Why do people want to colonize Mars?
« on: September 11, 2019, 10:07:03 AM »
I can understand why people want to examine Mars, even visit it. Who knows what might be found there. But I don't get why anyone would want to live there permenatnly when it's a barren inhospitable wasteland. I suppose the l lack of mosquitoes would be a plus, also no crowds, and you get to wear cool space suits all the time. Never mind, sign me up :P. In all seriousness though, unless there's a secret garden underneath the surface you'd be completely dependent on importing food, medical, and building supplies from Earth much like living in Antarctica, and no-one lives there. It's just researchers visiting for the purpose of doing research.
