Elon Musk wants to build a colony on Mars. Is this a laudable effort? – Today’s CLIDEMY Poll

Elon Musk wants to accelerate space travel and also get humans to start living on Mars.

He doesn’t want us humans to be a single planet species. Alternative planet habitation also provides a theoretical Plan(et) B for earthlings should the our good ole place become unlivable (say, due to global warming), or is in danger of getting massively hurt by some monstrous asteriod hurtling by.

Musk is not alone. Some sort of commitments to explore permanent Mars settlement have been made by NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration, European Space Agency – ESA, Roscosmos, ISRO, China National Space Administration, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.

That’s a lot of interest.

Deep dive into our work

On the other hand, we have this wonderful habitat called earth right under and around us, formed over a massive 4+ billion years of experiments, trials, tribulations and successes. It is here. It works. We live and thrive on it.

Could such Mars colonization efforts give us a false sense of security leading to sub-optimal environmental efforts on earth? Or do these efforts represent a vital evolution of human ingenuity?
