I'm not saying it can't be done, just that the technology required will take many decades to develop and there will also need to be a huge amount of preparation - the size and mass of the craft will likely have to be huge compared to the ISS as it will have to store supplies and fuel for that period as well as have sufficient radiation shielding, so it will likely have to be assembled in orbit.People currently stay alive perfectly fine on the space station. I think the record stay on the space station was just over a year. I think 14/18 months. It can be done. Like I said, we just need someone willing to take a chance.
Thanks, gives me something to watch for tonightThere is a Netflix series called "Mars" that explains how they want to achieve this:

Mars. 2016 13+ 1 Season. Fact meets fiction in this docudrama chronicling the journey of a spacecraft crew as it embarks in 2033 on a mission to colonize the .
Don't think that will happen.Matter of time. Dont know if we will set foot on Mars in 2030, but I do believe that Humans will colonise other habitable planets. Please just leave the religious zealots behind... Dont need them on another planet... Let them stay behind on their flat earth.
I think it's far more likely now that the Chinese will get there first. While the rest of the world argues about how many genders there are, they're making vast strides in all the areas that require large technological infrastructure discipline.I'm still disappointed they didn't do it by 1990, as the space buffs said when the Apollo program ended.
Maybe it'll need another Cold War to get them going...
Couldn't agree more. It will definitely happen between 2030 and 2040 sometime. We might as well start now. We literally only have 3 million years +- to spend on Earth before it's consumed by the sun as the sun reaches its dying days. Baby steps.You know over the course of the day I've thought long and hard about this question. I suspect we'll be a few years behind. Most likely in the year 2033.
