  4. Simulated Mission to Mars Ends After Four Months on “Mars”

    Real World: Fake Mars?

    The area of interpersonal relationships between astronauts on a long-term mission to Mars is a bit of a gap in NASA's research.

  6. NASA Shows Off New Rover That Could Let Astronauts Cruise Around Mars

    One giant leap for rover kind?

  9. National Research Council Says NASA Has to Get Its Ass to Mars

    Howdy, NASA. This is Hauser—er, the National Research Council.

If Mars were a star, we'd all be dead. Or basically on Tatooine.
