A few small hitches
I hate to spoil the party, but as with every single Mars article ever written, a few things are being overlooked.  Purposefully or not.

"Astronauts Risk Blurred Vision After Months in Space"

http://articles.latimes.com/2011/sep/20/nation/la-na-blind-nasa-astronaut-20110921

"NASA Astronauts' Eyesight Damaged by Long Space Flights"

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/space-station-astronauts-eyesight-affected-long-stays-orbit/story?id=15904338

"Trip to Mars Would Turn Astronauts Into Weaklings"

"Well, we're blind and can't lift a finger -- but we made it!"

The problem is twofold.  The eyesight problem is fairly new (since the space station), so they're just starting to tackle that.  The muscle problem, however, has been known about for half a century and we're no close to solving it than running on a treadmill and lifting weights, and those just aren't enough.

I suggest we solve both of those first, THEN start writing "Mars Is Just Around The Corner" articles.
