Inspiration Mars Foundation to send manned mission to Mars in 2018



Dennis Tito : engineer, multimillionaire
“The Inspiration Mars Foundation, founded by Tito, plans to start its mission in January 2018, taking advantage of a rare launch window. Earth and Mars will be aligned in such a way that a trip that would normally take between two to three years would last about a year and a half, or 501 days.
