I want to see us gain a positive command of the inner planetary system -- deep level explorations of everything from Mercury out to the Asteroid Belt. In tandem there should be strong movement beyond that into the sphere of the outer planets to visit and catalog bodies and locations heretofor untouched or only imaged in short duration flybys. So, by the decade of the 2040's (which I probably won't see personally) I would like us to have a solid understanding of all the different types of bodies found in the Solar System. Because once we have "scoped out" the neighborhood, then we can start seriously planning on moving out.....
