Abstract

This project analyzes the Moon and Mars in terms of their potential as the destination for the next major NASA mission. The sites are first compared on their abilities to garner public support to secure original funding. The long term economic stability of each mission is then discussed to protect their continued existence. Finally, the future prospects for each base are addressed. It is determined that establishing a colony on Mars would be the best course for NASA to pursue.
