Artist's impression of a mission to Mars in the 1990s. Visible in the image are two manned capsules each with a satellite receiving antennae for transmitting and receiving information. Various rovers and processors would collect samples of Martian soil and rocks for laboratory analysis. Overhead are several Interplanetary Shuttles powered by solar-sails, which transport people and goods between the planets. The mission would last for three years and involve four astronauts. The project would also involve the building of a nuclear power plant on the planet.
