Russian Mars Mission

Russian Academic Claims Lead

In an echo of the 1960s space race, one of Russia's leading academics said Tuesday that Russia is already ahead in efforts to land people on Mars. While President George W. Bush's 2004 call for a manned U.S. mission to Mars has an undetermined target date, Lev Zelyony, director of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said Russia will be ready by 2025 at the latest.
