    I'm the only one thinking that Space Colonization is just another escapism,a optimistic one at the far oppositely of Doom preppers ?

    You can add the energy budget by adding water to solar panels so you can get 44% of Earth’s power of Solar panels.

    I won't ever get to Mars, but my name is among those etched on a computer chip attached to the Curiosity Rover. Which I think is pretty darned cool ☺

    And yet we get a chance to destroy a second Planet.

    I really hope that if this is really possible one Day ,
    humankind has learned from its Mistakes made on Earth.

    in order to get windows, we could have virtual windows made out of screens, screening a live feed from outside the base through a camera to boost mindset.

    LOP-G is cancelled. We will never get to Mars. It's all just trying to get money from boomer investors.

    Mars has been a meme for the past 50 years. The politicians announce it, get their press response and clicks - then the whole thing gets cancelled.

    Isnt that the more people (who are specialized in different fields) the safe it becomes? Assuming we have already built a fairly safe environment.

    An artificial magnetic field on mars could be created instead of having to use co2 and all that stuff. Of course it would be hard, but in the end would be more beneficial.

    All of these amazing, scientific achievements Humans could realise... If we just stopped giving all the money to useless celebrities and corrupt officials. We're our own virus, but I suppose it's all natural and the way it's meant to be. We were supposed to stare, awe-stricken at the stars, while eating ourselves from within.
