In 2015/16 the BlottMatthews Challenge was the M2M (Mission to Mars) competition.

Teams from Yr 12 / Lower Sixth were required to design a manned space mission to Mars. This included designing the spacecraft and propulsion method, proposing scientific studies to conduct on Mars, providing life support and protection of astronauts and developing the overall mission planning. This was a very demanding task for the teams but their success in meeting the challenge is demonstrated by the following design submissions.
