Engineeringnews.co.za: South African in the Mars mix as race to the Red Planet heats up #MarsOne | MARS, the red planet | Scoop.it
It is 2031 and the next space race has started with the launch of the largest-ever interplanetary space rocket and spaceship carrying four carefully selected astronauts on a mission to establish a human settlement on Mars – a planet that is about 225-million kilometres away. Heading for the fourth rock from the sun, these first Martian astronauts will never return to earth: the Mars One mission is a one-way trip with no option of returning.

Congress wants #NASA to hurry up and get to Mars #SpaceX #MarsOne #Space #Ventures

Congress wants #NASA to hurry up and get to Mars #SpaceX #MarsOne #Space #Ventures | MARS, the red planet | Scoop.it
NASA’s going to infinity and beyond — specifically, to Mars.

Both the Senate and House approved a bill that authorizes a whopping $19.508 billion in spending for NASA in 2017, a $208 million increase from 2016.

The 146-page bill is jam packed with mandates for the space agency to position the US as “a thriving space economy in the 21st century.” Most notably, it demands that NASA gets humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.” It also wants less time devoted to the Asteroid Redirect Mission in favor of focusing those efforts on getting us to Mars. ARM’s launch would have captured an asteroid and placed it in the moon’s orbit for astronauts to study.

And there’s a ton of other initiatives, including finally getting a probe to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, speeding up programs that detect apocalyptic asteroids and sending a crew to the moon by 2021.

The bill also mandates that NASA help enhance cybersecurity protections, provide a report on how they plan to make nuclear fuel for deep-space robots and develop a strategy for finding more exoplanets. The bill specifies that expanding “permanent human presence beyond low-Earth orbit” should be the first of the agency's long-term goals.

In February, the Senate gave its unanimous approval and SpaceNews.com reported that the bill received zero opposition from the House. This makes it the first time a NASA spending bill has passed both chambers of Congress since The NASA Authorization Act of 2010.

But despite its backing some representatives have raised an eyebrow at the bill’s exclusion of earth science programs.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) told SpaceNews.com that, while she supported it overall, the bill wasn’t flawless. “It does not directly address all of NASA’s science programs, mainly Earth science and heliophysics.” Rep. Johnson is a ranking member of the House Science Committee.

In November, one of Trump’s senior advisers told The Guardian that the president planned to slash funding to NASA’s decades-old earth science programs, including projects dedicated to studying climate change.

NASA doesn’t comment on proposed legislation, but will likely release a statement once the bill is signed by President Donald Trump. Trump could veto it, but is expected to sign as he’s previously alluded to support for a manned mission to Mars. In his inauguration speech, he said he’s “ready to unlock the mysteries of space.”

Plus, China’s got their sights set on getting an “exploratory” mission to Mars by 2020 and is reportedly making a spaceship that could land on the moon.
