MARCO POLO Blogging #2: But the cost would be prohibitive . . .
MARCO: Given the opportunity and the technology to make it happen, would you consider living on the Moon or on Mars? Would you? Which would you choose, why, and what requirements (other than air, water, food, heat, shelter, etc.) would you take with you?
POLO: If I could, I guess I’d live for a year on Mars – provided there was a nice, big human-friendly habitat all set up for me. There’s no way I’d rough it on Mars. I don’t even rough it on Earth. And I’d choose Mars over the Moon because I prefer a little more gravity so as not to lose critical bone and muscle mass.
I’d take 1. my family 2. reading material and 3. coffee. Well, definitely the reading material and the coffee . . .
How ’bout you?
Comment below for your “POLO.”
