    This is the kind of population to square mile ratio I could get down with.

    I"m sort of an Astronomy Nerd. Here are some facts about Mars:
    - Mars is named for the Roman God of War.
    - Mars (4,223 miles in diameter) is just over half the size of Earth (7,926.41 miles)
    - Mars has seasons- Summer in the Southern Hemisphere can reach 68 degrees F. Winters, which are longer, temp. plunge to -284 F
    - Mars has a thin atmosphere and significant reserves of water (Subterranean Ice).
    - The color of Mars lies in the brick colored surface material called Limonite, which is also found in the Earths deserts.
    - Winds blow across the surface at 125 mph. Sand storms are common and large enough to be viewed with a telescope.
    - A Martian year is 687 Earth years and a Day there is 24 hours and 37 minutes.
    - Mars has two moons- Phobes and Deimos
    - Billions of years ago the Martian surface was covered with massive Volcanos and possible surface water from flash floods.
    - Mars still posses the largest volcano in the Solar system, Olympus Mons. Olympus Mons (most likely extinct) is 375 miles across and rises 17 miles off the surface.
    - Mars also has an impact crater called Argyre Planitia that is 125 miles across.

    If we were to send people to Mars it would take at least 6 months to get there and we're aren't talking about the space shuttle. Multiple people would have to go and the ride there alone would create such a murderous cabin fever amongst the astronauts the Nasa is unsure how to go about it. Rock on Nerds

    I know this concerns me greatly.

    This is the coolest shit ever, I don't care what anyone else thinks.

    Who else would live on mars, alone in the middle of nowhere (except
    maybe with your girlfriend and subsequent kids)? I would, in a heartbeat.
    As long as I have 1) Satellite internet relay to earth and 2) a way to cover
    my physiological needs, I'd live there.

    pipe dreams
