THE plan to send humans to Mars includes a one-year layover in orbit around the moon in the late 2020s, Fox News reports. Greg Williams, NASA’s deputy associate administrator for policy and plans at the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, revealed that NASA wants to build a “deep-space gateway” around the moon that would serve as the testing ground for the first Mars missions.

According to BGR, NASA actually wants to make sure that the round trip to Mars, a 1000-day endeavour, is planned carefully during the time. The moon orbit base also would serve as the staging point for the mission, and the spacecraft that will carry humans to Mars for the first time will be launched from the moon.
