President Barack Obama announced on 15 April 2010 that the proposed Asteroid Redirect Mission would be followed by a crewed mission in 2025. This statement was announced after his proposal of cancellation of the Constellation program in February 2010, whose main objective was the return humans to the Moon. Obama added that these deep space missions could serve as a technology development and testing for a human mission to Mars in the mid-2030s.
