    So, now that Mars has water, who is planning to buy some off the plan surface domes?

    I plan to land bank for a while

    I will build the first KFC on Mars. If only there was a good KFC Buyers Agent to help offload it for me.

    who should we buy it from? Who own the bulk? I wonder if it's cheap to buy a big chunk and subdivide later. Need to be close to water in terms of location. I think that's the prime location there

    Strata HVAC costs could blow out though ;)

    What with the chilly -200 degree winters and those 'warm' -50 degree summers.

    Jokes aside, I read somewhere the other day that scientists think by setting off a few neutron bombs on the surface, it would expedite the terraforming to warm up the climate enough to make it more Earth-like?!?

    Land on mars would be a great investment with a longterm buy and hold strategy.

    Just wait 'til Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos terraform the place..

    Long term as in a century or two :)

    If Mars is colonized, It'll probably be done for mining very very precious metals or something like that. No point in moving 200 million kilometers to build a house unless Earth is in serious s**t.

    Heck, we didn't even colonize Antarctica and there are estimates of some pretty valuable stuff in the ground.

    The only mining being considered on Mars is for materials needed for its colonisation. It's unlikely to be cost effective to return materials to earth unless our understanding of physics is incredibly wrong. Mining asteroids in near earth orbit is another matter...

    The longer term plan is to colonise mars to back up our species BEFORE a disaster strikes...which is only a matter of time, whether an impact event, gamma ray burst pointing in our direction or something of our own doing.

    Really depends on what is being mined though. Say, fuel for fusion reactors for example. Don't need tons of it like coal. Interplanetary travel will get a lot cheaper in the next few decades. Launching missions entirely from our orbit will make a lot of difference in total cost involved. Fully automated mining vessels are much cheaper than manned missions.

    Look at Russia and India - they launch satellites at much much lower costs than the big players like US and EU.

    I agree that colonizing Mars as a potential safe haven for humans. Other options include staying in a high orbit far from Earth to avert disaster and come back when it's safe. Going deep underground and or underwater.

    Buy land on Mars? Are you all crazy. Let's just get there and stake our Claim. Like the wild waaaaaaay west.

    Now what if the planet is already colonized with Martians ie little green men (and women).

    Do we just wipe them all out to prevent future problems? Or do we buy their planet with whacky tobacco and cheap wine? These are things to consider.
