      My absolute dream is to go to Mars, either as a quick geologic survey or to start a permanent settlement, but this is very unlikely! I’ll happily settle for leading the science team of a robotic mission one day: being the person who says “Let’s make our rover visit *that* rock tomorrow”. This could be on Mars but also Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, or Enceladus, one of Saturn’s, which both have oceans under their icy crusts and are even more exciting to scientists searching for extraterrestrial life.
