I don't see how you can possibly get a peopled (manned) Earth-Mars vehicle launch for $500 million.
As the article states, Space Shuttle flights cost $1.5 billion each and never made it out of low earth orbit. Saturn V's (Apollo missions) were $1.9 billion each (adjusted for inflation) and only designed to fly for two weeks.
