Why explore Mars?

Why go there with all likelihood of never returning?
That question came up as people were discussing the recent application to be the first to try living here, on Earth in a colony like they would be on Mars.

A certain number of people will be confined for a period of time.
As if they went to Mars.

It is a good idea, experiment, dry run.
Will be interested in seeing the progress.

As far as why go?

Most of us came from somewhere else, if you look back a few generations,
maybe many places.
Choosing Mars over Earth makes sense to me on some level.
Certainly to be part of a pioneering space mission would be very cool.
So I can see why someone might want to go to Mars.

Why is it that some people could never imagine that?
