The Mars Space Race

The Russian/American space race is back as earlier today, President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin released a statement saying that Russia is going to launch a Mars Colonisation mission in 2019.

This will beat NASA and SpaceX with a $1.5 billion mission set for 2020.

Not much is known yet about the details however it is known that Vladimir Putin plans to send an unmanned exploration shuttle first before any colonisation attempts are made.
