Human Missions to Phobos
On 1 September 2009, Dr Buzz Aldrin visited NASA Ames Research Center and met with Mars Institute chairman Dr Pascal Lee at the NASA Lunar Science Institute. They discussed future human missions to Near-Earth Objects and Phobos. Pascal's dog, Ping Pong, was delighted to meet the Apollo 11 astronaut. Deep space missions to NEOs and Phobos will help pave the way to Mars.
