Oak Ridge National Laboratory Will Help With A Manned Mission To Mars WBIR-TV

President Bush says he wants an American to go to Mars and some East Tennessee scientists may help get them there. “Someday, someone’s going to be the first person to set foot on Mars. Who’s that gonna be? That’s up for grabs. Who wants to go? If I wasn’t so old I would compete for the job!” says ORNL Researcher Sherrell Greene. He admits, he gets a little giddy thinking about a trip to the red planet, a trip he thinks is difficult, but doable. “Dreams are dreams because you have to stretch,” he says. “They’re not within our grasp. Can this dream become reality? Yes, it will require persistence and dedication, we’ll have to stick to it.”
