Mars One

Mars One,, is a Dutch organisation with the aim of establishing a permanent human colony on Mars starting in 2024.

Mars is probably the one and only stepping stone between Earth and a habitable exoplanet so establishing a colony there is a wise move.

Indeed! And one of the best books exploring themes of human ingenuity for survival is 'The Martian' by Andy Weir -- an absolutely fabulous read...

Re: Mars One: Discussion extended in Interview

Dr. Dartnell was asked about Mars One during his one hour interview on The Space Show for August 15th.

The point of view I came away with is the (relative) difficulty of creating a civilization on Mars compared to doing so even on a devastated Earth.

Dr. Dartnell emphasized more than once how much better it would be to try to set up a civilization on a near-Earth exoplanet.

Picking up on this idea, I will introduce a new topic in this category.

Hopefully there will be readers who have the appropriate knowledge and skills to develop the idea further.

May every member of The Knowledge forum grow financially, intellectually, socially and beyond.
