Re: "Mars Direct" NBC series in development about a mission to Mars

Why does NBC even try anymore?

This part was actually used in a West Wing episode...
Mars Direct is a proposal for a relatively low-cost manned mission to Mars with current rocket technology. The plan was originally detailed in a research paper by Robert Zubrin and David Baker in 1990. The mission was expanded upon in Zubrin's book 1996 The Case For Mars.
