Planetary orbital position is important for man going to mars. That said when is the next optimal window for going?

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

For SpaceNut ... the site you showed us is quite interesting, but it didn't seem able to answer the question you posed....

I asked Mr. Google to be more specific, and got this:

Google Inquiry: When is the next Mars launch window
Result top item:
Launch windows
Year    Launch    Spacecraft (launched or planned)
2016    Mar 2016    ExoMars TGO
2018    May 2018    InSight
2020    Jul 2020 – Sep 2020    Rosalind Franklin rover, Mars 2020 rover, Mars Hope orbiter, 2020 Chinese Mars Mission
2022    2022-2023    Mars Orbiter Mission 2 (MOM-2)

It sure looks as though the third quarter of 2020 is going to be eventful!

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

The Mars Helicopter will launch with the Mars 2020 rover on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket in July 2020 from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. When it lands in Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021, the rover will also be the first spacecraft in the history of planetary exploration with the ability to accurately retarget its point of touchdown during the landing sequence.
