Moon vs Mars
Why we should go to Mars not the Moon:
We should go to Mars instead of the Moon because we have already been to the moon multiple times. It is simply a waste of money to go into space to go to the moon just because we can. We already know so much about our Moon that going back to it is pointless. However, going to Mars would be a value for money as we have never been before. We would be better spending over 271 million pounds on going to a different planet to expand our knowledge rather than going somewhere we have already been lots of times.
Why we should go to the Moon not Mars:
Going to mars is to far-fetched. For a long time we will not have the technology to go to a different planet. It is simply easier to go to the Moon. It would cost less, and would expand our knowledge about the Moon. We know lots about Mars already so going to it would not help expand our knowledge. In fact it would just cost too much to go there and besides, we don't have the technology anyway.
