In an update to the Inspiration Mars mission, it appears that Dennis Tito, the millionaire behind this project, is asking for the public's help to
attain the necessary funding. The date for launch of 2018 is still on. Mars won't be this close for another 15yrs so Tito and his partners find
themselves in a rut as they race to achieve their goal of having one man and one woman do a fly-by of Mars and return to Earth. Of course the Mars
One mission, which is set to go to the Red planet in 2022-2023 is still on as well. Some of the entities involved with this project include Zubrin
and the Mars Society, Space X, and NASA. What does ATS have to say about this development?
