Durations for Mars missions are likely to range from 1.5 to 3 years, with 12 to 24 months of that time spent in transit between the planets, based on present propulsion technologies and planetary orbital dynamics. In response to spaceflight, the human immune response becomes dysregulated, microbial pathogenicity can rise during spaceflight.
