The Race to Mars

In the Race to Explore Mars, it is pretty clear.

Mars Rover Opportunity Arrives at Victoria Crater

Robots win.

The vision of exploring the universe on human feet suffers from a lack imagination, does it not?

Depends what you want. Lunokhods -- the Soviet lunar rovers -- provided lots of scientific material, but the Appollo program -- the first man on moon -- set certain psychological advantage. Look at the sci-fi novels -- the real dream is living on Mars, not merely looking at it. Images risk becoming absolutely inferior after getting first personal experiences from being there.
