(NASA) and Boeing, school students from Lahore and Delhi have prepared a novel project on future of human civilisation in Mars.

The project on crew ship to travel from Earth to Mars reflects an innovative idea of people of the Earth going to Mars by this space craft.

"You can go from Earth to Mars by a space craft. You can leave the space craft in the orbit between Earth and Mars and it will cross the orbit of Mars from where people can safely go to Mars," a student from Lahore Grammar School said.

As per the project, 8,800 people, including 2,300 crew members and 6,500 travellers, can go Mars in the spacecraft.Fifteen students from Lahore and 12 students from Amity International School here have designed this project.These students met US Ambassador Timothy J Roemer here.

The students designed a city in space that will be home for over 10,000 people, demonstrating creativity, technical competence, management skills, environmental knowledge, teamwork, and presentation techniques to conquer the problems inherent in designing a Space Settlement.They presented a 40-page report communicating their ideas and designs.
