Question
Dear Geoff

If Mars planet exploration predicts life existence for Human beings species survival, Will future Generations may migrate to Mars planet?.

This could be a Science fiction story?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
I doubt it. The Great Filter Theory points out that since no other alien species has ever crossed into interstellar space and reached us, that therefore all organic species become extinct before they ever  are able to discover space-travel. Even interplanetary travel is highly unlikely and certainly no mass colonisation could ever take place. Read the 1st book and the ensuing two books of the Trilogy:-

for an SF view of Mars exploration, though.

HTH,
Geoff.
