Public Tells NASA Where to Go: Mars

A public survey conducted for NASA shows overwhelming support for Mars missions. Of the more than 54,000 people who responded to the online survey run by the Planetary Society, more than 90 percent ranked Mars exploration among the top five missions priorities. The survey results will be provided to National Research Council, which at NASA’s request is preparing a set of recommendations to guide the space agency’s spending on solar system exploration over the next decade.
