Historic first landing on the Moon July 20, 1969. We have not landed any where else since. Next landing should be on Mars, the red planet. That would be a historic day and thrilling to see man kind land on another planet. With better equipment and cameras available, it should be quite amazing to see transmission from the red planet.
A question to ponder - if on a Mars mission a pregnant woman gave birth on Mars would her child be a Martian? Imagine him saying later on, I was born on Mars :) He would be an alien from another planet, that is human!
