A 45% plurality of the poll participants urge that the NASA human program return humans to the Moon and build a lunar base while 28% of the survey respondents urge NASA to seek to place the first humans on Mars. Rounding out the double-digit input was 13% responding favorably to chat NASA's mission to build the first space-based solar power stations.
Fewer participants urged a human survey of the asteriods (5%) and fewer suggested continuation of a priority of sending human expeditions to the International Space Station (2%). Meanwhile a mere 5% suggested halting the human program and going exclusively with unmanned probes throughout the solar system.
Four hundred and eighty four participated in the on-line survey the past few weeks. The results will be reported to the presidential commission now reviewing the NASA's future direction.
