Should we colonize Mars or other planets?

9 posts in this topic

It is different than when we colonized America. There were already people here and we displaced them. There is no one to displace on Mars. I think it is a great idea.

First you have to look at the cost of providing resources to sustain human life....not a cheap undertaking, especially when there are so many needs on the planet we already inhabit...

How would they go about choosing who stays and who goes?

If the military gets involved applicants would most likely have to test into the program like they do for Seals, submarines, Rangers, etc...the powers that be are already taking civilian applications...

I wish I could find the link that I saw not long ago about a marine in California who was at his post . He watched a capsule shaped spaceship or what looked like one.He kept his eyes on it , filmed it, watched ir navigate up down left and right at 100 MPH and hover over the waters and dropped something in . If it is true that our Gods are light years away and have used earth to create human life I would want to be there. If we are the only planet with life then the universe is a lonely world. I believe there is life on other planets but I don't believe that Mars can sustain life . Scott Kelly has much to tell but I believe there are other planets with life and that if we had the proper rockets to get there it would be great !
