Extraterrestrial life has always remained a fascination for inhabitants of earth especially the scientists. While NASA and other space agencies spend billions of dollars to catch hold of any unknown or mysterious signals coming from the far-fetched galaxies, any instance of alien life hasn’t been found yet. Speculations and rumors however, remain an interesting science gossip. Earth is not vanquishing anytime soon. It may take billions of years for the planet to be completely annihilated, but given the rate at which humankind is exhausting resources and violating principles of nature, it is quite likely that we might need an alternative planet. How much we need to worry about that in 2017 is open for debate.

In addition to these ideas, the concept of space tourism has gathered tremendous pace and publicity. The red planet Mars remains to be the most intriguing planetary neighbor of earth and several missions have attempted to dock the surface of Mars or revolve around it gathering essential data. Private enterprises such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Boeing, and Virgin Galactic have already started working successfully on space tourism.

Mars voyage will include one-year layover in moon orbit

Amidst these ventures, comes a startling revelation that 1.3 lakh Indians have booked tickets for a flight to Mars through world’s biggest space agency, NASA. It is for the mission Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport or InSight. This 728-day mission would launch on May 2018 and land on Mars on November 2018.

24,29,807 people have submitted their applications.

United States:  6,76,773

China: 2,62,752

India: 1,38,899

United Kingdom: 96,241

An online boarding pass will be provided to the ones who have registered their names for the mission.

NASA has issued a statement that, “by using sophisticated geophysical instruments, InSight will delve deep beneath the surface of Mars, detecting the fingerprints of the processes of terrestrial planet formation, as well as measuring the planet’s vital signs”.

Euphoria of excitement and fear will be accompanied too in this scintillating maiden trip to the Red planet. It would be acutely unsettling and stupefying to land successfully on the planet with which Earth has a 20-minute time delay. This means it would take approximately half hour to know whether the space passengers have landed safely, probably one of the toughest half hours in the human history.
