NASA has shared
its early plans to send astronauts to Mars for 30 days.
The space agency had
released a draft set of high-level objectives earlier this year.
These identify 50 points
falling under four categories of exploration, including transportation and habitation; Moon and Mars infrastructure; operations and science.
The space agency is calling
on the industry, academia, international communities and other stakeholders to provide input on its deep space exploration objectives.
It will continue to
accept feedback on its plans till May 31.
NASA aims to launch astronauts
to the red planet by the late 2030s or early 2040s, which is a challenging feat, to say the least.
