    So in other words we can't live on Mars surface, we need to go undeground? That is terrible. How to change metal center of Red Planet?! That is impossible!

    Humans: "Mars is toxic but somehow we will manage to feed everyone."

    Also humans: "Earth is a garden of food but we still can't feed everyone."

    What about a venus base? It has more gravity and a thicker atmosphere. We could even use the same terraforming tech to help out earth.

    what about nuking mars? Is it possible? If so then what effects would it have? and How would we do it? Could be good time to get rid of them from earth too!

    I see no advantage to colonizing Mars. Besides, colonizing at the level in the video won't be feasible for at least 200 years.

    Seems like the first real step is making more robust robotics to mitigate the dust issue.
    Perhaps built in orbital foundries, from harvested astroids.

    If Elon Musk knows all these problems and yet he still wants to go to mars, then he probably have a solution to all these problems, i think..

    why do they dont just dig deep underground since the radiation cant get there (i think at least i dont am a scientist) also storms and mars dust woudlnt be a probem either plus in your own cave you can bring your own dirt that platnts can grow on oxygen also woudlnt be a problem anymore cuz of the plants the only problem would be to dig that hole in the first place
