Reservation for future Mars mission has been the topic of the different popular social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter).
As of August 1, 2020, there are more than 2.5 million reservations already. Among the list of countries who signed up for the Mars mission. Here are the top 10 leading countries: Philippines, United States, India, Brazil, Mexico, United Kingdom, Thailand, Italy, Indonesia and Bangladesh, respectively.
Philippines has around 1.7 million reservations, United states only has more than 150 thousand while India has around 140 thousand.
According to the NASA Mars Exploration Program:
As currently envisioned, the lander launches in 2026 and arrives at Mars in 2028, touching down close to the Mars 2020 rover near Jezero Crater. It deposits the fetch rover, provided by ESA, on Mars to pick up the stashed samples and transfer them to the rocket.
Another option is for the Mars 2020 rover to retain some of its collected samples onboard and deliver those samples directly to the rocket. The rocket would then become the first ever to launch off another planet, transporting the sample return container into orbit around Mars.
That’s where a separate orbiting spacecraft, provided by ESA and also launched from Earth in 2026, would rendezvous with the sample return container and ferry it back to Earth. A NASA-provided payload on the orbiter would provide the capabilities needed to capture and contain the samples, placing them in an Earth entry vehicle that would land the samples safely on U.S. soil.
Once the samples are on our home planet, scientists plan to conduct detailed chemical and physical analysis in laboratories around the world to look for signs of past life on Mars and perform many other studies beyond the capabilities of instruments delivered to Mars.
If you have a plan to reserve your name too, it’s not too late to sign up for 2026 departure, and join the other more than 2 million people who signed up already. Sign up here, Future Mars Mission.
