Nova Science Now: Can We Make It to Mars
Neil deGrasse Tyson. We’ve already successfully sent probes and satellites to the Red Planet, but can a human survive a trip there and back? There are meteorites, radiation exposures, anti-gravity illnesses and food and oxygen supply issues for the potentially 3-year journey. Then rocket scientists ponder the possibility of a plasma rock so fast that it could send us to Mars and back in a matter of weeks…if the engine didn’t melt itself and the spacecraft along the way. 2011/color/60 min/NR/widescreen.
