Space Exploration: today, tomorrow, and… the day after

Missions to explore the solar system date back to the beginning of the space activity, since the discovery of new Worlds has always had an overpowering appeal – the same one that pushed our ancestors to find new lands as well as the traces of our past. But space probes do have something more – they can unveil the secrets of those distant and apparently unattainable worlds that may have hosted life in the past, or that may host life in future. In order to plan this, we need visionary minds. The Moon, Mars, comets and asteroids are waiting for us – if not today, tomorrow or the day after. Our future choices on where and when to go must be a collective effort and should not only involve advanced industrial Countries – such as Europe and the United States – but it should also allow the entire humanity to achieve an impossible dream and to reach a balance that is harbinger of wellness and piece.
