Exciting stuff. Three Mars missions happening simultaneously.
The Space Age has truly arrived.
That is because of Mars is closest to Earth at this time. The journey is for seven months. Can you imagine a manned flight taking seven months? It illustrates how nonsensical space travel is in the movies when they fly from planet to planet and don't even need a shave when the ship arrives.

It is fascinating stuff. I am kind of concerned though. We've messed up our planet, environmentally speaking. We don't have the right to mess up another one.
