2010 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Moon, Mars and Beyond

One of the hottest topics of recent years for the manned program at NASA is whether the agency should return to the Moon, where we have already been, or proceed straight to Mars. Central to the subject are thorny issues that relate to science, launch hardware, International competition, national security, shrinking budgets, and political will. Join Hayden Director Neil deGrasse Tyson as he hosts and moderates five experts on space exploration for the tenth annual Asimov Panel Debate.
