We consider the hypersonic CO2 flow field around a spaceship in the Martian atmosphere using different models of multi-component diffusion. Transport coefficients of a multi-component gas mixture determined in accordance to the kinetic theory are compared with the coefficients calculated using approximate expressions. We present the numerical results illustrating the influence of these approaches on the heat transfer near the surface of the spaceship moving in the Martian atmosphere.
