Wanting to go into space and being able to do it are two different things. Just because it happens in Star Trek, doesn't make it real or possible.

NASA has no clue how to solve two major problems that will stop man from going into deep space for long periods of time, and NASA admits this:

1. Space radiation

2. Lack of gravity

Those are problems that will hurt man/woman, maybe kill him/her. No human has stayed in deep space for more than 12 days, which were on the Apollo moon missions. The ISS - International Space Station is in LEO - Low Earth Orbit which varies from 220 miles to 348 miles above earth. The earth's atmosphere shields the ISS from most of the sun's radiation and Space weather.

Staying in almost zero gravity for more than a few days begins to break down muscle and bone mass and other medical issues. The longest anyone has stayed at a space station, the MIR is about 438 days. There were many medical issues.

Right now, NASA has no space ship that can handled a manned mission to Mars. The largest rover we have sent to Mars weights about 12,000 lbs. The Apollo spaceships weighed about 100,000 pounds and orbited the moon before the Lunar module went down to the moon. We have never had an unmanned spaceship obit Mars and then send a lander down to the surface of Mars. Right now a manned mission to Mars is not possible. You need a crew of at least 3 for a manned mission to Mars, just like we had for the moon.

NASA has no idea how to build a spaceship big enough with enough room for water, food, and fuel for a trip to Mars. You can write them and they will let you know that. I have.

You should read these two documents from NASA if you can get them.

Of course we should and are. You can't honestly believe that within the parameters of this species existence, that we will never colonize on another planet. Regardless of whether it will be necessary or not is the debate you should be having; whether or not we should achieve complete sustainability on Earth before advancing to other planets.
