UK team designs human mission to Mars

Scientists at Imperial College London have designed a concept mission to land astronauts on Mars.

The plan envisages a three-person crew journeying to Mars aboard a small two-part craft.

The craft would rotate to generate artificial gravity and use a heat shield to protect itself against solar flares.

The crew would then return to Martian orbit in a pre-sent craft fuelled using ice from beneath the planet's surface.

Seems like everybody is planning a trip to Mars. I think we will all have to work together to get it done cost wise.

EDIT: Wrong topic.

Anyway, great idea, but I think the problems lie always in the propulsion system. Untill we'll have a better and faster engine, I see it a very long way to Mars (much more than 400 milion km)
