Would you fly on one way Mars trip?

What draws a person into space? Fear or self-interest? Curiosity or ambition? Aspiration to test own possibilities or severe necessity? A desire to look at the Earth from the side or walk along the Moon? The first flights were, of course, search engines, the first results were often unexpected, and here on Earth we did not know how to apply them. But a few years have passed, and communication systems have already been built, making almost any point of the planet accessible to a conventional telephone and television. The coordinates of the ship, airplane, car, and anything, can now be determined from space to within a few centimeters. Spacecraft can monitor the movements of troops and schools of fish, fires and hurricanes and modern meteorology without spacecraft is unthinkable. It remains to be surprised how it existed at all in the pre-cosmic era? At the dawn of the space age, people's attention was attracted by the romantic side. Now the time has come for routine work, the purpose of which is the further development of space technologies. Let us take at least such a dramatic problem as the lack of energy. The main resources that are being used are now exhausted. Sooner or later they will end, if not in 40 years. Nuclear stations are a bit dangerous. The sun will still work for several million years. Depleting mineral resources can also provide the moon, it is also nearby. I am deeply convinced that the conquest of outer space is one of the main ways of further development of human civilization, although it is not yet very clear for most people. The cosmos now, perhaps, invisibly, gives us a lot. Sooner or later people will understand this. So … Should a man fly into space? Maybe it's better to send automatic machines there? It's cheaper and safer. Yes, and the possibilities of iron robots in many cases are much more impressive than the possibilities of man from flesh and blood. But still…

I'm all for exploration of space: except, I would like the same budget we freely pay for exploration to also go to taking care of people that need help. I would have loved going to mars when I was younger/ before having children. But now? I have to much I wouldn't give up. I want to be here for my family.
I think sometimes that Noah's Ark it was a spaceship that collected people (maybe even from different twin-planets with different type of climate conditions) and put us on Earth. We, ourselves, washed our own memory with our own invented apparat, in order to start everything from the beginning and not to bring our knowledge back again. And we should do everything so that it would be possible to fly away and to start a new civilization. Because our knowleges are back an whoo Knows how wi will desttroy our planet again
