Britain's royal astronomer has claimed that man's colonization of Mars will drive "post-human evolution" and create a "new species".
Sir Martin Rees, a distinguished scientist and former president of the Royal Society, believes that this will include "biomodification and cyborg techniques".
The acclaimed astronomer also believes that the first humans on Mars will be "adventurous adventurers rather than ordinary humans."
The British astronomer Royal added that humanity expects a "bumpy ride" in its quest for survival.

In his new book "About the Future", Sir Martin Rees (pictured) explores the relationship between man and planet Earth. He spoke in an interview with MACH about his book and his beliefs, saying that he did not believe that migration to Mars was the solution
In his new book, "About the Future," Sir Rees explores the relationship between human, planet Earth, and the potential movement to Mars
He talked about his book in an interview with MACH and said that while the population will reach nine billion by 2050, he does not believe migration to Mars is the solution.
"There is the idea that we should despair and evacuate this planet and go elsewhere," Sir Rees said.
"This is a dangerous delusion. I know it was promoted by Elon Musk and my late colleague Stephen Hawking, but I think there is no Planet B.
"The world's problems can not be solved by fleeing the world. They have to be tackled here. "
He further stated that he believes that humans will eventually move to Mars, but there will be no far-reaching migration.
To survive on the red planet, people have to adapt massively, and Sir Rees expects this to happen through the advent of emerging technologies such as "bio-modification and perhaps cyborg techniques."
WHAT ARE THE NASA PLANS FOR A SUITABLE MISSION TO MARS IN THE 2030'S?
Mars has become the next big step for humanity's exploration of space.
But before humans come to the red planet, astronauts will take a series of small steps by returning to the moon for a one-year mission.
Details of a mission in lunar orbit were revealed as part of a timeline of events that led to missions to Mars in the 2030s.
NASA has outlined its four-step plan (pictured), which hopes people will one day visit Mars with the people at the Mars Summit in Washington DC. This will result in several missions to the moon in the coming decades
In May 2017, Greg Williams, Associate Associate Administrator of Policy and Plans at NASA, outlined the space agency's four-stage plan, which he hopes will one day visit Mars, and the expected timetable.
Phase one and two Several trips are made to the lunar space to facilitate the construction of a habitat that serves as a staging area for the journey.
The last hardware delivered would be the actual Deep Space Transport vehicle, with which later a crew was transported to Mars.
A one-year simulation of life on Mars will be conducted in 2027.
Phases three and four start after 2030 and involve constant occupation of the crew into the Mar system and the Martian surface.
Sir Rees said he did not believe that NASA or any other state space agency would complete the colonization of another planet, but it was managed by private companies such as SpaceX or Blue Origin.
The surface of Mars is extremely hostile and people are not adequately prepared for the extremely harsh environment.
To survive on the red planet, people have to adapt massively, and Sir Rees believes this will happen through the advent of emerging technologies.
"They will have every incentive to use bio-modifying and possibly cyborg techniques – interfacing with electronic machines – to adapt to their extraterrestrial environment." Rees.
"They are becoming a new breed pretty fast."
Sir Rees added that Darwinian evolution goes one step further and integrates an intelligent design to create beings capable of functioning higher than today's humans.
He added, "The key question is to what extent it will be flesh and blood and organic intelligence, and to what extent it will be electronic."
Sir Martin Rees also said in the interview that humanity itself is unlikely to wipe itself out, but there are several threats that we "deny".
He claims that climate change and the loss of biodiversity are two of the most important issues that are not currently addressed urgently.
