  1. Great that NASA is reaching out to the general community for feedback.
    Solar System exploration, and especially Mars, will not only create a laboratory for the invention of new products for use on Earth, but will also rekindle the collective imagination of our country about solidarity and dreaming about reaching out into the heavens.
