To Boldly Go

A Mars Astronauted landing to start colonization. My second favorite objective would be to put an automated observatory and computer camera system to image with overlapping fields of view across 360 degrees on an asteroid for a full revolution. While in comm range we can due data dumps and later dumps when the planet comes back into comm range on the next orbit. Lets just see what other things we discover by accident. We'll do the science after the data is recovered. Maybe a collaborative public effort like SETI@HOME pioneered could be done.
