Humans want to establish boundaries in space that's all. Is it God's plan?

I have a feeling they have other motivations in suggesting this.

The Pentagon briefing following their secret $22 million UFO study, (that was made public in Dec 2017 in a NY Times article), they concluded and warned that the US military would not be able to defend against some of these technologies if they were ever used against us.

It may not be the whole reason, but I doubt the concern over human viruses and microbes in relation to Mars is the real concern, they know how to remain totally sterile from past space missions anyway.

I dont think God comes into it unless he is a little green man with large black almond eyes.

Microbes have been hitching a lift on meteors and comets from the deep places in space for millions of years and the ones under the ice in Antarctica are just as likely to be human-killing viruses as the ones on Mars. The Russians have already broken the sterility of the water in lake Vostok so we have contaminated that one pretty successfully. There is NO chance we will NOT contaminate Mars too. On the Moon there are probably discarded crisp packets(joke) too since the Lunar Module was not designed to return its rubbish to earth.

I bet there are pockets of rubbish buried in Antarctica because I just do not believe that a station the size of McMurdo can remove all its waste the same way it came in.

He also thinks it's extraordinarily unlikely that a Martian organism brought to Earth would wreak havoc. “The chances of some organism that’s evolved to love Mars to suddenly say, 'Gosh, I’m going to kill off kangaroos' — it ain't gonna happen,” he said. “The pathogenesis is a highly evolved trait. There’s been a billion years of evolution that makes a pathogen a pathogen.”
We only have to have one escape and we are doooooomed... I think man landing on other planets are the ones we need to worry about.
