go to bed because I have to stay up the whole way home. Goodnight!

Day 7

HOME TIME!!!! I am so happy to be going home. I left this morning at 5:30 and I will be home at 3 that’s in one hour! Ugh I can’t wait to be home. I have arrived safely at home. My kids were really happy to see me. I’m so happy to be home.

Dear John,

How was your experience going to Mars? From all of your journal entries I could tell you had a good time. I bet you are glad to be back.



Dear Pete,,

I had a blast in Mars, I am happy to be home but it was a great experience. I hope in the next years the Mars settlement will happen and there will be people living on Mars.

Yours truly,
