This is Mars. Just look at this photo. I know all the arguments about wasting resources on spaceflight, etc., and agree with them to some extent.
However, just look at this picture. This is a relatively hospitiable world, as far as we know. We wouldn't last a second there without the very technology that will probably kill us, one way or another, while possibly taking our own planet on a very harsh ride.
Enough words: look.
