Humans on Mars
After driving a short distance from their landing site, two explorers stop to inspect a robotic lander and its small rover in this artist's concept of a future Mars mission. This stop also allows the crew to check out the life support systems of their rover and space suits within walking distance of the base.
The Vision for Space Exploration calls for NASA to return to the moon and eventually explore Mars and beyond.
