Traveling to Mars is important for a lot of reasons.
1. Can humans survive on a hostile planet for a long time.
2. Can humans create a spacecraft on a hostile planet from local resources.
3. When we activate the Alcubierre warp drive, hopefully Mars will be on the other side of the sun so the Earth survives if the thing blows up....
4. The steps to get to the stars are going to require a lot of practical testing and performing some really dangerous experiments, that could destroy a planet. Better Mars than earth.

I'm sure that planets like earth are very rare. But I feel that we are not alone in this universe.
If the universe is teaming with life as some believe, where is the evidence? The universe would be saturated with artificial electromagnetic signals yet all evidence shows it to be entirely strerile of intelligent life other than ourselves.
