The rush has begun to put humans on the red planet as soon as possible. Not only is there great interest from industrial titans like Elon Musk of SpaceX and Jeff Bezos of Amazon fame, but there are also specialists lecturing on mining Mars, corporate property rights and space law.

To billionaires, international space agencies and scientists, it is our destiny to become a “space-faring species.”
