NASA administrator Charles Bolden says the space agency is going to be working together with Israel on reaching the planet Mars in the next 20 years.
Bolden spoke at Bar Ilan University earlier this week about NASA’s journey to Mars, and tonight (Tuesday, June 7) he’s slated to receive an honorary doctorate from the university.
Approximately 250 experiments take place in each 6-month expedition on the International Space Station, Bolden said.
Now the NASA administrator has told Bar Ilan University that he is talking with the Israel Space Agency about participating in those experiments.
Bolden says the leadership at the U.S. space agency believes life existed on Mars at one time, and that it was very similar to that of Earth. Today that is not the case, ho wever, and NASA is trying to figure out why.
