(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - How about a honeymoon on Mars?

Millionaire Dennis Tito wants to send married couples on an out-of-this-world trip after they say "I do."

The couples wouldn't actually land on the red planet, but just zip by before returning to Earth.

The former NASA engineer, who was also the first space-tourist, is confident the idea will fly, and hopes to launch the mission in five years.

NASA is not involved in the project.

The trip would last a little more than 16 months, and the couple would live in an area about half the size of an RV, along with using a private rocket and capsule.
