Washington, DC  --  A human space mission to Mars is being pursued, according to an announcement by the Inspiration Mars Foundation.

Founded by private space traveler Dennis Tito, the foundation hopes to take advantage of a rare planetary alignment to fly one man and one woman on a 501 day journey around the Red Planet.

The mission will be built around proven transportation systems and will consist of a modified capsule with an inflatable habitat module deployed after launch.
