This year's mission saw OCESS's return to Mars under the direction of Habitat Commander Sonyan Cai. His subordinates included Computer Engineer Stefan De Young, Electrical Engineer Jonathan Scothorn, and Biomedical Engineer Mor Levy.

The trip to Mars was eventful with many pieces of "space junk" striking the Habitat. Luckily no major damage was incurred. One other major problem that the astronauts encountered while on Mars was the frightening regularity with which their fuel cell was blown away by dust storms, struck by meteorites, or just fell off. Astronauts Scothorn and De Young were forced to expend entire oxygen tanks (6 hours) one evening searching for it. Luckily, it was found the next morning during an EVA, so the Habitat was able to return home.
