Having sex and reproducing in space comes with serious scientific and ethical problems. We may need to create a new species of human to make it work.
NASA and other space agencies — as well as individuals like Elon Musk — are actively trying to work towards settlements on Mars. But for a long term colony on Mars to be sustainable, we'll need to be able to have babies there. And that's complicated.
To survive on Mars, we need a ‘technology that replaces what the Earth does.’ This tube might be NASA’s best hope.
NASA wants to visit Mars, and Elon Musk and SpaceX want to colonize it, but traditional life support systems will quickly run out of food, water, air, and other supplies. Plants and bacteria can recycle astronaut waste while growing them food to eat, an approach called bioregenerative life support.
NASA is studying how humans handle long-term isolation to be better prepared for possible future missions to Mars. Here's what it's like.
Scientists found accessible ice sheets on Mars, and it could be a ‘game-changer’ for colonizing the planet
Using images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, scientists found eight sites where the ice is exposed — meaning there could be accessible drinking water.
SpaceX's founder, Elon Musk, said he launched his Tesla Roadster toward Mars because "life cannot just be about solving one sad problem after another."
Mars colonists will get blasted with radiation levels 8 times higher than government limits — here’s what they’re up against
High-energy space radiation will threaten the Mars colonies that Elon Musk hopes to establish with SpaceX, as well as astronaut outposts planned by NASA.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk published a study in the journal New Space that details his plans to boot up a Mars colony and start backing up the human race.
A former NASA scientist says ‘The Martian’ movie ‘is completely doable.’ But Elon Musk’s city on Mars is another story.
The scenario in "The Martian" sci-fi book and movie "is completely doable," according to a former NASA scientist. But building a self-sustaining city on the red planet, as Elon Musk wants to do, is a far greater challenge than a stay of a year or two.
