Are We Going To Mars?

We have been to the moon, thanks to NASA, but never to Mars. Going to Mars is something that humanity has envisioned ever since it set foot on the moon. However, decades ago we lacked the means and the power to facilitate safe passage to Mars, one of the many planets in our solar system. With the recent technological advancements, plans are underway to have some of us travel to Mars. Due to President Trump’s directive for NASA to take people to Mars by 2033, the space agency has been on its toes to come up with a detailed plan for the expedition. According to NASA, their plan will encompass five phases. Although the project is expected to experience severe challenges, the space agency is determined to bring President Trump’s directive to fruition. Currently, there are ongoing tests to determine how best NASA can take people to Mars. Besides, launching and testing of rockets is expected to be held in the coming year so as to deliver vital components to the Deep Space Gateway. NASA’s move has come as a challenge to other companies that deal with space exploration. Whereas NASA projects to safely take us to the moon by 2033, other corporations guarantee an early Mars arrival, presumably by the year 2022. Thus, such a scenario will force NASA to work around the clock, because any challenge will deter it from its initial course. If it so happens that we arrive on Mars by 2033, we will have done what previous generations failed to do.
