    the people most likely to be able to afford to pay for the trip aren't going to be knowledgeable about sustainable growing methods, yes? or knowledgeable about much science at all. If something goes wrong, as it always does, who is going to solve their problems?

      Close quarters, zero privacy, no luxuries, no economy, everyone does real work, etc.  There's be nothing for a Harvard-educated MBA or a self-made hustler to do up there.

      The 1% would rather reign in hell on a devastated Earth than serve in the communist paradise on Mars.  They want power and the perks and privileges that power brings, and the place for that would be on Earth.

      Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.
