Let’s get ready to go to space to benefit Earth!
“By refocusing our space program on Mars, we can restore the sense of wonder and adventure in space exploration that we knew in the summer of 1969. We won the moon race; now it’s time for us to live and work on Mars, first on its moons and then on its surface.”
