I hope they aren't hedging their bets on oil cash.

In a hundred years, we should be way past oil.

WHO do you want to colonize space, and Mars ?

The US,China,Russia,Japan,Middle East ?


Yes, all of the above. Please, make the colony large enough to fit 'em all and I'll stand here on Terra Firms smiling and waving like Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies. Less rats, more cheese.

My thoughts too. I hope Frank Herbert's Dune does not turn out to be prophetic.

The other difficulty is we have not, publicly at least, assertained that Mars is NOT inhabited.

Human history speaks a lot of what humanity is likely to do in the future.

Yep Arrakis . . . .

Good points, though human nature will overcome the obstacles.

From observation the filthy rich won't sit back and watch their lifestyle disappear. They will invest in a money making scheme.

Now a city on Mars doesn't need to be under earth laws. They can make their own laws, or have none at all.

An ultimate city of depravity could arise, especially if the idea of slavery is included.

The idea of a city where a depraved mind can do anything they like to slaves without question would probably appeal to to a lot of rich people.

So who should go to Mars?

Since wealth knows no borders, and the dark side of human nature being what it is, I would say: "nobody".

If the UAE colonises Mars it means there won't be Martian bikini rocket washes.

Hardly seems worth the effort really after saying that.

Turning Mars into a living planet is the first thing that needs to happen. It probably will take another 100 years of 2117 to make an atmosphere on Mars.

So will rape be legal on Mars like it is in Dubai? They will even arrest the woman if she reports it:

UK woman arrested in Dubai after reporting rape.

Without basic human rights, you should not be allowed to participate in international projects.

Got me thinking.... Muslims (and Jews alike) on Mars - in what direction would they pray?

Meh...

100 years from now there will be no "countries" or "nations" or "wealth" and land ownership will mean nothing.

Let the babies have their bottle!!

TEOT says nuclear fusion puts an end to most of this dumb B.S. (belief system) and that seems to be targeted to happen in 2020 or so.

Well, they won't hit the ground so hard on Mars.

But why wait till 2017? Send them now, freeze dried. Wait for rain on the surface.
