NASA is developing the capabilities needed to send humans to an asteroid by 2025 and Mars in the 2030s. In an Exploration Forum at NASA Headquarters in Washington on April 29, 2014, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and officials from across the agency detailed NASA's Human Path to Mars.

Mars is a rich destination for scientific discovery and robotic and human exploration as we expand our presence into the solar system. Its formation and evolution are comparable to Earth, helping us learn more about our own planet's history and future. Mars had conditions suitable for life in its past. Future exploration could uncover evidence of life, answering one of the fundamental mysteries of the cosmos: Does life exist beyond Earth?

Presentations from the event are available here:
