Those who overcome the challenges associated with the passage to any new world, lead the way with their ingenuity. Hopefully, we can trust that their technological prowess is rivaled by their consciousness.
Fret not! The "Old World" will not be left in the star dust, since it stands only to gain from new innovations and prosperity inevitably achieved on Mars.

Ceres is categorized as a dwarf planet, but not regarded as one of the nine planets (Pluto included) within our solar system. Ceres is the largest celestial body within the asteroid belt. It is about 600 miles in diameter. Its orbit is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
If and when the riddle of gravity is ever solved, technological advancements that might facilitate humans' ability to invert gravity into a repelling force may be developed. Perhaps such force inversion technology could be incorporated into many integrally networked satellites, orbiting an asteroid, moon, or planet, in order to create a variably focusing repelling (anti-gravity) force field to shift or move any celestial body around within our solar system for the purpose of optimal relocation or even for inducing controlled collisions between such bodies in order to create larger planets. Such technology would perhaps allow Ceres to play a vital role in restoring the molten iron core and global magnetic field of Mars. Before carefully colliding Ceres into Mars, Ceres and Mars would need to be thoroughly explored and examined for the existence of life, If either hosts life, then such a radical idea would have to be ruled out. If Ceres and Mars are void of life of any kind, then the prospects of colliding Ceres into Mars could be quite promising, due to Ceres being comprised of an iron core and a mantle with layers of rock, ice, and perhaps an internal liquid ocean. Not only would this likely restore the molten iron core, thus the global magnetic field of Mars, but such a planetary unification would also likely restore the ocean and the denser atmosphere that Mars evidently once had. Granted, such a measure would initially transition Mars into a period of tectonic chaos, such as intense volcanism, from which the conditions ultimately conducive to Terra forming Mars into an Earth-like planet would emerge. With the stewardship of responsibly qualified humans nurturing the Terra formation of Mars, I believe the intended transformation of Mars would progress much more quickly than most would predict. Observations of natural ecosystems rebounding after Earth's catastrophic disasters have revealed how surprisingly resilient nature can be.
Why is restoring the global magnetic field of Mars so important? A planet's rotation, combined with its molten outer core is what produces its global magnetic field. Due to the the apparent extinction of all past volcanism on Mars, its once molten core evidently cooled and solidified hundreds of millions, if not billions, of years ago, leaving only a spotty remnant of a magnetic field that inadequately buffers the Martian atmosphere (including water vapor) from the Solar winds that evidently and gradually stripped away most of what once was a much denser, greenhouse-effect-inducing, and liquid-water-sustaining, atmosphere. Naturally preserved, water-eroded, but currently dry, channels, ravines, and tributary systems photographed from launched orbiting space probes are what initially revealed such an ancient past on Mars.
To better understand Mars is to better understand the Earth and vice versa. Unfortunately, we don't hear the main stream news media and politicians ask the following obvious questions in response to the typically espoused contexts regarding carbon dioxide emissions:
Climate Change? Which climate is changing into what new climate? Why do those who tout the narrative of “Climate Change” no longer refer to it as “Global Warming," except when there’s a heat wave? Is this to “cover their (gas)” in the event the next ice age proves to be just around the corner? There are relatively recent signs that a reversal of Earth's magnetic polarity may be in process, thus possibly indicating a forthcoming ice age. If Co2 (carbon dioxide) emissions supposedly induce global warming, won’t such human-contributed emissions be a welcomed countermeasure if and when an ice age reoccurs? If global warming is occurring, why isn’t its cause instead attributed to the significantly increased output of the Sun, detected during and since the 20th century? Why is the fact that Co2 only constitutes a residual trace amount of .04% of the Earth’s atmosphere rarely reported? Is this due to those who want to demonize Co2, don't want the public to distinguish between high Co2 emission rates versus the resulting ultra-low trace amount of the Co2 accumulation level within Earth’s atmosphere? Why would anyone label Co2 as