Human Mars mission design is a specialized subset of space mission design involving the complications of sending humans on an interplanetary journey and returning them to Earth. Mars is 1000 times as far from Earth as the moon, and in many ways, the human mission to mars may be 1000 times as challenging as the voyages to the moon in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
