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.
