SIGN ME UP: NASA’S MANNED MARS MISSION GETS APPROVAL

The agency has been working on a one-of-a-kind rocket called the Space Launch System which could eventually propel a manned space capsule to Mars. The design of the rocket incorporates several elements of the retired space shuttle but features a few key difference, most notably “advanced boosters” for heavy load. The project was just approved for testing to take place in 2018 with manned missions scheduled for the 2030s.
