How Could We Get To Mars In Only 28 Hours?

Hey there! Welcome to Life Noggin. Everyone always wants to get to Mars. Unfortunately, the journey would be a long one, taking hundreds of days of travel with our current technology.

Once crossed, the other side comes fully into view with your old home now receding into that shimmering spherical window. But […]
