Submission + - Russia and Europe to Send Man to Mars? (discovery.com)

astroengine writes: "Speaking to reporters at an air show near Moscow on Wednesday, European Space Agency head Jean-Jacques Dordain said his agency and Roskosmos (the Russian space agency) would "carry out the first flight to Mars together."

Naturally, there's no promise of a target date for a Mars landing, but Dordain's announcement underscores an important fact: to get humanity to Mars, international collaboration will be desirable. Perhaps even essential."
