    Not so fast, Elon Musk! Get back in line with the rest of the losers.

    Mars ain't gonna happen - and you won't need your tourist shots now.

    ..... sumpthin' about not stepping on the Martians who now are purported to live under the top layer of Mars dirt and snow. Walking on the locals could spoil an intergalactical kegger here!

    Mars is real bright and high south right now- 00:30 7 Aug. 2018.
    Getting further from the sun. Cold. Not wanting to go somewhere colder than the poles of Earth.

    Mars is a good place to practice terraforming and building space elevators but it is a poor piece of real estate. Space habitats like the O'Neil colonies and asteroid mining have more potential IMO.
