Woah. What an interesting question with far reaching repercussions!

Built into this simple question are numerous assumptions!

For example, would I want to go to Mars, and the answer to that is no.

Would I want to die on Mars? No. I don’t want to die at all, but when I do it will be on Terra.

Would I travel to Mars? No. I think we should go back to the Moon and colonize that before we even think of going to Mars.

Will we ever colonize Mars? I don’t think so. I think people will walk on Mars and do experiments, but I do not think Mars will ever be populated by humans.
