Why should astronauts go to Mars?

My class has been studying Mars for quite a while now. During some research, I have found out that people are planning on going to Mars in the future. I'm just wondering, why should people try to go to Mars? Think of what you can do with all that money that they are using.

The research, advancements in space travel...if we make Mars can we take another step forward, colonizing..keep the human race going(what IF something happens to Earth) and the thrill. Humans been migrating and exploring since man could walk, why not take it further.

To find out about new things. It is helpful to spend money on Mars because in the past we have been finding clues which kind of signify that there is a possibility that we can find ourselves a new home and there might be some extra-terrestrial beings in this universe, we always have been wondering about.

I view it as more of a backup plan for the human race than anything else. Say some nuclear bomb kills the majority of the population, we get overrun by aliens, or some plague spreads through the whole world. The human race wouldn't just die out.

The same reason Columbus sailed off to discover the new world. We should never stop learning or exploring whats next. If we did that we would still be walking around like cave men.
