  • Oh my gosh YES!

    Mars would be an incredible leap for humanities space exploration. We shouldn't set up any large colonies yet or we might just leave earth to fend for itself after we've mucked it up, but definitely some small bases to experiment with. Plus, we won't damage any ecosystems up there with our human desire to expand and improve.

  • Going to Mars is Necessary for Human Survival.

    Face it, we're all screwed as a species on Earth if we continue to change our climate like we're doing now. The facts are there, and Earth is getting much hotter, much quicker. The only way we can save humans is to move, and the only place we can move to is Mars. Elon Musk made a great claim by saying that we shouldn't put all our eggs into one basket. Instead, we need to have a "backup" in case something bad happens, kind of like drives on a file. If that drive crashes, that file is gone forever. If you save the file somewhere else, then it isn't gone.

    And warming isn't the only thing that could end humanity, there's also millions of asteroids that could hit us at any time, as well as the impending doom of Nuclear Weapons.

    These could all end us, so if we move to Mars, then there's a chance we won't end up dying.

  • We Could Do It

    Why should we go to Mars? Because it could save human population and going to the Red Planet will be a good thing because there is multiple resources on Mars that we could use that rovers have found there. We could use the Martian soil to build buildings. On www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov it says, " The soil could be used as radiation shielding and could provide many useful industrial and construction materials." WE COULD REBUILD HUMAN LIFE IF NEEDED!!!

  • The Survival of Humanity

    For humanity to continue to survive we must leave our home. As climate change increases and tensions also increase between nations. The only way to ensure our survival is to leave. It is important that we always have a backup plan. It may be a sad day for most of us. Not me though.

  • Yes we should

    I think we should go to mars because, if there is a mission to mars we would be able to learn more about mars. Such as if humans can live there. Also we could take better care for mars and not pollute it like Earth. There also can be more resources for us and probably even new resources. Going to mars is worth the risk. My reasons are we could find life, we can I find something new,and because the resources mars has. Another reason we should go to Mars, is to inspire the next generation of space explorationers.
    My first reason was that we could find life on mars.
    According to Neil deGrasse Tyson (Director, Hayden Planetarium) There is evidence to suggest that Mars was wet before Earth was wet. If that's the case, maybe Mars had life before Earth had life. We know that meteors jump between the planetsa fact established only in the past ten years, or so. A big meteor hits Mars, and thrusts rocks into space that then land on Earth; we know that this happens. We also know that certain classes of bacteria have very high thresholds for radiation and for temperature: they're extremophiles, they love extremes. Combine the fact that extremophiles exist, that rocks move from planet to planet, and that Mars was wet before Earth was wet, and you have to admit the possibility that life traveled from Mars to Earth as stowaways in the cracks of rocks. Which would make all humans — all life on Earth — the descendants of Martians.
    Next we could find something new. Still coming from Tyson we don't learn anything new about biology. We would all share common DNA. Biologists would continue to revel in the biodiversity of life as we know it, but at the end of the day there'd still be only a sample of one: DNA-based life. Whereas if the identify of life on Mars were encoded by other means, there'd be no end of inquiry, no end of revolutionary research — we will have discovered the first truly new form of life.
    Another reader might say that going to mars is a bad ideal. The reason he or she might think 💭 this is because the safety of our astronauts.

  • We really should go.

    Mars is the first step in exploring the solar system. From Mars we can easily reach the asteroid belt for resources and we can even launch probes from Mars into the outer solar system using less fuel. Mars also has many more reasons for exploration than Mars. We should go to Mars.

  • We have pollution on earth

    If we go to mars, we would have a chance to start over, like a new earth. Mars is a chance for the whole world to have a clean plate, and not destroy a planet. Our earth is turning into a big large dump, and if it keeps getting destroyed, eventually there will be no more people on Earth because the air will be so polluted.

  • It would be a huge leap for human kind

    "We choose to go to the moon, not because it's easy but because it's hard". This is John F. Kennedy's famous Rice Moon Speech. If we go to mars it would be a huge leap for man kind. That is something that nobody can argue against. So lets go to Mars.

  • Repair the environment first!

    The Earth's environment has been more than enough, and most of those rich corporations don't give a hoot about it, and would much rather mega profit on that! And to even send people to Mars and to attempt forming life over there before fixing the environment is an absolute no no!

  • That is impossible

    It is impossible to go to Mars in decades. If we want to go to mars, I'm sure we need to wait a millions of years, and if we go to Mars, we need a lot of money to make Mars to be livable. I don't want that if we need such amount of money.

  • We could damage Mars

    If we aim to search for life on Mars, why would we send humanity to contaminate the planet? Then if we try to search for life, all we find is our bacteria.
    Also, the amount of radiation you would receive traveling to
    Mars could harm child bearing people and hence mutations of the human race could evolve.
    Lastly, life on Mars won't be as fun as it sounds. We will have to live in confinement due to the lack of Oxygen and this can have immense effects on our psychological state.

  • Going to Mars has nothing to do with human flourishing

    Ensuring good stewardship of planet Earth to preserve it for future generations is a far more important goal for humankind than sending a human mission to Mars. The huge resources needed for a Mars mission would be much better invested in repairing, protecting and maintaining our planet.

    Once we go past the superficial excitement that many feel for a new space mission we discover that a Mars mission is just the first step of another colonialist venture, the violent and irresponsible plundering of nature's resources, only transferred to another planet.

    Instead of following inhuman, technology-driven ambitions that only take us further away from ourselves we should put all our efforts in reconnecting with our unique, beautiful world and learn to live in harmony with it. This is the only possible direction for meaningful human flourishing.

  • To visit, ok.

    But I'm presuming you mean with a view to colonising. Assuming the aim is to ensure survival of the species after destroying our own planet, my answer is no. If we screw up Earth for ourselves and all other species, what gives us the right to travel to other worlds and destroy them too? Leave well alone, and take responsibility for our own actions.

  • Moon first, Mars second

    I my self am not against going to Mars, however I feel we should be placing stations, bases and colonies on the moon first for several reasons.
    1. The moon Is closer and has plenty of space to spare for colonization.
    2. There is less gravity on the moon then there is on earth. Therefore should we fire a space ship or rocket from there to Mars there would be less friction and drag to slow them down.
    3. Should we colonies the moon first we humans would attain the necessary skills and experience to do the same on Mars.

  • We should not go to mars

    We should not go to mars because what about the bathroom, And it would cost like 100 to 200 billion dollars for about 1 trip because mars is way farther than the moon and the moon takes a lot of cash still. We never know if theirs food on mars and we will run out of air because mars has no air and we need to bring air so we would run out. :/

  • There is nothing there

    Why go to mars when you could stay on planet earth and go shopping or go travel around different places like america or australia or africa so much to do on earth but what is there to do on mars nothing. That is why we should not go to mars.

  • It the best

    It is one of the greatest planets up to earth and we should
    go to mars because it is the closest and the most suitable planet to move to other than earth and that is why i think we should go pls agree with me i am 11 years old

  • We shouldn't go to mars

    We should go to mars because of medical issues. What happens if your doctor dies before you. Who will take care of you then. Besides you might not even have the right people for the job. They can say they are experienced but you don't know if that's true. They could just be a joke. Also you have to create the oxygen and food. We shouldn't go to mars.
