Today on Far Future Horizons we present the second episode of “Mars Rising” – “Rocket Power”. William Shatner narrates this exciting series.
The spacecraft that will take a crew to Mars will be assembled—in space. Up to ten rockets will be required to carry equipment and the astronauts to the mothership. The fifty six million-kilometer journey to and from the Red Planet could take up to three years. Will the fuel be thermo-nuclear or super-heated charged particles? Engineers must get it right the first time—or the astronauts will die.
