The 2018 Humans to Mars Report was released last week at the annual Human to Mars Summit held in Washington, DC. The report reinforced a notional date of 2033 for the first humans to Mars mission.

Mars by 2033

My guest this week is Joe Cassady and today we’re going to talk about the 2018 Humans to Mars Report.

There seems to be a convergence happening within the Mars community, both within government and the commercial sector, that the pieces needed to make a mission happen by 2033 can be ready.

Joe is the Executive Vice President and a Director at Explore Mars who published the report and organized the annual summit. I should note that his day job though, is that of Executive Director, Space at Aerojet Rocketdyne.

Listen in to this weeks SpaceQ podcast as Joe discusses how we might actually have a target date that’s achievable.
