I expect from the EXO Mars mission to be led in a direction in which it what we search is coming together in the whole continent. It will a way for every European researcher to work as a team. We all have to work together to make it a success and showing the world that Europe is not hidden in the shadow of any other powerful entity in the domain of space. This will our goal, using communication on the topic all over Europe to let everyone know that this mission is about to put us before the eyes of the world. Like this we could all focus on the same project, wherever we are in Europe. I don't want Europe to be a simple country, but a team made of multiple agents able to lead the way to a better future. We are the continent where ideas are introduced in the first places in term of human rights for example, so let make it on the space level. Communicating, inviting europeans to participate as one big team. What I would like to find there, on Mars, is what we can learn and bring to Europe in term of science advancement that could help us for our environmental issues. All of this made transparent to let everyone know what's going on and let the lobbys out of the picture.

The race to Mars is very important for the EU and its citizens. It unifies us, it gives a good eample for what the EU stays and it gives us the possibility to show what the EU can achieve! BUT, we have to be wise and not let profit-thinking lead us. If we go to Mars and see what is going on there, we have to calculate with many risks what could happen if we are there. I epect from the Mars mission, that they will maybe find some useful ressources under the surface of the planet, so we could stop take all from our planet.

I am all for scientific advancment, and that could be one of great ideas Europe needs to stay united.* There is a problem of people being less rational (flat earthers, no vacine society, no global warming) * I think that it is more important to focus on science which have close benefit to human life: GMO foods, genetical medicine, auto prostetic, Advanced AI use, computing, energy, close economy (better recycling), better matterial chemical. It is hard to tell if Mars colony is near future and how benefitial it is for common folk. * at least it is good excuse to make ground research on many subjects, "space technology" generally sneak in our lives for better * i am more concerned to not be hit by giant asteroid. So LIGO is cool. * Space exploration could be more about research itself and increasing interest in science in general. * Generally Europe could be made more scientific and rational. But with though about progress of common people condition, not just making lab rats happy.
