If you think that living in Mars is next to impossible, then NASA might just prove you wrong.

For several decades, scientists across the globe has dedicated countless years in pursuit of finding life in Mars, even going as far as planning for humans to migrate to the red planet. And their relentless pursuit may just bear fruit soon, since NASA has already released a detailed plan of how they are going to send humans to Mars in the coming decades. The plan involves sending humans to Mars and have them permanently reside in the planet. According to NASA, “Unlike Apollo, we will be going to stay”.

NASA’s plans involves three major steps, with the ultimate goal of human habitation in Mars. The first step, called Earth Reliant exploration, involves research using technologies such as 3D printers and life support systems. Once successful, the plan will progress to the second stage, dubbed as Proving ground, wherein the agency will test components beyond low-earth orbit. Finally, in the last stage, NASA plans to take humans into Mars’ orbit before landing in its surface. The agency projects that this will take place in 2030s.

Slowly but surely, NASA is moving towards its goal, and a space flight to Mars might not be far from reality anymore.
