NASA is serious, very serious, about launching the most difficult mission ever attempted by the human race - putting an astronaut on Mars. The voyage will cover hundreds of millions of miles and take two-and-a-half years roundtrip. It sounds like science fiction.

To make it scientific fact, the United States needs to first flex its deep space muscles again on familiar terrain - the moon.

2 1/2 years....if everything goes right. I wonder how many are lining up for this mission after Apolo 13, and two Space Shuttles.

There will always be someone willing to sacrifice themselves to advance science.

Of course there'll be people willing to do it.

There are always the brave souls.
