Description

Humans will live in cities on Mars within 50 to 100 years, but it will be a 'really s**it place to be', according to physicist Brian Cox.

Speaking to MailOnline, the scientists from Oldham said that despite its difficulties, moving to hellish planets such as Mars may be inevitable if we're to survive.

Professor Cox, best known for presenting Stargazing Live and Wonders of the Universe, says he's confident we'll land on red planet within a decade.

But he says we should not get too excited as it is little more than a 'barren rock', which pales in comparison to our 'wonderful, beautiful' planet.
