Robonauts or Men – Which Will Step Foot on Mars First ?

Mars will probably be the next giant leap for mankind – but it’s not certain that the feet that step onto it will belong to a man, or woman.

Maybe it will be one small step for Robonauts and one giant leap for A.I

The development of the robonaut, humanoid robots to go to Mars in our place, is well underway. Some experts say they’re cheaper, safer and more effective than sending humans to the red planet.

So will a living, breathing person ever set foot on Mars?
