A company is claiming that it will be able to settle people on Mars by 2023. It will send 4 people on a one way ticket to Mars to colonize it. Hundreds of thousands of people have already applied to become part of the first civilization on Mars. I personally would decline going because I'm not willing to sacrfice never seeing my family and friends again to make history. You can learn more about this here link

Apparently there are 4 separate Moon colonization organisations (each planning to take 3 to 6 people a year if I'm not mistaken?)
I don't think most people have thought it through that well, they are probably applying on impulse but I can't imagine why it would be that exciting. The Mars is basically barren rock, they'll not even be capable of venturing out without space suits due to the high levels of radiation and sand storms. The excitement from living on the moon will wear off soon enough, I can imagine theyre will be a very high chance of insanity amongst some of the colonizers that regrett their decision when it's too late.
EVEN if we were willing to return them after a few years of adapting to life on Mars, there are medical implications of allowing their return to earth.. It's well known that astronauts suffer from bone marrow and muscle wastage due to the brief time in space living under low gravity their body doesn't need to be that strong. So returning to Earth could potentially be life threatnining if that became an option
I'm happy with Earth2
