Using a yet-to-be Crew Exploration Vehicle, the first piloted mission to the Moon is listed as early as 2015, with the goal of living and working there for increasingly longer periods of time. "Spacecraft assembled and provisioned on the Moon could escape its far lower gravity using far less energy, and thus, far less cost."  
Mars Has Hydrogen Peroxide In Atmosphere - SpaceDaily  Clancy gained telescope time when Mars was closest to the sun, meaning the planet warmed, said project team member Brad Sandor. Warmth produced more water vapor in the atmosphere. Hydrogen peroxide is produced by the action of sunlight on water. When past searches for the chemical came up empty, researchers wondered if their atmospheric models were wrong. So the project could have given new life to the models or helped to undermine their credibility. Hydrogen peroxide exists in trace amounts in the Martian atmosphere -- in doses as low as ozone-eating chlorofluorocarbons on Earth.
