Mars is the Next “New World,” And We’ll Set Foot on it Soon.
Stephen Petranek   Aug 16, 2015   Big Think  


Establishing a colony on Mars would protect the long-term survival of the human race.

The reason we need to travel to Mars and to establish a civilization on Mars is to protect the long-term survival of the human species. We need to become a space faring society and eventually we need to move far beyond Mars not only from our own solar system but into other solar systems within this galaxy and other solar systems in other galaxies. We are making wonderful progress finding other Earth-like planets and we will continue to find many of those in the future.
