    NASA officially announces manned Mars mission (2035). First test launch is tomorrow.

    MOTHER FUCKING SPACE MEN.


    This is all assuming their budget doesn't get major cuts... again.
    NASA is launching its boldest test flight in decades this week. An unmanned capsule will head off on Thursday to reach a distance of 3,600 miles from Earth—the farthest space mission with a craft designed to accommodate humans since the final Apollo 17 trip to the moon in 1972.
    Called Orion, the program will mark a key initial step toward a human mission to Mars. Orion is also designed to excite the public’s imagination for deep-space exploration, much as the Apollo moon missions sparked an interest in space and produced civilian engineering triumphs. With the first test flight on Thursday, NASA wants to make it abundantly clear that much of the hardware that can get humans to Mars already exists and is ready to fly.
    “My hope is that when we fly the capsule on Thursday, it will energize the public and energize that middle schooler [who] isn’t quite sure what he wants to do, but he likes math and science,” says Richard Boitnott, an engineer at NASA’s Langley Research Center.


    ....


    The first Orion mission to Mars isn’t anticipated until about 2035, preceded by numerous shorter flights for the four-person capsule to help improve technologies that will protect Mars-bound astronauts from radiation in deep space and the physiological impairments of a zero-gravity environment. One of those flights, set for the mid-to-late 2020s, will involve a rendezvous with an asteroid redirected by a robot spacecraft to orbit the moon. The mission will dock with the robotic spacecraft carrying the asteroid and then collect samples.

    Maybe if they stopped hobnocking people, then they wouldn't be bullshit taking so long to land a piece of space tits on mars.

    Call up General Welsh and have him unblock MPGH on NIPRNET and I'll get on during the duty day.
