People will be able to land on Mars in 20 years, said British astronaut Type Peak.

In his opinion, an important role was played by private companies in the space industry. In particular, the astronaut believes that the recent launch of a heavy launch vehicle, the Falcon Heavy, made by the company Elon musk SpaceX, marked a new era in space exploration.

Rush also expressed confidence that the international project to build a manned lunar station (Deep Space Gateway) will be the key for the future of space exploration.

«We are entering a new era of space exploration. I think it (the landing of men on Mars — Approx.ed.) happens at the end of 2030-ies,» — said the astronaut, quoted by The Independent.

Peak participated in major space expeditions ISS-46/47. On the International space station, he spent 186 days.Best space photos of the year© Photo : NASA, ESA, Hubble, HLA; and Jesús M.
