    Use your imagination. For example, one bed and some rope might work. Surely you could find a use for velcro? Even teflon and heats shields?

          1) It wouldn't be space exploration without teflon and heat shields.
          2) How else would you protect the spectators?

            To Mars in 39 days!

            His rocket would use electricity to transform a fuel -- likely hydrogen, helium or deuterium -- into plasma gas that is heated to 51.8 million degrees Fahrenheit (11 million degrees Celsius). The plasma gas is then channeled into tailpipes using magnetic fields to propel the spacecraft.

            That would send a shuttle hurtling toward the moon or Mars at ever faster speeds up to an estimated 35 miles (55 kilometers) per second until the engines are reversed.

            Chang-Diaz, a veteran of seven space missions, said this rapid acceleration could translate into a round trip voyage to Mars that would last as little as three years, including a forced stay of 18 months on the Red Planet, as astronauts await an opening to return to Earth.

            The distance between the Earth and Mars varies between 35 and 250 million miles (55 million and 400 million kilometers) depending on their points of orbit.

              With this grasp of elementary maths, I'm surprised the writer didn't give the metric distances as 56.32704 and 402.336 million kilometres...
