Let's say we land the first group there in 2030 and there's a few new advancements that allow us to launch a lot cheaper. By 2040 we could have almost 100 people working the first bases making all kinds of discoveries.The first true single stage to orbit space vehicle will be fully operational and new materials will change everything.
By 2050 after many missions brining new crew and supplies Mars is being mined for resources and has close to if not 1000 people. I also hope my new cybernetic organs help me enjoy seeing all this stuff at 70.
