At the rate the world has been popping off rockets, I'm suprised there isn't  some type of air traffic control.

/that I've heard of.

You're failing to account for the earth and mars movement around the sun. So technically it's getting several thousand miles closer each day. Unless we passed the closest point in which case we're getting further away

Concidering the launch window is opening soon earth is atm "catching up" and getting closer to mars

But this is realitive.  If nasa can put a probe up on a tower and say it is closer. I just took the frame of reference out one step, while you took it another step

We are all right from our frame of reference
