The editorial board of the Korolev's Planet website begins to publish materials dedicated to manned exploration of Mars.
This time we offer to the website’s visitors a unique archive document “Manned Mission to Mars”. The document published in 1987 was approved by an outstanding scientist, academician, general designer of NPO Energia Valentin Petrovich Glushko, under whose direction the project of reusable Buran orbiter using heavy launch vehicle Energia was carried out.
Had it not been for the breakup of the USSR, we would have already visited Mars. But as it is, nobody has yet been there. So, we have a chance.
