"...perhaps we will colonize other planets, or something..."

Perhaps 'merely' colonize the Moon: will leave such as an open question. The US has the tech; Russians have the boosters; China has the bravery. (For brevity's sake am keeping this, as a comment, simple.)
At this time the political willpower does not exist to colonize other planets.
