Deep Space Travel and the Next Propulsion system

More on Propulsion systems with the release of news from NASA of the Next engine and Ion propulsion system that could travel at ninety thousand miles per hour, that's the moon in less than three hours, whoa !
 As I pointed out in a recent post about other propulsion systems that are on test there are a variety of engines that may just come online and this is one of them. I wonder if perhaps this might be used to send those who have volunteered to go to Mars one way ? This method of travel would certainly cut the journey time down tremendously.