a pollutant, considering the fact all plants collectively absorb and utilize Co2 as fast as it is emitted into the atmosphere, and all animals vitally rely on plants for food and oxygen? The symbiotic relationship between plant-life and animals is partially constituted by the vitally utilized exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen between these two kingdoms. Why are Co2 emissions often incorrectly referred to as just carbon emissions? Does this mean the “Climate Change” alarmists are okay with people confusing carbon dioxide (Co2) with toxic carbon monoxide as they so often do? FYI, carbon monoxide is an unstable molecule; therefore, it doesn't accumulate in any sustained manner within Earth’s atmosphere. Why aren't nitrogen, Co2, and water vapor acknowledged as the three “greenest” gasses, naturally occurring within Earth’s atmosphere? Since plants rely on all three of these gasses, can you name a greener gas? Well, you can't. Water vapor is essential to life on land, since it condenses into clouds and precipitation. Why aren't Co2’s “greenhouse” properties put into proper perspective by informing the masses of the fact that water vapor has far greater “greenhouse” properties than either Co2 or methane? Did you know that most people don’t know methane and natural gas are the same thing? If the Summer thaw-outs along the fringes of Greenland and the South polar ice cap are supposedly melting at a rate that will eventually raise the sea level, then why has no one proposed the most obvious measure to avert such a potential catastrophe? What obvious measure, you ask? Utilize naturally occurring land depressions (below sea level), existing on every continent and are typically arid inland saline seas or basins, to serve as natural over-spill reservoirs into which excess ocean water could be channeled, via constructed canals and/or underground aqua ducts. If such construction had begun as Al Gore promoted his "Global Warming" hype in the 1990’s, such a global sea level maintenance system could perhaps have been in place 15 years ago. Has this not been implemented nor even proposed, due to such authoritarians not truly believing their own narrative as much as they only desire to excessively tax society for simply exhaling carbon dioxide?
Rampant deforestation, toxic contamination of fertile soils and ground water, and most critically, the gradually dying oceans are seriously concerning issues. Societies preoccupying themselves with carbon dioxide emissions while Co2 doesn't even accumulate beyond a trace amount within the Earth's atmosphere is the epitome of taking our eye off the ball and barking up the wrong tree. It's time for everyone to wake-up!
Why, you ask? If the Terra-forming of Mars is ever accomplished, such a feat will imply at least two prior occurrences: One, extensive colonization, which translates into many humans living on Mars. Two, the Martian atmosphere was successfully transformed into a much denser atmosphere, which would extend its outreach into space as well as its frictional drag on any objects in close orbit to Mars. At only 3700 miles above the surface of Mars, Phobos definitely falls into the category of a catastrophe looming overhead. Just as triggering a preliminary avalanche renders a ski-slope safe from such a danger to skiers, perhaps a single nuclear explosive-pulse on the leading side of Phobos would be enough to slow its orbital velocity, and allow Mars to gravitate Phobos to wind inward to ultimately collide into Mars. It needs to done before any permanent colonization is established on Mars!

Earth = 7,926 miles
Mars = 4,220 miles
Average distance from Sun:
Earth = 93,000,000 miles
Mars = 142,000,000 miles
Length of year (duration of one orbital revolution around the Sun):
Earth = 365.25 days
Mars = 687 days
Length of day (duration of one planetary rotation):
Earth = 24 hrs
Mars = 24 hrs + 37 m (It wouldn't hurt to speed that up just a bit)
Earth = 23.5 degrees
Mars = 25 degrees
(Since Mars is considerably farther from the Sun, it would be ideal for Mars to have a significantly less axis tilt, perhaps 10 degrees Max.)
The last two stats could possibly be improved upon by strategically colliding the largest asteroids from the asteroid belt into Mars.
This is one of those rare images where it seems no red-enhancing filter was applied to the image, if they ever are, because the sky reveals a slightly bluish-gray cast to it, just as the first Viking images from Mars revealed bluish colored skies in 1976. When looking up the image credits, I read the following: "image transformed to Earth-like atmospheric view," yeah right! If so, why mislead? When someone who misleads tells you they're misleading, that's probably when your're technically not being misled and you're likely getting the truth (a non-contrived image) for once.

