Nasa is planning an audacious mission to send a manned spacecraft on a one-way trip to permanently settle on other planets.
The ambitious idea is known as the Hundred Years Starship and would send astronauts to colonise planets like Mars, knowing they could never come home.
NASA Ames Director Pete Worden revealed that one of NASA’s main research centres, Ames Research Centre, has received £1million funding to start work on the project.

I think using the term "Starship" for transporting some guys to Mars is overreaching a bit.

Early in the planning for the moon shot they considered making it a one way trip. The idea was "Get the astronauts there, and we'll figure out how to get them home later."

Image if you could terraform 10 acres / person.  This could be one hell of a potential bug out shelter.
If the colony could continue to terraform to give 10 acres per person, and if you breed at an aggressive rate (1 kid per 3 years of childbearing years).  Starting with 10 women could easily give you a population of 5-10,000 in 100 years.

it would only take a handful of harems to make a pretty populated mars.

NASA would not "leave" them there.

Some vital piece of sub-contracted equipment would fail 2 years in, everyone dies - we spend the next 30 seconds wondering what happened before flipping over to the next season of Dancing with Disabled Immigrants and Ultimate Midget Championship PPV events.

I think I remember reading that it was something like a 160 person population that would be needed to provide enough genetic diversity to sustain 1000 years of breeding...lemme see if I can find the actual numbers.

Moore suggests that 150-180 initial inhabitants would be optimal to insure and sustain a healthy population for more than 20 centuries without significant inbreeding

Obviously didn't do the research myself, so if you disagree, take it up w/ Moore.

Not a bad idea actually.

Once they get there after trillions of government-sponsored research and expenditures, they simply announce "Mars is all oil and gold under the dust".

Since money seems to be one of the biggest obstacles, NASA needs to recruit corporate sponsors, and then allow these sponsors to exploit the colonization project for their own monetary gain. For example, a major TV network sponsor could do TV shows from Mars that showcased the hostile climate and reduced gravity ("Survivor Mars", "Monday Night Martian Football", "Martian NASCAR Racing", "Championship Martian Rodeo Bullriding").

In essence, a colony on Mars could have a useful, profitable purpose long before any means of transporting people or materials back to Earth was developed: Its inhabitants could serve as entertainment for the rest of us.

I would go.  I would choose a female olympic shooter to go with me (preferably a hot one).  In 1000 years our offspring would return to Earth to crush the inhabitants underfoot and take back what is rightfully theirs.
