The first trip to Mars will come with the longest layover ever

NASA Mission to Mars Phases

Nobody likes layovers, but the first astronauts heading to Mars will get to experience one of the longest such experiences of their lives. They’ll have to spend one year going around the moon, which will probably be a very annoying wait for the first people heading to the red planet. It’s not all bad news, however, as they won’t just wait for time to pass by. NASA actually wants to make sure that the round trip to Mars, a 1,000-day endeavor, is carefully planned during the time.

are we going back to the moon

When China's Chang'e 3 mission successfully landed a rover on the Moon in 2013 it was the first time a spacecraft had achieved a soft landing on the rock in nearly four decades.
