    Robotics. Why waste money launching people into space with nowhere to go? Robots could easily build a fully functional moonbase for a fraction of the cost [and difficulty] of doing it via manned launches. We currently have the computer know how to pull this off. A mission to mars would be far simpler by this method. Robotically build a moonbase and launch pad in advance, then a station on mars. Unforeseen difficulties would not be politically, or economically disasterous.
