    Russians Propose Human Mars Mission

    SUMMARY: Russian space officials have announced their intentions to send human explorers to Mars by 2015. Hoping for International support to help fund the $20 billion budget, managers have already planned out the mission basics. They're estimating that two ships would travel to Mars and deliver three people to the surface for 440 days while three others would remain in orbit. Obviously this is completely preliminary in nature, and officials from NASA or the ESA have yet to comment if they would support this Russian initiative.

    I'd love to see Energiya brought back--but could take Angara 100

    It must be a very old story, because if you look at how the Russian Space Agency has progressed from 1997-NOW, last 9 years, I don't know how anyone could seriously believe they're even remotely capable of sending a manned Mission to Mars within a further 9 years, NOW-2015, even with an inordinate amount of help from wherever they can get it!
