Transcript of Manned Mission to Mars

Can and will it happen in 2033? NASA is planning a manned mission to Mars that is supposed to take place sometime in 2033. It's very expensive, though, so money is an issue. Mars is also 140x farther away from Earth than the moon, so distance is a big obstacle. The mission would also require advanced technology to make susceptible suits and a space shuttle. Is it realistic?
NASA is planning on doing an unmanned flight to Mars sometime between 2016 and 2021 as an experiment for the manned flight. They (NASA) also plan on sending a crew of astronauts to Mars sometime in the 2030’s. The Mars Rover is giving them (NASA) an idea of what Mar's terrain is like. What's NASA's role in it? There is a lot of radiation on Mars’ surface, so the suits will need to be resistant to it, so the astronauts will not acquire radiation poisoning.The astronauts suit's will also need to be able to withstand Mar's atmosphere, which will require advanced technology, because Mars’ gravity has only 38% of the amount the Earth has. The shuttle would also need to be big enough to hold enough supplies and fuel for the entire trip (besides fueling stations in space, the ISS). The shuttle would need to be durable enough to land on an asteroid twice and Mars once. What technology would be required? How would it be done? It would cost roughly $50 billion (in a 2013 dollar value). The Mars rover alone costs $2.5 million. How much would it cost? The inaugural manned Mars flight would take a total of roughly three years. It takes roughly one year just to get there. Astronauts plan to spend around 18 months on Mars, studying it. How long would it take? Manned Mission to Mars http://www.futuretimeline.net/21stcentury/2033.htm

The shuttle and the astronauts would be sent up into space. The shuttle would probably stop at a fueling station. The shuttle would later land on an asteroid for a "pit stop", and go to Mars, where the astronauts will spend 18 months experimenting. They will land on an asteroid again as they come back before they reach Earth again on the way back.
