Are you absolutely certain that we never came from there in the first place?
Maybe a million years ago martian surface was like earth and people were "wondering" if they would ever step foot on earth?
Twinkle Twinkle little star ..... how I WONDER what you are?
Yes. We simply need to clean our own house before God will let us trash anyone else’s. The key people are ready to move but time is running out my friend.
Not likely because funding is hard to come by and many people stand in the way of progress.
That's just like asking if 'man' himself will ever travel outside the galaxy.
Once, mankind achieves the ability....will it actually become a reality.
Most likely not.
How ever, if over-population ever becomes a real threat...just maybe.
Well as the saying goes...men are from mars and women are from venus lol sorry Lima I couldn't resist.
but I don't think it'll happen anytime soon...money is a big issue...
When will a Human Step on Mars?
3535, but by that time we won't want to.
Excellent image Madame X
We will step on Mars 20 to 30 years after we step back onto the moon. Reason being ... we will need to use the moon as a jump off point to get to Mars, which will require building a base on the moon.
And why would that be? To go to Mars requires a lot more fuel, and more fuel requires even more fuel to lift such a rocket into space. As such, the low gravity of the moon makes for a much more economical launch.
So ... we would piece out what needed to be built on Earth and send it to the moon. The base on the moon would assemble the rocket on the moon, hopefully using resources from the moon as part of the building process, and then the launch from the moon would require much less resources.
Upon return, the rocket could return to the moon or to Earth. If it returned to the moon it would require less shielding for reentry.
Of course, this is all speculation on my part.
There ya go. This is more what I was looking for when I asked the question. Money aside here's what I know.
Perdue and Penn State are currently experimenting with rocket engines that run on nano-particle aluminum and water ice. It works too.
The moon has lots of aluminum and water. That's what LCROSS confirmed and was announced yesterday. The problem now is to figure out how to extract it before sending anything up there to do the job.
I also know, from materials scientists, that the dust on the moon (called regolith) is an ideal cement; all it needs is water. Someone associated with USC has already designed a robot for that purpose. It can distribute cement, under robotic control, and build a structure by laying down succeeding layers of cement. Of course the cement hardens into concrete and viola you have a structure.
Space science is also certain there's water on Mars.Mars also has an abundance of aluminum.
There are more than 50% of unused, barren, virgin lands on earth.... In Russia's Siberia, Canada, W.Australia, Tibet, Gobi, most parts of South America and Central Africa. We must try to change those lands into habitable areas instead of spending billions and billions on space. We cant conclude that we have conquered moon and mars where only a group of ten or more can go and return. Half of humanity is not having enough living standards. Why not we think about them?
Though I acknowledge that living standards differ a lot, but better man stepped on any other planet than convert those areas to (as you said) into habitable areas. Because converting would be a disaster.
Why? Because we would not have enough oxygen to breathe. And that, to my mind, is a bit more important than living standards.
With advance technology , it may be possible in near future ....
As energy sources increases .... there will be a step towards becoming a martian .....
In the end, the means out weigh the ends. The technology developed to get there has the greatest impact on society. War and scientific exploration are often seen as completely wastefull. However some great advances are made from both endeavors.

How will the human body adapt to life on Mars?The muscles in the human body have adapted to suit the gravitational force of Earth. With the gravity on Mars being 1/3rd that of Earth, how do you think the body will evolve?

I think it's a step to far, It even scares me and i am not going! The through of going to a different planet HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of miles away (WITH NO RETURN) its a death sentence! We aren't made to go to different planets! These people will NEVER be able to return, so they say bye to there...

Will another man (or woman) step foot on the moon during our lifetimes?The last man to step foot on the moon was Eugene Cernan. His boot touched the moon on December 11, 1972. Incredibly, that was almost 40 years ago!

My son thinks so, and now I'm beginning to think it could be true - has this theory already been considered? I mean, it's impossible to know what the sun is really made of...all we know for sure, is that its still burning. It could have a solid mass at its core....I'm thinking that when...
