This is ONE bizarre thread, seriously....
The goal will not be sending up people up for a short time or for them to die, instead one goal will be to to establish a self-sustaining outpost
where people eg. can grow plants, their own foods, creating oxygen even to be able to live in an otherwise dangerous environment.
What sort of mission is that where you send people up there basically expecting them to die "anyway", so we don't need to care about safety measures
etc. to "save money" or similar.
Seriously, this is BEYOND ##### up. If we are not able to send people up there for them to survive, then there is also no reason to send them up in
the first place.
However, your (rather abstruse) idea would be good for some interesting but controversial movie/book (i'll give you that)....one turn in the story
could be that the people on Mars discover a cure...but then face the reality that no one thought about they would want to come back. Any SciFi authors
etc. would have a blast with that idea, it's great!
