Are we going to Mars in 2023?
NASA aims to launch astronauts to Mars by the late 2030s or early 2040s. Making that vision a reality will be challenging. Assuming the funding and technology come into play at the right time, for example, the round-trip travel time would still be about 500 days given the distance between Earth and Mars.
What year will humans reach Mars?
NASA is under presidential orders to land humans on Mars by 2033 although later years like 2035 or even late 2030s seem as a more realistic approach. NASA-funded engineers are studying a way to build potential human habitats there by producing bricks from pressurized Martian soil.
How long will it take SpaceX to get to Mars?