There have been those who have accused NASA of enhancing various images of Mars and Martian surface photos with red-enhancing filters. This particular image seems to potentially substantiate such a claim. If this is true, the great question would be: Why? I admit, the redder Mars images appear, the less potentially habitable Mars seem to be. (Food for thought!)
Perhaps future explorations on Mars will reveal that mankind's first voyage to Mars was instead mankind's return to what may be the original "Old World." We must be open to the possibility of such a revelation.
I've lost track of the number of times over the decades the news media has reported the discovery of water on Mars, as if it's a new revelation each time.
If you look closely, there appears to be a rather large pooling of water at the bottom of the above Martian canyon, probably an offshoot of Valles Marineris. Unfortunately, due to the limitations of this hosting site's templates/software, this normally zoom-capable image does not zoom-in, but when zoomed-in, this image reveals an eroded main channel from the left of the pool of water that leads to what appears to be a narrow but relatively tall waterfall at the left end of the Martian lake/pond. Canyons on Mars are even more grand!
I'll bring along my quick-assemble, modular tri-vector, mini-biosphere dwelling! If enough of these structures are duplicated and interconnected, such a layout forms hexagonal courtyards and ultimately configures a honeycomb pattern from an aerial perspective. Perhaps geodesic greenhouse domes could be incorporated within the above mentioned courtyards.

The above image reveals a substantial overcast condition on Mars at the time the this photo was taken by the rover, "Curiosity." Reported comparisons state that the Martian atmosphere is over 100 times thinner than Earth's at their respective surfaces, which is the equivalent to being 18 miles above the Earth's surface in respect to air thinness. The highest Noctilucent clouds within Earth's upper atmosphere can occur up to 50 miles above Earth, but 12 miles is the Max. among the more typical cloud types occurring within the lower atmosphere. It would seem that Mars is pushing the limits in respect to conditions conducive to cloud formation, but I imagine there could be other conditions that may factor into such cloud development on Mars, or perhaps the Martian atmosphere isn't as thin as we are led to believe. Again, a Martian atmosphere perceived as too thin instills the notion of non-habitability, just like the seemingly applied red filters would, by potentially concealing bluish colored skies on Mars. I'm just speculating!
There will be free speech on Mars!
The right for anyone to freely express one's own self via unlimited speech is far more sacred than the supposed right of another to not be offended. Besides, the offended are recruited by their own subjectivity. There is no exception to free speech! Those who wish for censorship to rule at the end of the day, typically claim at least one exception in order to establish a precedent that they hope leads to many more. We've all heard the ignorant argument: "You can't yell FIRE in a crowded theater!" Well, you certainly can, if there is a fire. If one knowingly misleads others to believe there is a fire when there isn't, and such deceit logically compels those, who perceive themselves at risk, to act in a desperate manner that leads to either the endangerment or harm of themselves and/or others, then such communication may be deemed as criminal misconduct and no longer just speech.
In respect to content of speech, anyone may hypothesize anything he or she sincerely believes to be either true, possible, or improbable, regardless of whom may deem such a theory as impossible. Theories potentially open minds to the discovery of truths that otherwise may never be realized without such notions expressed for the rest of us to consider. When free speech is characterized in this manner, then it is no mystery as to why tyrannical regimes impose censorship.
The lack of evidence isn't what disproves a theory, but rather proof of its contrary and sometimes that's impossible to prove. The best thing that can happen to a theory itself is for it to be confirmed as fact, then it is obviously no longer theory. The second-best occurrence for a theory is for it to never be proven nor disproved, thus forever leaving hope for its possibility. The second worst outcome for a theory is for it to be disproved or debunked. The absolute worst scenario for any theory is for it to never be considered nor given a chance. Many conspiracies are real and theorizing the existence of one is absolutely legitimate!
