Should the US prioritize a mission to the Moon or Mars?
NASA must make a choice over which mission makes the most sense given its limited budget.
Those in favor of going to Mars say that a mission there will allow us to answer fundamental questions about humanity and science. Not only that, a manned mission to Mars will motivate people to strive for greater heights.
The United States landed on the Moon when we thought it was impossible. We will rise to the challenge of landing on Mars.
1969, going to the moon. And suddenly we stopped there. No more next moon mission.
Those in favor of going to the Moon say that it’s a more realistic next step given our current technological capabilities. Going to the Moon would allow for immediate benefits and could be a stepping stone to further exploration.
