    IMO money spent on our citizens is much better spent than on space buggies.

      Viking landed on Mars in 1976 and took this picture:

      44 years later we landed on mars and took this picture:

          I don’t get the fascination with Mars, I see cold red rock.

            Geographic arbitrage. Real estate prices on the moon are astronomical.

              Pigs do not make good astronauts.

                that's right, i'm staying right here on Earth. mars has a avg temp of -80 and doesn't have a breathable atmosphere. we need to focus on taking care of our planet, the billionaires spending money on interplanetary travel are in my opinion wasting money which should be spent here.

                  Mars was once very Earthlike, with oceans and rivers. That makes it one of the few places (along with Europa and Enceladus) where we might have a chance of finding non-Earth life.

                    At the rate we’re going, we might want to begin working on alternatives to living on planet Earth

                      As said above Mars was once very hospitable with oceans and rivers but has suddenly become a dry place. We can see if any traces of life exist or have existed before it went into that dead state. And if any chances of recovery is remotely possible.

                      Even our other neighbor Venus was once a very temperate place until 800 million years ago when there were major volcanic eruptions spewing tons of sulfuric acid and CO2 that turned it into the hottest planet. 800 million years was not that long ago when you realize that huge dinosaurs were here on earth 250 million years ago.

                      Knowing what exactly happened that triggered these planets to dead zone planets from hospitable planets can help us prevent that from happening here on Earth. For that, spending $3B is small change.
