Elon Musk argues that we must put a million people on Mars if we are to ensure that humanity has a future

I have speculated on this in my scifi novel "Red Gold". The argument for going was that if we do not find some such challenge, our civilisation will stagnate, like the ancient Egyptians and a number of other civilisations did when they ran out of simple advances and began to look inside. However, I agree with Musk that the required mass of supporting material is huge. I disagree that this makes any sense at all with chemical rockets, other than for manoeuvring. I proposed fusion power, and the motors of the first two ships were landed on the surface to provide both energy for the settlers and the ability to make metals and other materials. Some other advanced propulsion system might work, but how do you make materials when you get there? As I have one character frivolously point out, the fossil fuels and the forests have long gone. There is no carbon to reduce metal oxides, and how would you go about making transport fuel? If you are going to use electricity, how do you make your wires? Yes, I have solutions, but they all go back to the fusion power, because you need plenty of energy. Another problem I identify is fertiliser? Where do you get that from? In particular, where do you get your nitrogen fertiliser? (That is one of the themes of the book, and my solution started speculatively, but I think it could be right, and it led me to my theory of planetary formation.) To summarise, there are huge problems, and I don't think we have the technology to consider it yet, but it could be an incentive to really develop technology that, as an aside, would greatly assist our present problems.
