And lets say it was - IDK, if it was the start of an attempt to make Mars habitable and lead by the major world powers - I'd consider going. Hell even if it was a whole bunch of companies who wanted to put up the money, resources - I'd consider it.
I mean I may live/work in cramped quarters and a full spacesuit but I know my work will mean future generations on Mars won't. That is something I can get behind.
But even if it was a legitimate colony (I don't think what the OP linked to is) - that wouldn't be my thing - it sounds like it would be cramped living/working with no plan for the future.
Exploring Mars, walking on Mars may sound good but I doubt it would be that fun to me
It might be fun the first 10-15 times you walk outside on the empty planet, but that sure would get old fast.
