Nasa Plans To Send New Rover To Red Planet


news.sky.com

Nasa has announced plans to send a new rover to Mars in 2020 as it prepares for a manned mission to the Red Planet.

The news comes a day after results of the first soil tested by the Curiosity rover found traces of some of the compounds like water and oxygen that are necessary for life.

Very interesting news on the red planet once again as a new rover is planned to be there for 2020. Is it me or does there seem to be a hell of a lot more interest in Mars than there was for the moon?

"The challenge to restructure the Mars Exploration Programme has turned from the seven minutes of terror for the Curiosity landing to the start of seven years of innovation," said astronaut John Grunsfeld, Nasa's associate administrator for science.

Must have soil capable of growing plants, they need to know what kind of fertilizer to bring along with them.

Yeah, I heard Nasa are into that organic thing


Nasa are baffoons, it's obvious they found organics native to the planet, but oh no, it might be contamination, it might have been brought there from a meteor, it's sheer baffoonery imo.

Spacex might send actual people to mars by that time, so it looks like NASA might be behind schedule.

No contaminated soils up there

We think alike, already corrected myself

NASA has plenty of fertilizer to use, all the B.S they have spewed can fertilize a planet for a millinia!

Maybe, just maybe, some color photos would be nice to the taxpayers that fund these trips.
Hell, I'll give em my phone to take pictures (they would be better quality)

I think that we deserve better data for the billions we pay!

Well maybe they realize if we screw up the Earth bad enough we need to have a backup plan. Mars 2.0. There have been several Sci-Fi movies where we bring back an atmosphere to Mars by alien technology or by seeding the planet? If there is water and organics who knows. We just have to make sure Monsanto doesn't get there first!

Thank you, person who has "individual" critical thinking capabilities.

How far have they advanced cpu technology in just the past 10 years?
Do you really think they are sending Windows 95 technology to Mars now?

They know far more about Mars than they'd EVER tell the public.
Why? Because they can, and should IMHO, because the public are collectively morons.

The individual person can be capable of so many beautiful things, but the collective public mentality grouped together are a dangerous monstrosity that needs to be caged at some mental level. If it wasn't, we'd have chaos right now... which we kind of need in many areas.

I've seen tech that exists that proves they can send humans to Mars right now, so they probably have. If not NASA, then the private sector has.

I am an individual that is capable of critical thinking. I take that as a compliment, thank you!

You and your friends all throw money in to get 2 xl pizzas, you expect what you pay for as a group, right?
When 1 small pizza comes & no change returned, do you feel cheated?
Why wouldn't that same concept apply to space exploration?

Care to elaborate on the advanced tech you personally witnessed? I'm very interested as a critical thinking individual. I just hope it's not a leaked Star Wars movie scene.

I agree that a lot of people are stupid but I feel you're letting some of your world view creep in on this one mate. The planet as a whole and all the people on it have an equal right to know what is going on, who made the government god to decide? That ain't right on any level and to make it worse this is actually funded at the expense of the population, whether it be the C.I.A. selling heroin to a junkie, or some other government department using legitimate money from taxes, same difference, it's at the expense of the people here.

Can I just ask, are you one hundred percent sure that the tech you seen was built here? How do you know it's Nasa or private sector?

Perhaps the public wouldn't be so moronic if they'd have been given the truth about everything in the first place. How can one be expected to make an intelligent and informed decision if his information is largely false?

Damn fine question.

I don't know where the technology I saw came from. It reminded me of Steven Speilberg ET type of illumination. It was something that will change your thoughts forever if you saw it in action.

The point is not where it was built, the point is, it's "known" technology by OUR people, Every day that goes by that someone dies from a car accident or plane crash, it's murder in my eyes.

I know what exists, or at least existed 200FT above my head and stood there, so I know what they "at least" are aware of. It's murder as far as I'm concerned, withholding any of that tech.

You are correct, sir. I remember reading that certain plants/ vegetables can be grown on Mars. I think it is Asparagus and Broccoli that can be grown there.

We could take mars two moons and change their orbits to cause them to tug and pull on mars in hopes of waking up its core to heat it up. If we pull ceres into mars orbit we might could get the core spun up for a magnetic field plus ceres is supposedly full of water ice.

Should not be a problem, NASA is full of fertilizer

Asparagus, food of the gods. Odin treated his warriors to the Asparagae dancers when they returned from battle. Asparagus ferns dance in the wind. They are a good source of Asparagines which settle a person down. Nowadays we can just drink diet coke with Aspertame.
Maybe they can put a coke plant on mars.
