As I've suggested before, they could even put another space station or two between the Earth and Mars and then just leapfrog there, a step at a time, to conserve and accumulate supplies for the colony.
Yeah, um, you're going to have to explain that a little better. The closest we can get to "putting a spacestation between Earth and Mars" is to build one at one of Earth's lagrange points. It's not like Earth and Mars sit in one place and you can just build a station at the halfway point between them. They orbit the sun at different rates and are constantly moving in relation to each other.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
