    The Mars rover Curiositiy was launched on November 11th, last year. It will arrive at Mars on August 5th this year. This info, and lot's of other Mars stuff, is on the NASA Mars exploration website. This is using the minimal energy path, which is about the most feasible path with current technology.

    Sorry, I don't have any infomation on the biology. I do know that there have been experiments with lower animals, but this has never happened with humans. It's quite likely that no one knows.

    Best wishes,
