Do you think people will live on Mars one day?

Yes, I also believe that certain portion of the Earth's Population will definitely live on Mars one day, because certain parts of our World's Natural Resources are depleting and overuse, therefore people will always look for alternative or replacements elsewhere, as part of our human nature. May be NASA Mars missions will find some kind of precious metals, minerals or elements on Mars to give great incentive for people to colonize the Mars and will be helped by
great people like Elon Musk :)

Why not? But it has to be clear that human life on Mars will be different. I love you, Earth !!

Today Mars is the most and in more depth studied planet of the Solar System. For the idea, people will live on Mars, I can response that nowadays the people can use the Red Planet for scientific research and development only. As far ahead as anyone can see there is no such possibility.

I think is possible for human to life in Mars. But is better if they didn’t because humain will destroy evrething he touch.

It is better to maintain our planet from all that destroy it and destroy the beauty of its nature than we spend numerous amounts of money to discover what is in mars

Yes I do, investigations are being developed, and results has shown that It could be possible, because there are necessary factors and resources for human being.
These factors are important to be processed, and so finally obtain the enviroment suitable that allow this places be habitated by human life.
Most of these places won't be the same that we have khown here in earth, but human life can stay there,like we have seen nowadays.

i think this a very far possibility for the most of people live in earth, you nedd so much money to travel into the space

I think that could be a real possibility, but in a very further future!!

I think it`s very difficult

By analyzing the current situation of the planet, we can say that it’s difficult to live on such planet because the water which is considered the main factor of human living is so cold there. What makes Earth appropriate for life is its placement not so far from the sun and also the presence of oxigen. The absence of these two elements means life is impossible in Mars.
However, human technology as I think can find some solutions to have life on such planet like having water not so frozen and providing oxygen on it.
