I agree with several comments that to ensure survival of the species we need to colonize the Moon and Mars as soon as possible. This will require that we improve our launch efficieny (space elevator or EM rail launcher) and put people in harms way to push the science forward in self-sustaining eco systems.
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process.
Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
