You make a good point, Schrodinger, but the answer is quite simple. We build the spaceships and send out the astronauts to begin the work of terraforming Mars to make it habitable. Only the astronauts will be mostly remote-controlled androids for the first few hundred years.

No need to wait that long! With the help of its team, Robonaut 2 -- or R2 for short, the humanoid robot, was sent to the International Space Station aboard Discovery as part of the STS-133 mission. and is now working there
