Summary:
American entrepreneur, Dennis Tito, says he wants to launch a manned mission to Mars in January 2018, but researchers at NASA and Stanford University argue that it may be better to visit the mysterious Martian moon, Phobos first. They're developing a team of robots they call "hedgehogs" to explore Phobos in the belief that a trip to the Martian moon will make a subsequent mission to Mars safer and more productive.
