Nasa outlines manned Mars vision


news.bbc.co.uk

Nasa has released details of its strategy for sending a human crew to Mars within the next few decades.

The US space agency envisages despatching a "minimal" crew on a 30-month round trip to the Red Planet in a 400,000kg (880,000lb) spacecraft.

Details of the concept were outlined at a meeting in Houston, Texas.
The "Mars ship" would be assembled in low-Earth orbit using three to four Ares V rockets - the new heavy-lift launch vehicle that Nasa has been developing.

This is great news, but apparently it's not going to happen until 2031 - at least by that time the technology should be available to make this a viable prospect.

Now all we need to do (as a species) is stop the wars and concentrate on the important stuff.
i.e. Exploration of our solar system and eventually beyond, but that will never happen while politicians put personal advancement before the needs of the many.

I like the NASA's idea of aircraft to be deployed in Martian atmosphere.
