Millionaire spaceflier reportedly plans private mission to Mars in 2018

Millionaire spaceflier reportedly plans private mission to Mars in 2018 | Dan's Space News | Scoop.it

Dennis Tito, the millionaire investment whiz who became the first paying passenger to visit the International Space Station in 2001, is said to be planning a privately backed, 501-day mission to Mars in 2018. But the full details — including whether humans will go along for the ride — may have to wait until a Washington news conference next week.

 

Word of the venture came out in a media advisory passed along by the SpaceRef website on Wednesday. The advisory, attributed to Houston-based Griffin Communications Group, describes a "Mission for America" that would capitalize on a favorable orbital opportunity to launch a round-trip mission to Mars in January 2018.
