All this week, Marketplace Tech looks at the near future of tech — so let’s forget traveling with warp drives and worm holes for a second. What’s coming in the next decade of space exploration? Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson speaks to NASA engineer Adam Steltzner, who navigated the incredibly challenge of landing the Mars Curiosity Rover. Steltzner says the next ten years will be about getting humans into deep space to mine asteroids and preparing a human Mars mission. Also on the horizon?Looking for life on Jupiter’s moon, Europa — with a bit of team work, of course.
