Yes, but our vessels and propulsion systems are not advanced enough. I will tell my idea on ships to mars later, right now im gonna talk about the carbon-dioxide collection.


Due to global warming(IT'S A REAL THING OKAY!!) the permafrost in our poles are beginning to decay, which is releasing carbon-dioxide, among other things, in massive amounts. We could create carbon-dioxide collectors that are near permafrost melt zones that capture and bottle the carbon-dioxide for use of adding atmosphere to planets, or can be used in closed system oxygen production facilities. This can then be transfered to waiting ships, will post on that later, to be sent to terraforming sites.

Many of my ideas involve starting over. Not like sticking ten people in a bunker in cyrostasis, then razing the world flat. No, that would never work. A better idea, would be to colonize a new planet. Leave just enough connection that we can trade information, and goods between the two plants, but largely leaving each other alone. Allowing them to grow by themselves, under one flag, so there would be no reason for war. But the main problem, we are human. And as long as we remain human, there will always be strife and war. There will not be any Utopia, as Utopia is ironic. Utopia is described as a wonderful place where everyone is equal and there is no indifference or strife. But, the actual definition of Utopia: "A place that doesn't exist"

Don't get me wrong. Im not saying we can't improve ourselves. But we will never be perfect.

So the tangible thing that you can do then is support space development. Donate to NASA and space development, or better yet study to become an astrophysicist or engineer so you, yourself, can help humanity progress to the future!

No, I wouldn't donate to NASA. NASA is a failing goverment division. SpaceX has made more advancements in five years, the NASA has in fifty.

Well, to be fair, they have very different goals.

NASAs main goal is research and development for all matters of space, which they have done exceedingly well at. They've created permanent space stations, have invented countless new materials, have studied extensively about biology within space, have launched countless probes within our solar system and beyond. They have measured so much data and learned so much, they've tracked almost every large space rock within the solar system, have landed probes on other planets, have taken pictures of pluto and the close up of the sun. Have launched space telescopes that can see other galaxies. They have also contributed to data collection on earth, modelling the climate and being pinnacle in the evidence for climate change and global warming as well as being extremely important for telecommunication infrastructure that would bring rise to the internet and GPS. All these achievements, the huge amount of data that has been acquired by NASA over their short tenure of only 60 years or so has truly been an astronomical achievement in progressing human understanding, without this data Space X would not exist.

SpaceX on the other hand is entirely focused on rocket propulsion and increasing access to space. They have considerably narrower goals and thus it's only natural that within their much narrower scope they would have achieved much more. So yeah SpaceX have invented more sophisticated rockets that definitely look cool, but to say that these achievements are even equivocal to the achievements made by NASA ignores almost everything that NASA does. Elon Musk has a great marketing team, so you need to be careful. SpaceX is doing great though, and if you wanna donate to SpaceX by all means do so, and having more people work on the problem is always good, but don't say SpaceX is doing better than NASA, saying that is ignoring so much. (On a side note they've also been running for 17 years, so more than the 5 years you've thought about)

It takes a long time to build a rocket! People are much more interested in the final result than they are in the research and development stage so you only really heard about them then. Also its probably got something to do with Elon musk becoming more famous at that time, but yep, SpaceX was started in 2002.
