Elon Musk recently said that he’s planning to send astronauts to Mars beginning in 2024. He also said that many of the first astronauts may never make it back to Earth.
Traveling to Mars takes exploration to a whole new level. It will require taking a 9-month journey to the planet in a small space-ship. Then, the astronauts will need to somehow survive on a planet where the average temperature is minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If something goes wrong, the soonest help from Earth will be 9-months away. It will take a special kind of explorer to travel to Mars.
