This project introduces the SAGON spacecraft, a deep space habitable environment using technology available today to address areas NASA considers deficient. This design was submitted to the NASA NextSTEP-2 proposal solicitation. The craft is capable of integrating newer technologies, providing a longer lifespan for the design. Additionally, this project highlights the steps in colonizing Mars using the craft. In accordance with NASA’s Mars Exploration program’s goals, SAGON can help NASA launch a manned mission to Mars by the 2030’s.
