Another Giant Leap

July 20, 2019

Let's make it our goal to land people on Mars
by the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing.

A mid-2018 launch window would provide a late 2018
or early 2019 landing date with the mission spanning
beyond the anniversary date allowing for a celebration
to take place on the Red Planet.

Unfortunately, Mars is a bust for this time frame. It would be
really sad if we can't even make it back to the Moon by then.
