KOMPAS.com – In 25 years, people will come to Mars. At least this is what the US Space Agency (NASA) believes when on Monday (11/12/2018)
Reporting from Al JazeeraTom Jones, a former NASA astronaut who participated in a press conference, admitted on Wednesday (14 November 2013) that there were many people at that time who wanted to send people to Mars.
However, he and NASA believe that the solution with technological development and current funding solutions in 25 years.
You need to know, Mars is located approximately 225 million kilometers from Earth, which is currently required for the use of rocket technology for about nine months.

In such a long time, the absence of gravity can cause constant changes in the blood vessels in the retina, which can lead to blindness, as well as loss of calcium and bone mass that causes atrophy. In addition, the effects of cosmic radiation are also worrying.
One way to reduce the impact of a Mars trip on the astronaut is to shorten their duration, which means that a better driving system is needed.
Jones proposed nuclear power, which could also be used by astronauts to produce electricity.
"If it starts now, in 25 years we may already have the technology to help and protect us on long trips like this one," he said.

Space experts, in addition to the driving system, also say that it is also necessary to quickly develop vehicles that can survive on Mars and land on land, bringing astronauts to Mars and returning to earth.
At present, NASA already has robotism called InSight. The robot is supposed to land on the red planet on November 26, 2018. The purpose of sending InSight is to reveal how the state of the internal Mars is.
Then NASA will send it in 2020 rover to Mars, which will determine whether the Mars environment can be inhabited by people, search for signs of ancient life, and explore the natural resources and dangers for future astronauts who have come there.
