Space Colonies

Mars
Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  October 18, 2018

To build a future Martian colony is one of the biggest technological challenges that humankind has ever faced. This is due to a number of difficulties, such as, the vast distance meaning space flight will take six to nine months. The extremely thin Martian atmosphere means we must develop different landing techniques to get to the Martian surface. This combined with the amount of radiation could mean lethal consequences on human health... but will it be our only option?
