The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has revealed the new manned version of Mars rovers and is likely to launch it in 2020. The researchers were inspired by Hollywood movies like Tron to create this new generation of rovers.

Shanon and Marc Parker have created these rovers in a span of less than five months. A report by Pulse Headlines revealed that the new type of manned Mars rovers will be around 11-feet tall, 13-feet wide and 24-feet long, and will six wheels and an alien design, a report by Pulse Headlines revealed.

The Parker brothers built the new rovers from scratch. The rover is like an SUV that consists of a mock lab where the astronauts can conduct their experiments. The new design of the manned rovers will be revealed soon by NASA.

The inSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission is scheduled to be launched on May 5, 2018. However, it will arrive on the Red Planet on November 28, 2018, and transmit the newly-collected data regarding the emergence of Mars and how it developed over time, to Earth.

According to reports, the astronauts would be sent to deep space farther than Earth's orbit by 2019 with the help of NASA's Space Launch System.

The researchers would also analyse the Earth's conditions and disturbing natural calamities taking place in its ecosystem using NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar. The space agency will also be carrying out other missions in the future like the NASA Asteroid Redirect Mission. It is scheduled to take place in 2021 when a sample will be collected from an asteroid.

The Science World Report revealed that the agency also plans to carry out the Psyche mission by 2022, in which the unique, metallic asteroid, Psyche, the one that orbits Sun between Mars and Jupiter will be examined. Researchers believe that this would provide them with more data about how planets are formed.
