Hell, we could terraform mars in 20 years to an earth like planet full of lush forests with enough money. The problem is the fact that if we send humans to mars, they need to be in tip top shape (and i mean super strong) to be able to survive the first settlement. Sadly, how every long it takes (its like 6 months or something isn't it?) causes about a 60% muscle mass loss in 0 gravity. If they can find an effective way of creating an artificial gravitational pull or something then we can get to mars hella easy.
They can simulate some gravity by rotating the spacecraft
