NASA now plans the first manned flight to Mars only at the end of the next decade

In addition to plans to land a spacecraft on the Moon in a year, NASA does not abandon the idea of ​​​​launching a spacecraft to Mars. True, here you will have to wait many times longer.

NASA now plans the first manned flight to Mars only

If earlier NASA spoke about such plans, naming the approximate dates in the early 2030s, now the dates have shifted to the end of the same decade.

The goal of a flight to Mars was first announced by President Obama. And then we thought it would be around 2033. But that was a dozen years ago. And now a more realistic goal is the end of the decade of the 2030s. But a lot will depend on new technologies, the ability to support people for a long period of time all the way. Part of that will depend on how fast we can get to the moon with the crew. I think it will be supported by Congress. New technologies to get us there faster. That’s why we set a goal at the end of the 2030s decade to go to Mars

Flight to Mars is much more difficult than to the Moon for many reasons, but the main one is very commonplace – time. It takes more than six months to fly to the Red Planet, which brings to the fore the problem of radiation. And if we talk about a mission with a landing on a planet, then the problems become much greater, since landing on Mars and then taking off from it is much more difficult than in the case of the Moon due to the large difference in gravitational influence.

Google Password Manager is pretty versatile as it allows you to sync all your saved passwords across mobile and desktop devices. Until now, the Chrome desktop browser used PINs and passwords to authenticate users before exposing stored data.

Now, if your computer (Windows and macOS) has an external or built-in biometric authentication system, such as a fingerprint scanner or a face scanner, you can use it to access data stored in the Chrome password manager.
