    Humans love to explore. Strangely enough even horrible places – like Mars. Let’s see how building a Mars base could work and how insanely nerve-wracking exactly it would be.

    Can't you use 2 large metal rods and power them with electricity to make a magnetic field around a fairly large area. And exposing poop to mars atmosphere and simple "cleaning of dirt" and you will have plenty of soil to work with.

    Simple explanation for everything, courtesy of The Martian..

    Use oxygen and water reclaimers to have continual supplies, use treated faeces as manure for plant bacterial growth in the soil (separate for each person though), line the habitats and suits with a thin layer of lead to prevent radiation poisoning and use a mix of high energy efficient solar power and nuclear power for energy.

    Have multiple air locks to allow for external ventures while one is being repaired if damaged, have a decontamination area for the dust, the perchlorates have been mathematically proven to be non-lethal, and even if they were, just wash the dirt by boiling the salt out of the dirt. Grow the plants inside, where a continental power supply and controllable environment allow for maximum plant growth. Start with potatoes as they are the most versatile food and have pretty much every thing humans need except for calcium. Build a refinery to extract the iron in the Martian soil and use it to build more.

    It's better to send robots with AI to transform Mars into a planet to live on. However, I believe our priority should be to take care of our planet Earth.

    What bothers me is when they say solar panels on Mars and the output of the Sun light on Mars. In space on Earth the Sun lights 10 times brighter Mars being further away they say only has 40 or 60% lot of Earth I think it's a conspiracy the Martian atmosphere is only 1% it can't block out much sunlight and I don't think that 1% can hold very much just particles yes very fine ones do get kicked up but you can see clearly on Mars most of the time 99% of the time and very great distance and very clear. Actually Moore should have more light than Earth. I think this is one of those conspiracy things for real where they can get to use nuclear power on mars or use nuclear power in space and think about the solar panels that they sent to Mars if it was only 40% light. On Earth that same Rover if you would have to cut the panel I don't think it would have been enough why to even move the Rovers cuz you can imagine what the only 40% of the solar panels would look like on that Rover if they were only 40%

    We Can’t Even Get Along With, Take Care Of And Even Feed The People And Animals Here On Our Home, Earth, And Were Talking About Colonizing And Establishing A Permanent Base On A Planet Thats (at least) 34 Million And (at most) 250 Million Miles Away From Earth. You Don’t Build A Skyscraper On A Foundation Made Of Balsa Wood Guys.

    Life is all about evolution and adaptation.. If people went to live there their organisms would adapt much quicker than you think... We don't need to make an Earth-like ecosystem there to adapt to us, we'd adapt to anything provided there's minmum quantities of light, warmth, minerais and oxygen..
    Only we wouldn't be humains anymore 😆
