more robotic probes for sure. Mars, Titan, Europa, Venus -- there are a lot of fascinating places in the solar system which we'd get a lot of scientific value and public interest from exploring.

moon base, maybe someday. people on Mars, maybe someday. for the near term, though, robotic probes can provide the "romance" while also giving us valuable science on the bodies to which we send them.

It seems intuitively obvious to me, which means that it might be wrong. -- Chris Torek
