How long will it take to reach Mars? – SwordsToday.ie

Elon Musk has a vision to carry one million people to Mars by 2050.

Although the CEO of SpaceX recently revealed that humans plan to live on the planets glass domes, many are still questioning how long it will take to get there, even if life on Mars is ideal?

There is a long distance between Earth and Mars, which means that any trip to the red planet will take a long time.

This is further complicated by the fact that the distances are constantly changing as the two planets revolve around the sun.

The closest distance between Earth and Mars is 33.9 million miles 9,800 times the distance between London and New York.

However this is very rare: the most useful distance is the average, i.e. 140 million miles.

Earth scientists have already launched a bunch of space probes to (or near) Mars, so we have a rough idea of how long it will take with current technology.

Historically, the voyage took 128 to 333 days a long time for humans to travel in a narrow spacecraft.

No man has ever set foot on Mars.

The Soviets first sent unmanned spacecraft to Mars in the 1960s.

NASAs Mariner 4 was the first successful space probe to orbit Mars.

This happened in 1965. In 1971, Soviet spacecraft landed on the surface of the Red Planet.

Since then, several spacecraft have been sent to explore Mars, but we will have to wait a little longer to send one person.

NASA has once again revealed its goal of sending one man to Mars by 2037.

Currently, no strong evidence of Mars past or present life has been found.

This does not mean that scientists are not looking.

There is evidence that the dry planet once had surface water and habitable conditions.

However, just because a planet has habitable conditions does not automatically mean that it has lived there or that there is life there.

Mars is the second most habitable planet in our solar system.

It is neither too hot nor too cold, and is thought to have enough gravity to adapt to the human body.

However, there is no free oxygen in the atmosphere, so humans cannot breathe if they do not receive oxygen on their own.

Humans also need to wear a pressure suit.

The soil is toxic, water is scarce, and you need protection from radiation and cold.

If any living thing on Earth wants to survive on Mars it must be in some kind of protective bubble.

Some scientists thought it could be more habitable because we could change the atmosphere of the planets.

We do not know exactly when humans will land on Mars.

NASA plans to place a man and the first woman on the moon in 2024.

After this mission, the Red Planet will be on the agenda, with current estimates that by 2030 we could see one man on Mars.

Elon Musk has previously stated that he wants to send a team of humans to Mars within the next decade.
