Space travel as a whole is a very risky business. Most of our understanding about interplanetary travel comes from the probes we have sent into space. Although these robots do not have the same weaknesses as human biology, electronic circuits are still prone to damage by highly charged particles from the Sun (a.k.a. Space Weather) and protective shields are open to high-speed space debris impacts. The risks for humans outside the protective atmosphere of Earth are greater still. This category contains the perceived hazards human (and robotic) missions to Mars will face and the risks any future settlement on the surface of Mars will have to deal with.
