NASA has announced plans to send a manned spacecraft to fun size Mars by the year 2021.
“Fun size Mars is the perfect destination when you don’t have the time to send a mission to regular Mars”, said NASA spokesman Brent Sauhund. “At less than half the distance the funds required won’t ruin our planned full mission to regular Mars at a later date. Or our dinner. And at less than half the size of regular Mars it hopefully will only be home to half as many monsters.”
NASA, currently basking in the publicity generated by photos of the dwarf snack planet Pluto Pup, has no plans for a mission to king size Mars.
