This project examined the perennial desire of humanity to travel through and colonize space. We explored the obstacles that must be overcome and research that has to be performed in order to attain this goal. In particular a blueprint for establishing a colony on Mars has been developed. Using our findings, it is conceivable for humanity to establish its first colony on Mars within 50 years. We have made recommendations regarding policies and research into space exploration.
