I think this mission could work, and I'd be really thrilled to see it happen. On to Mars in a little over a decade? Hell yeah! I don't know if I'd like to go personally (not that I could, but if I could). I would miss being able to do so many things, e.g., walking around outside and breathing the air. On the other hand, we might not really have much of a planet left for people to live on in 50 years or so. Might want to get out of here while the gettin's good. Anybody think that they might actually like to be one of mankind's first colonizers of Mars?

So, if the Dutch start living there, are they going to claim the whole planet?  I mean, when Russia decides to land, you think the Dutch are going to let them 'invade' their country?

If the Dutch don't establish a claim, some other country will for sure.  LOL

I can see WWIII happening on Mars.

"That's our parcel of land!"

"No.  It's ours!"

You think humans can/will do better than that?

Good point! I don't know how much time it would take for fighting to spread to Mars, but where there are humans... I've been imagining interplanetary war between Mars and Earth for some time now, but that of course doesn't happen anywhere in the near future. You have a good point. I kind of just have to shake my head in disbelief at the human species that it seems more than less likely that we would fight over Martian land.


Here's a suggestion. Perhaps every person alive now should get a plot of land on Mars. They could then sell it, or keep it as investment property, or rent it out to colonists, etc. Or something to that effect. How does this idea sound? <wincing in preparation of being told how stupid this is by someone>
