Utilizing the International Space Station, including international partnerships, is essential for human missions to deep space. ESA Sending humans to Mars by the s is affordable, a group of experts finds, but some key changes are needed if it is going to happen.
Total project was estimated to cost 10 to 15 billion Euros. The mission would take about days to complete with three astronauts visiting the surface of the planet for a period of two months.
