+ - The House wants a 'sustained human presence on the Moon and the surface of Mars'->

Submitted by MarkWhittington
MarkWhittington (1084047) writes "Politico reports in a June 18, 2013 story that House Republicans have added a Mars base to its demands for a lunar base in the draft 2013 NASA Authorization bill. Both the Bush era Constellation program and President Obama space plan envisioned eventual human expeditions to Mars. But if Politico is correct, the new bill will be the first time an official piece of legislation will call for permanent habitation of the Red Planet.

The actual legislative language states, “The [NASA] Administrator shall establish a program to develop a sustained human presence on the Moon and the surface of Mars.”"
