Most Seniors have several prescriptions to fill regularly and eventually you'll be unable to take care of yourself, where are the Pharmacies and retirement homes? I think we are AT LEAST Decades away from being ready to establish a Colony on Mars.

gee, don't you people ever read scifi or watch scifi?
