Current NASA plan: manned landing on Phobos by 2033, and on Mars by 2039

NASA's current plan is a manned mission to the Martian moon Phobos by 2033, and perhaps a landing on the Red Planet itself in 2039 or so.

This saddens me. I'd always assumed that I'd be alive for the first landing on Mars. I certainly looked forward to it. And while it's certainly possible that I'll be around by then, I'd be 83 when we get to Phobos and 89 when we land on the Martisn surface.

Not sure I'll make it.

Oh, well. I did get to watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon.
