U.S. President Barack Obama Asks NASA To Send Humans To Mars By 2030

Published on 12 October, 2016 at 8:48 pm By

U.S. President Barack Obama asked NASA to strengthen the mission of sending humans to Mars and make it possible by 2030s.

In his an op-ed on CNN’s website, he wrote,”These missions will teach us how humans can live far from Earth, something we’ll need for the long journey to Mars. The ultimate goal is for humans eventually to stay on the red planet for an extended time.”

However, NASA officials say that there is nothing new what’s White House said on Mars.

“There’s nothing big here at all, unless you haven’t been paying attention. It’s a re-focusing of the fact that he set these goals and NASA has been pursuing them,” former George Washington University space policy chief John Logsdon told AP.

Alan Ladwig, a former top NASA official, told Ap that he likes the intent, but it’s a bit late in the term to shine a light on the humans to Mars exploration.

Meanwhile, White House has called attention to companies who were given contracts to build prototypes for habitats that could survive on the red planet.

The White House awarded to six companies to build prototypes for “habitats” that could sustain human life in deep space. One such privately developed habitat _ an inflatable room _is already attached to the International Space Station.

Obama also said that within two years, private companies like SpaceX and Boeing will taxi astronauts to the space station with NASA as a customer.
