In One-Way space travel, the first ship is a robotic cargo ship. There is no return fuel needed, so that weight can be added to payload and the cargo capsule is designed to be dismantled for parts.

The payload will include a 3D printer in unassembled form, with the assembly robot erecting the gantry. A heavier mining robot will scoop and sift regolith to feed the 3D printer hopper. Solar panels will be salvaged from the sides of the cargo capsule. The air lock is also salvaged from the cargo capsule. This sets up the first outpost.

As time goes on, settlers will live in sealed underground lava tubes due to the intense radiation on the surface. The surface domes will only be used for surface excursions, with the Mars transporter, flying with rocket fuel extracted from perma ice.


PLA @ 200 degrees first layer, 195 degrees, cold plate, 200 micron, 4 hours for the dome, 3 hours for the transporter ship
