Abstract: The main objective of this work is the design and simulation with the math software GeoGebra, of a journey to Mars for a spacecraft launched from Earth, following a Hohmann Transfer Orbit (HOT) to complete the travel. Mars has fascinated mankind since antiquity. We are seeing a resurgence of this interest in the wake of many successful attempts to land on Mars. In this paper we want to harness the power of algebraic and geometric visualizations that GeoGebra offers us to make some constructions of real simulations of the orbit traced by a spacecraft to reach the red planet.
