By the time a colony is there, it won't be difficult to send supplies. If someone's got a big enough bank account, it'll get done.

Since the OP's link doesn't work I was wondering if this is what you were getting at? Because this is a plan for a flyby mission.

Psychological problems. Those are the worst problems. Watch Sunshine, it deals with just that. Anyway, the Chinese (and recently, the ESA and Russia together) did an experiment of that type.

This isn't flyby. They're going to just hang in the orbit for a little bit, My earlier link didn't work because they took the site down.

...the biggest space companies, like nasa, roscosmos, esa and cnsa. are not yet going to mars. they want to colonize the moon by 2020 1st. and then go for mars around 2033.

It makes sense because they would save on fuel just to name a reason and the Moon makes a great place to start a trip to other planets.

Wait, so let me get this straight. They're willing to spend unimaginable amounts of money to send a man to Mars which probably will accomplish nothing as far as a standard of living ect. goes but they said no to a Death Star and it's countless positive affects. Something very wrong is affoot.

If another meteorite like the one that recently fell on Siberia (50 times bigger and made of metal only) and enters at a sharp angle, the shock wave could turn an entire continent into a big crater, followed by a gigantic tsunami.
With this in mind, Mars could become a second home for a few rich a**holes who could afford the trip while the rest of us will wait for the impact!
OMG, it's Armageddon, run, pray, repent, commit suicide or do just like me and look at it in the eyes while it's falling down. xD

What positive effects? You mean sending tons of perfectly good building matieral into space where they'll get shrapnelled by our orbital waste belt?

Anyway there'd be thousands of more banal and reasonable ways to invest that money, but extraordinary challenges have always propelled humankind, and sending someone to Mars is a rather symbolic than utilitary act. I mean, we got a robot there, right? Why send humans if we can send robots?
