Mars Community Holds Out Hope While NASA HQ Backs Off From Mars

NASA MEPAG Report: Science Analysis of the November 3, 2005 Version of the Draft Mars Exploration Program Plan

"An MSR mission directly supports the eventual human exploration of Mars. Results from sample return will provide science and engineering data not readily obtainable by remote sensing or in-situ analysis. It further demonstrates "proof-of-concept" and learning relevant to the round-trip essential for human exploration of Mars. Similarly, it can provide the model for how to conduct an international human Mars exploration program. An MSR mission in the 2016/2018 opportunity will provide the public with a tangible demonstration that the United States is taking steps towards human exploration beyond the moon."
