    The choices for Mars missions are not limited to either a one-way or a flags-and-footprints mission. A hybrid would be the Earth Return Option (ERO) where the crew had sufficient supplies, shielding, and artificial gravity so that they could choose to extend their stay beyond an Earth return window. This would prevent the need for a crew rotation thereby saving lots of money or launch more crew and grow the base faster.
