I would do it. I would do it faster than you could blink.
Why? Well how bad can it be? Without getting into too many details, life on this planet sucks! However, give me an opportunity to create a civilization? A Government? A way of life? A chance to make a better world than the one I know?
Absofreakinlutely! Sign me up! I couldn't think of a better gift to give to humanity.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not lamenting it being a suicide mission. I'm just asking questions in an effort to clarify if in fact that's what it is. What is the intention of the mission? To at least attempt to establish a temporary or lasting colony on Mars? Or simply to prove that travel to Mars is possible and then to die there once oxygen, water, food, and/or insulation are depleted?
If people wish to end their lives on Mars - or anywhere for that matter - that's their business as far as I'm concerned. I just don't want them to be misled into it is all. Some people have expressed the desire to start a new government and colony on Mars, and I don't feel that it's clear that's what the mission would be. Or if it is, how they intend to go about it.
