NASA's laser-powered spacecraft will fly to Mars in 72 hours - Mars exploration compilation

Description

1. NASA was forced to cancel six attempted launches of a saucer-shaped Mars landing test vehicle in early June, 2014 because of unusually strong winds at the Hawaiian test site. 2. NASA scientist Philip Lubin is working on perfecting laser technology that could propel a light spacecraft to Mars in as little as three days. 3. NASA is developing an inflatable heat shield it plans to test in 2016 that could one day be used to send astronauts to Mars. 4. Fusion rocket engines could take a manned crew to Mars in 30 to 90 days, NASA-funded scientists at the University of Washington say. 5. A NASA-funded study written by aerospace engineering company SpaceWorks says that keeping astronauts unconscious during long flights in space cuts down on the equipment and resources needed on the shuttle, and also eliminates the negative psychological effects of long hauls in space.
