About 6 months ago iirc. I think it takes about 7 or so to get there.


Edit: looks like it launched July 30th 2020.
Wow, i thought it took years to get to Mars, although i don't keep up on any of this.

Depends on where in orbit we both are / when its launched.
I remember when this thing launched and I thought that's gonna be cool in 6 years
Yup, between 6-8mos depending on orbit since it's not asymmetrical. Not too bad tbh. Definitely short enough for humans to make it based off what's we've seen in ISS. I'm not sure what Mars's gravity is like but I assume it's way better long term than none.
