Mr Aldrin's plan involves using the moons of Earth and Mars essentially as pitstops for people travelling to and from the Red Planet - a trip that will take about six months each way.

"You can't afford to do them all," he said of competing visions. "Because it's using up the budget that we've got and we're going nowhere."
