    Hi, I saw a film about Pluto the other day, and it took many years for a probe to get to the planet, New Horizons, I've forgotten the mission profile and all that now. But with the challenge of traveling to the planets in the solar system, some sort of research is needed to increase the time...

    Discussion Journey to Mars

    Hi, I don't expect this to go anywhere, but since the new government moved in recently. Does anyone think the program will continue under this government term ahead? The next budget will certainly continue the webb telescope and the construction of the space launch system. My view is that...
