Boeing Engineers to Develop Rocket to Take Humans to Mars

Boeing Engineers to Develop Rocket to Take Humans to Mars

After having launched space rover Curiosity to the Mars, researchers at NASA are now planning to send people on the red planet. Work has begun at Michoud Assembly Facility to find ways by which Mars could be made a reachable planet.

It has been reported that the Boeing engineers have been given the responsibility to built 70-ton heavy-lift rocket. The rocket thus created will be used for deep space missions like the Mars mission. During the manufacturing process, staff of the Boeing will be doubled. Boeing will be hiring contractors and subcontractors for the development of the rocket.

The foremost challenge in front of the engineers is to design the model of the rocket. Once the design is completed, the engineers will begin the work on the rocket. It is believed that the height of the new rocket will be more than 200 foot.

The engineers have a budget of $1.2 billion to develop the rocket, which will make it possible for the humans to reach Mars and explore it. Kimberly Robinson from the team of NASA engineer said, "We want to get to Mars like nobody's business. There have been a lot of discussion. We're waiting and listening very hard".
