Meh. We should be researching the development of space elevators. Once we no longer need to launch ridiculous amounts of fuel into space, then Mars etc. will be in easier reach.

I do think this sort of research and other things like Hyperloop etc could indeed help us. If we could travel faster or become interested enough in research and STEM fields, future generations will be successful. Its the kind of thing Kennedy did with the space program, every kid wanted to be an astronaut and it boosted college enrollments dramatically.

Elon Musk took that and privatized it. It became SpaceX and now he is trying to get to Mars.
That is cool. We need to 'revive' interest in space exploration as our demand for minerals will ultimately outstrip supply.
