Should Humans Explore the Moon or Mars Next?

Date TBA

Should humans return to the moon before exploring Mars? Does focusing on the moon first help humans get to Mars or does it take resources away from Mars exploration? Should humans even bother exploring Mars at all and just focus on our nearest neighbor for the future of space exploration? Our panel of industry experts and communicators debate whether humans should focus our sites on the Moon or Mars or if somehow, you can do both at the same time.
