All of the planets and moons have interesting things about them. Given that we've barely scratched the surface, I'm happy to learn about anything. I, of course, would love to see people landing on Mars and exploring and hopefully discovering evidence of past life, but I think places like Venus and Europa and a few other moons have many interesting secrets to reveal, probably more so than Mars.

I think Jupiter's moon, Europa, is a real good target for a landed mission (to drill 30kms through the ice sheet to see what's beneath)...

It's got to Mars in the near term to get practiced and ready, then on to Pluto because it would be a distance challenge and maybe get Pluto's dignity back!

With Mars being a settled station the moons Enceladus and Europa would be my next destination, not seeking past life but life in the oceans.

For me, Jupiter. Since those storms must be intense. Might tell us what our own planet might succumb to in the distant future. Much like an ice age can start when snow fails to melt in summer and gradually grows, maybe these storms started as little dust devils which eroded much of the sandy surface and took off into a permanent maelstrom.

My choice is back to our own moon!
NASA could construct a “home base” there and perhaps station a long range telescope to further study even farther, the outer reaches of space.
How far out can we look?
Far out!!
Given we’ve been there many times, I believe it’s doable and would be more cost effective for now.
Plus, this venture could lead to more of us, “non-astronaut” citizens the chance to go there ourselves some day.
I’d LEAP at it!!

For me it would be little demoted Pluto. I grew up in a time when it was a planet, so to me I suppose it always will be in my heart.

Exploration of "Venus" helps us better understand our own planet.
Both the Earth and Venus are believed to have been born about 4.6 billion years ago. At the time, there may have been oceans on Venus like that found on the Earth. However, Venus today has no oceans and is covered by dense atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide.

My favorite planet is Gliese 436b, since it is a an extraordinary planet with a burning temperature but a surface of ice.

I'd like to see Mars explored because there could be life existing there as there's been a prediction of water being there so it's the best place to start for looking for life in space.

I've always loved Jupiter the most, although it would probably be impossible to explore the way Mars can be explored, it still would be interesting to learn more about it

Oh, Jupiter for me! I just came across (in old papers from my parents' house) a project I did in Grade 5 -- 50-odd years ago, and I am still fascinated by it. Mind you, it's a long ways away and very big, so I guess I might not ever get to hear most of the information found. Don't care -- still think it has lots of mysteries to be solved!

Jupiter is high on my list for exploration. We know so little about its surface. I'd imagine that its atmosphere alone presents many difficulties for equipment.

Definitely think the next planet we should explore is NEPTUNE! The last time we visited was over 30 years ago with Voyager 2's flyby. Although this was indeed an amazing feat, we've never gone back to study the Neptunian system in detail. So far, all other subsequent studies have been limited space telescope or ground based observations. Therefore, a flagship orbiter mission to Neptune would be amazing! Neptune's odd magnetism, intense & fast storm systems, heat output, chemistry, rings, moons remain a big question mark. Moreover, it's moon Triton is a captured KBO and might hold a subsurface ocean! Last but not least, we've all been in awe by the detailed beauty the Juno and Cassini-Huygens missions to Jupiter and Saturn (respectively) have provided. Imagine what we will see with Neptune! Currently, a mission to the ice giant would take almost 3 decades before even reaching Neptune. That's a long time and I don't know about everyone else, but I want to see a mission to Neptune in my lifetime! Neptune, definitely Neptune should be next! 🔵🛰
