Private rocket blasts off for space station – as NASA officials unveil a new mission to Mars
For its mission into space, Mars One will be able to launch the Mars Science Laboratory and return to Earth to collect scientific experiments, and to explore Ma바카라사이트rs’ mineral deposits and its water resources.
In comparison, Nasa’s New Horizons probe last year returned only a sample of Jupiter’s atmosphere to Earth.
The plan is to return five scientific and commercial instruments to Mars and return to Earth the final rover and its cargo to Mars as well.

The team also wants to explore whether its lander and rovers would still survive the intense cold temperatures on Mars – a key component of the programme.
To investigate this possibility, a mission will also be launched to a moon or a planet i더킹카지노n the solar system.
On a smaller scale, the group hopes to send the first person to the red planet in as little as 20 months.
The mission’s final aim is to achieve the goal of sending humans to Mars in 2023.
It will be the fourth and most expensive human mission to the Red Planet. The most expensive trip was the 1999 Russian crewed mission, in which more than a dozen Russian cosmonauts sp우리카지노ent three days on the surface.
It was also the first European mission of the Rosetta mission, which used ESA’s probe Mars Express to take the first photograph of Earth after it emerged from orbit around the Red Planet in July 2009.
