In 1969, NASA shelved the long-planned manned exploration of Mars in favor of the less expensive Space Shuttle program. But what if preparations had been made for a Mars expedition, just before the sinking economy of the 1970s doomed its extravagant goals? What if one astronaut's childhood dream is crushed, but not quite killed? 'Mission to Mars' shows the ill-fated 1977 journey that might have happened.
