How can each of us contribute to designing and experimenting from down here?
I am an engineer working in space, and want to contribute some of my time and passion to help design a Mars mission. I'm reading up on some AIAA books (Spacecraft Mission Design, Space vehicle design and later LSS related).
How can we help NASA, ESA and JAXA? Where to send our conclusions? Where to create think tanks? Shouldn't we build a community of Mars Mission Design, governed by open-minded experts?
Just like Wikipedia managed to unite great minds, why not do the same for a Mars Mission?
