A concept image of a spacecraft powered by a fusion-driven rocket. In this image, the crew would be in the forward-most chamber. Solar panels on the sides would collect energy to initiate the process that creates fusion.
Humans are on their way to Mars! Or at least they will be by 2025 if University of Washington researcher, Dr. John Slough has his way. Dr. Slough and his team are working on a fusion powered rocket that could zoom astronauts to mars in as little as 30 days. Back on earth, that speed could take you from Seattle to Miami in 3 minutes. The rocket project is funded by NASA and being built right here in Redmond, Washington. The President can keep is asteroid, Ross Reynolds talks with Dr. Slough about this rocket to Mars.
