In brief: NASA asks for moon, Mars exploration ideas

NASA issued a request for information Tuesday, soliciting ideas from individuals and organizations on exploration plans for the moon, Mars and beyond.

Sponsored by NASA's Exploration Systems Mission Directorate, the request seeks input covering a broad range of disciplines, from lunar science activities, to operational activities and technology research efforts that might assist in preparing for future human missions to Mars and other planets.

NASA says the goal is to collect a wide variety of perspectives on future human and robotic activities on the moon. Eventually, a multidisciplinary lunar exploration strategy will be developed.
