Life on mars?
Posted on: Wed 13 Jan 2021
The earth is sooo 2021 years ago, people are looking for the next floating ball in space to set foot on.
Those looking to the stars are eager to get human life on Mars, and this may take time, money and intelligent people to get the ball rolling.
NASA and Space X estimate it will take 20 to 40 years until we get to space, and the first call of action is to send samples such as a robot, in case, you know, a real human explodes or involuntarily floats into the milky way.
Since the trip is long, fuel is a huge barrier, with spaceships needing enough fuel to get there and back home.
Tom Mann speaks to Chris James, lecturer in the Centre for Hypersonics at The University of Queensland to discuss the possibility of life on mars.
