A base on the Moon and humans on Mars

While the recent robotic missions to the planets, Mars in particular, have yielded spectacular results, there's nothing quite like getting humans out there. When I was young and space exploration was new and exciting (and "Star Trek," "Star Wars," and "Cosmos" were in the air!), it seemed like a base on the Moon and humans on Mars would be our next steps. I still hope to see these things happen in the coming decades.
