Wouldn't it just be a better robot? Honestly, using a robot would miles more efficient.

They already sent bots, and they all broke down because of the sand. As long as humans have food and oxygen the will fix themselves and the machines, plus they would serve as alpha testers for mars colony tech..

The point is to send humans further. We have a robot outside the solar system.

I know but in terms of research robots would be better suited and cheaper Michio Kaku: Are Robonauts Better Than Astronauts?

It doesn't send the same message to the public. Having a man on the moon was a huge thing, but having a robot on mars is like... meh.

We almost had a Large Hadron Collider here in our American Texas, three times as big as the one in Geneva, and it would have been gold to the US economy, but our representative had to ask us at the very end of the proposal, "Okay, so, will we find God?"
Everyone knows you can't recover from that question unless you lie.

Something along the lines of "Probably not, but the more we know about Creation, the more we know about our Creator. A better understanding of the world around us will bring us that much closer to God." is probably gonna be the best we could get.

I love how Niel De Grasse Tyson is so ******* passionate about this subject, he's usually so chill but when it comes to space funding he's ecstatic Neil deGrasse Tyson loses it at 'Storytelling of Science'

In all seriousness, sending a man to mars, is pretty ******* futile. We all ready did exactly that, with the moon. Unless we plan to put some kind of permanent base there, of course. But even then, it would make more sense to do that to the moon first.

Now, blowing it up on the other hand. Thats never been done before. That would exactly be an acievement. Of a kind...

We could even do it to get rid of a **** ton of our nukes...

However, I believe we need to hold onto those in case of an alien invasion.

Generally, we need to hold on to the dukes to prevent war. Nucklear deterance is, in my opinion, the biggest factor to prevent any kind of serious war from happening.

I agree. But, the amount we do have is a bit unnecessary.

We could use the experience to develop new weapons though. You know, for alien invasions. Either us being invaded, or being the alien invaders.

They did put out some preliminary application for a permanent settlement, guaranteed one-way trip. They were swamped with people, heavens know why.

People who -think- that they're better off alone, people who -think- that life here sucks, and people who -think- that they'll be happier alone, on a rock, over 55 million kilometers away from Earth.

What about people wanting to to expand our species territory?

I was talking about most people, who most likely do not have the mental strength for such a life.
But yeah, there are people who know what they're applying for, and they have all my respect for accepting such a responsability.

wheras it's a pretty far fetched idea for the moon, atleast at this point in time, we could set up an economically sustainable colony on mars, water could be synthesized from the soil, and oxygen from that, and if you have irrigated, oxygenated soil you can grow your own food, and once they can support themselves there's an entire planet of territory to claim and resources to extract, once a colony goes into growth it would probably keep snowballing until the planet is covered (like earth) and then provinces would have to compete with one another for resources, but most importantly settling mars would set a precedent, instead of going to war and slaughtering each other for resources or land you can simply look to new frontiers to satisfy the ever growing demand for material goods
