The Minds Behind the Mission to Mars illustrates that future for our planet is interplanetary space travel. We talked to numerous people with knowledge and experience in space exploration, planetary science, astronomy education, as well as general interest in space itself. Throughout our piece, there are many topics covered about how space affects humans. Both NASA and Mars One plan to send people to mars and into deep space. However, Mars One is sending four people at a time in waves on a one way trip. NASA plans to bring the astronauts there and back. This will be the first time that people have ever traveled into deep space, and out of Earth's orbit.
