This project investigated humanity's abilities and desires to colonize space. In particular, the reasons for wanting to colonize space were discussed. After exploring various options for the establishment of a colony in space, it was determined that Mars was the best location. By examining the necessary technological and human requirements for the mission, we found that such a plan will be feasible within 50 years. The research needed to attain such a goal has been investigated in detail.
