Using the lessons learned from the mission "Apollo" and robotic missions sent to Mars, NASA scientists and engineers study the problems and dangers associated with landing on other planets.
The new technology is called "vertical takeoff - a vertical landing." According to the group, operating within the design and technology of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Florida, the best approach to planning involves landing on a predetermined spot landing area.
Scientists say that such platforms will significantly reduce the level of emitted into the air during landing regolith debris and ensure a safe landing for the participants of the human space missions.
Although prior to the first manned mission to Mars, it might take many years to develop the landing sites should start now, researchers say.
