Description

This document communicates NASA’s strategy and progress to learn about the Red Planet, to inform us more about our Earth’s past and future, and may help answer whether life exists beyond our home planet. Together with NASA’s partners in academia and commercial enterprises, NASA’s vision is to pioneer Mars and answer some of humanity’s fundamental questions:

• Was Mars home to microbial life? Is it today?
• Could it be a safe home for humans one day?
• What can it teach us about life elsewhere in the cosmos or how life began on Earth?
• What can it teach us about Earth’s past, present, and future?
