Description

Franklin Chang Daz is a pioneer. As a child, he dreamed of going into space. As an adult, he made his wish come true. Diaz was the first naturalized U.S. citizen from Latin America to become an astronaut. After making seven trips into space, the MIT-educated Daz retired from NASA and set his sights on speeding up the journey to Mars. A trip using chemical-powered rockets takes nine monthsDaz has developed a plasma-propelled engine that he says will cut the journey down to just over one month. We visit Ad Astra Rocket Company in Webster, Texas, to see the project Daz has been working on for 40 years.
