    There's no longer money available for any future space exploration !
    Why even consider it ?
    Further more there won't be any money it the far distant future for any serious attempt at space exploration.
    However if were playing fantasy here like we really could do this, I would go with Mars.

    no money for nasa

    Establish a base on the Moon, and explore Mars in person. And while this is happening, we should also strive to land on asteroids and develop an asteroid-mining industry.

    And once that's all done, we should try and visit the gas planets and Pluto!

    After that, my descendants will decide where they want to be stereotypical tourists next.

    Ultimately Mars and beyond, but an asteroid would be good enough for now. Assuming we don't have to beg the Russians for a ride.

    A big part of the failure of both Moore's Law and our economy is that we are not striving for anything of significance anymore, as a society. Space exploration and military research are what has driven 90% of the civilian innovations and tech that we enjoy today.

    It was a toss-up between Mars & Other. Even if NASA has to get private funds, I'd love to see a manned mission to Mars or to one of the large asteroids!
    I'm still watching Voyager 1 & 2 (I remember when they were launched)! Can't wait to see if they can really make it out of the heliosheath!

    stay home and spend the money on new water and sewer lines nation wide. Or alternative technologies for water disinfectants so we don't have to drink bleach and ammonia in our water. The money would be spent more wisely on Americans on earth.

    we should establish a permanent base on the moon and terraform mars before we do any other exploring. we can capture a few small asteroids and study them after we put em in lunar orbit.

    I would pick Mars--unless you're talking about a near-earth asteroid. Like Asteroid 3715 Cruithne (KREEN-yah)

    Probably what's closest.

    On the other hand, we seem to know what's in space better than what we know about the ocean floor. I'd find that much more interesting.

    I heard she's already trying to figure out how to cut it's heating-power in half! Wouldn't surprise me. Plus she advocated going there to study its surface.......at night so it wouldn't be hot at that time!

    In the 60's, liberals were bemoaning the fact that the price tag for putting men on the moon would be $20 billion. They told us how foolish it was and how much better it would be if the money were spent on feeding poor people, education, healthcare etc. Well, now that NASA funds have been redirected to feeding poor people, education, healthcare etc., the next place astronauts should explore is a nation more willing to spend its money "foolishly".
