First humans on Mars. Dr. Robert Zubrin from The Mars Society

When will the first people step on Mars? Will it be by 2030? And why should we go to Mars when we have so many environmental or social issues here, on Earth?

I talked with a true legend, Dr. Robert Zubrin from The Mars Society, to answer these questions. Robert is a founder of the organization I’m also coming from but also a very known author (“Case for Mars” or more recent “Case for Space”) and … inventor. Yes, he’s got many exciting patents on his account. Robert was also a person who fostered the path into the space sector for… Elon Musk at the beginning of his career in 2001.
