A mission to Mars is something that many have been hoping for ever since the last explorers left the surface of the moon.
And now Nasa has stated that they intend to land humans on the red planet in 2035.
Chief scientist Dr Ellen Stofan, in a series of talks across the UK, outlined the plans of the agency to undertake such a mission in the next two decades.
Nasa's developments in recent years have revolved around ultimately sending people to Mars.
These include the creation of the Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket and the Orion capsule.
Both will be components of any future attempt to land humans on the surface of Mars before returning to Earth.
