Space exploration needs to permanently remove its elitist status and become something which "the people" want and need. The level of scientific literacy needs to be raised everywhere. This will be VERY difficult but is necessary. What "I" want is the wrong question - it's what "we" need and want. Until we get there, what my personal "pet project" for space exploration is merely a whim.
