RUSSIA has said it could beat the rest of the world to Mars after the country’s space agency revealed it is working on a spaceship that would get them to the Red Planet in just six weeks.
USA, the European Space Agency, China and Russia are currently embroiled in a new age space race to become the first to get to Mars.

As it stands, NASA says that it would take around three months to get humans to the planet with the technology it is developing but Russia’s potential super-fast spaceship could get there in half that time.

Vladimir Putin’s space agency, RosCosmos, originally started the project in 2010 but it has now been taken on by nuclear body Rosatom.
