Journey to Mars

" This idea of human exploration of Mars has excited me my whole life but the idea of reaching Mars decades from now was too far for me to get my hands on.

I was tasked with putting together a plan that makes human exploration of Mars real and tangible with a deadline of by 2028.

With the technology we have today, the country’s investment in new space systems & vehicles, what else do we need to get human exploration on Mars well underway?

We can make this happen within the time frame, that feels real! "

Yes! I'm coming
