Mars Is Not The Answer

From Inverse: “Unexpected Potential Problems” Predicted for Travelers to Mars and Beyond

One of the reasons given for the colonization of Mars is that that planet could support human life if we ever muck up earth. The reality, though, is getting to Mars, much less living there, would be hard. We’ll probably manage it eventually, but it isn’t a Plan B for humanity. Better to not poison, pollute, and climate change Earth first. Then we can think about going elsewhere as well.
