A waste of money going to mars.what is the point.
if you have nothing to add to the topic then please do not respond. This is a topic about a planned mission
, not about the politics involved with funding space exploration.
We know the mission date may change and I specifically left out any dollar figures as we know
those change on a project like this.
Back on topic, a 30-month mission being 2 1/2 years is a long time and that means a number of redundant systems in case of failure.
From disaster scenarios of 2000 mars mission films like Mission to Mars
, Red Planet
There are a number of issues with a major 4 year 2-mission interplanetary project.
