This is the most important thing we could do at this time. If you have it in your power to do something great and important and wonderful then you should.”
For years, scientists have been trying to work out how to sustain life on Mars. They have even been working out how to farm on Mars. Farming is a necessity, seeing as it will probably be a one-way trip.
