We should be focusing on building the infrastructure on Earth first before doing anything in space. What I mean by this is building space ports around the world, developing new propulsion and material technologies, and encouraging young people that math and science is cool. While our current space infrastructure (in the USA) is decent, it's far from robust. A spacecraft shouldn't have to worry about the weather during take-off or landing, for example. That's retarded in this day and age. A side-effect of building an infrastructure like this is the creation of literally millions of jobs around the world: building of new roads, buildings, and materials, more education funding in the sciences, restaurants popping around the new spaceports to feed the people, etc.
