At no other time in history have we had the technology, the know-how, and the public enthusiasm to get humans to Mars.

Orion is NASA’s spaceship that will take humans into deep space, but it needs to be a part of a larger system to go to Mars.

‘The time is now’: Lockheed Martin reveals plan for manned Mars base camp that will orbit the red planet in 2028 with landing shuttles to ferry crew members to the surface.

Lockheed Martin’s concept is called Mars Base Camp and it’s our idea of how to send humanity’s first crewed mission to Mars in about a decade.

How would Mars Base Camp work? It would launch using NASA’s SLS megarocket. Four Solar panels to produce power. Two cryogenic engines and fuel tanks. Two habitats and a Living space for astronauts. Orion capsule used as command deck

The Mars Base Camp orbiting outpost could give scientists/astronauts the ability to operate rovers and drones on the surface in real time – helping us better understand the Red Planet and answer fundamental questions:

We think we can launch this is about a decade, and Orion is already being built.

Where did we come from? Where are we going? Are we alone?
