No!

We should have drones prospecting the Moon controlled from Earth. Then material mined and processed there could be launched to Mars. Don't need to life so much stuff out of the deep gravity well.

No.
Too much risk, and Earth is a nice enough planet. I wouldn't mind visiting Mars if they put up more infrastructure there, but I don't know if they'll get that done within the next sixty years.

Keep the people, the money and the science on Earth and address what we have done here. "Colonizing" Mars to do what? The same loony destructiveness to another planet than we are doing to our own - different environment sure, but the same creatures with the same minds will be doing the same thing to it.
This.

Sure, with a group of sex bots, utility robots, vast internet dumps including movies and tv, youtube, and so on. Also, a small gym, decent food and garden, library, programming and tech tools, space ATVs to play around with and the usual.

No.

But I'm breathlessly awaiting selfies snapped in front of Hard Rock Cafe Olympus Mons!

The year 2067:
"Tom Brady III, you just led the London Beefeaters to a World Bowl victory over the Sydney Sharks! What are you going to do next?"
"I'm going to Mars Disney!"

Disregarding boredom and loneliness and the overall environment on Mars or just anywhere outside of Earth, if you live anywhere outside of Earth with a lower gravitational pull your bone density will decrease and weaken over time. Eventually it might get to the point where if you decide to return to Earth you'd be crushed by the Earth's gravity. You'd also be losing muscle strength and there'll be some big effects on your cardiovascular system as well.

That's one of a myriad of issues, of every kind, we'd have to face living away from Earth. Radiation, distance, environment etc. If even just going to a slightly higher altitude within the Earth's troposphere such as Mount Everest, or to somewhere less hospitable on the Earth's surface such the South Pole gives us so much difficulty, how are we ever going to manage living out of Earth without being eternally hooked on some form of mega advanced life support?

We all love those science fiction novels and films about how humans might eventually colonise the galaxy, but we're just designed to live in such a narrow set of conditions within Earth, that we take for granted, we'll never manage without some form of highly advanced alien technology, and probably some drastic biological modifications.

Here's hoping my answer to this thread is obvious by now

If we live on the surface then we need life-support suits but if we live under the surface away from the harsh environment where humans cannot survive then there is no problem. Along with this we need unlimited power to develop the bases.

However, I believe we have all this stuff already, otherwise how do you explain the silent triangular and cigar-shaped craft then. I asked this earlier but no-one seems to take me seriously.

So obviously no-one knows anyone who has seen a strange craft in the sky? If so, you must be living on your own and staring at the ground all the time.
