Should the US prioritize a mission to the Moon or Mars?

47 years ago, Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, putting humans on the Moon for the first time. Following that, the United States conducted five more manned missions to the Moon, and we haven’t been back since 1972. Some people are saying we should go back to the Moon, others are pushing for a manned mission to Mars.
