So you want to go to Mars...and live to tell about it?
NASA is building the world's first interplanetary space travel system to take humans on deep-space missions to destinations never explored before. It takes the real rocket scientists of NASA and its industry team of experts to solve the incredible challenges of going further in to space and returning safely to Earth. Orbital mechanics, the laws of physics and sustaining human life in the vacuum of space are just a few of the problems they work through every day. Come meet the team and learn how to follow them along the Journey to Mars.
