Van Feng is the manager of the International Space Station Transportation Integration Office, which takes advantage of the station's relatively close proximity to Earth and its microgravity environment to test technologies and other things in preparation for the long journey to Mars. Because the station is really just a stone's throw away (about 250 miles above), things can be tested, brought back for evaluation, tweaked and tested again on a later mission. The human system is also being tested to help prepare astronauts for the arduous round trip to the Red Planet. The goal is safe and reliable systems for deep space travel.
