China Unveils Plan to Send Astronauts to Mars | Futurism

For the first time, China has revealed plans to send astronauts to Mars, via a publication released by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. Pang Zhihao, a researcher in Beijing stated that ‚Äúsending astronauts there will give man better opportunities to look for traces of life on Mars.‚ÄĚ Scientists estimate that the trip could take over 500 days and are concerned about radiation, bone mineral density, and the mental health of the crew. ¬†In light of these and other enormous challenges, the Mars expedition may not come to fruition before 2050.
