From the Moon to Mars
After having successfully built a colony on the moon, Vasago Noir and Noir Industries is headed for Mars. With a newly designed ship and engines that should improve the travel time between the Moon and Mars a carefully picked crew will be the first to Mars and to explore the planet in person instead of via probes.
They will set up a base and see about recovering the probes that have been sent to Mars. Marking the spots with memorial markers so the material of the probes can be reclaimed. When asked Vasago told reporters, “If landing on the moon was a giant leap for mankind, then this is mankind jumping unaided from one side of the Grand Canyon to the other.”
They will be launching from the Kennedy Space Center Wednesday morning.
