President of the United States
United States of America

Putting a man on Mars has been a lofty goal that we have put on the back shelf of some dusty closet. We need to pull it back out and take steps forward to accomplishing this mission.

Dr. Robert Zubrin wrote a book called "A Case for Mars", in his book he lays out a plausible plan at a reasonable cost to execute a mission to Mars. A plan that is still valid today and even more so since our technology is better and our science has improved on space exploration.

As Dr. Robert Zubrin states we need to "Give NASA a job that is worthy of a $16 billion/year space agency. Assign it the task of sending humans to Mars within a decade."- http://www.universetoday.com/9140/robert-zubrin-responds-to-your-questions/#ixzz37GKI1cvz.

This petition is to incite action on this specific task and motivate our Government, big and small businesses, and every other American to get behind a mission to Mars to put an American on the surface.

We the undersigned, call on the President of the United States to take action on putting an American on the surface of Mars by 2024.
