Nowadays space technology is developing so rapidly as you can see. Personally, I support uncrewed missions. It's much easier and more important secure to send uncrewed missions ( we just don`t have to risk the crew) But still, there is a lot of important stuff in particular missions machines cannot do without humans. Which kind of mission do you support crewed or uncrewed?

Both

uncrewed
For Missions to dangerous for Humans
Like in deadly Radiation Belt of Jupiter and Saturn, close to Sun or far far far out in solar system that take decades to arrive
or were manned mission are to expensive

crewed
Robots are build for there task, of they run into problem outside there Design parameter they can fail
Humans can adapt to situation, allot of Apollo mission show that clear that astronaut at site can maximality the results
can do repairs or take decisions outside parameter of robot probe computer.

By the way, to be on Moon or Mars your self is much more fun as to stare on monitor in groundcontrol of a Robot probe

Uncrewed missions with humans in local support & control. For example, small manned station on Mars, capable of real-time control & repair of multiple robotic probes would be the optimal solution for exploration of the planet.

I think crewed exploration is the way to go. As far as science goes, a crewed mission can analyze and return significantly more science than an uncrewed mission.
