Summary
Will a human mission to the planet Mars ever become a reality? In this Scientific American Frontiers special, host Alan Alda explores the question with the space scientists and aerospace engineers helping to make it happen. Find out how a Mars mission can be affordably accomplished and why it's so important to explore the "red planet" in the first place.
