‘Visitors on Mars within 20 years’ The Huddersfield Daily Examiner

WE’LL have landed on Mars by the year 2023. That was the prediction from one of Russia’s most influential and respected spacemen during a visit to Huddersfield. Alexander Martynov gave two 90-minute presentations at Huddersfield University. They were based on his experiences with the Mir Space Station and the technology required for a manned mission to Mars. Now he is researching the possibility of landing cosmonauts on Mars.
