THE FIRST 10,000 DAYS ON MARS (Timelapse)

The story begins in 2024 when Elon Musk and SpaceX launch 5 cargo ships to Mars. They land at Erebus Montes, paving the way for future humans to land, the construction of Mars Base Alpha, plants to grow, and later for a self sustainable Mars colony.

This Mars colonization mini documentary also covers what it is like living on Mars, how many people will be landing during each launch window mission, the Starship fleet, and how the Martian colony grows over the years, between 2024 to 2050.

  • Printers - you've got to mine and process the feedstock anyways, using binding matrix from earth. Then you've got to line them. Tunnels - dig them out, carry the material to the surface, seal with airlocks, that's it. Process the mined matl if its useful. We'll be mining anyway, why not live in the tunnels too? Huge voids - cris cross several stories, detonate nukes to collapse, and you'd have an enormous bubble.

  • I just think it's a waste of time and effort building extensive surface facilities when Elon is obviously developing his tunneling acumen for Mars. The 1st 2 years could see a few miles of tunnels with reservoirs where water and fuel could be stored as well as processed. Nuclear tunnelers can work 24/7/365 carving out enormous amounts of pressurized, radiation-free space while humans are busy fitting it out. Printers just couldn't keep up.

If 1/4th of the energy and resources are used in our planet than we are well of. Why waste resources of earth to build other planet that is not hospitable for sustaining life. Its like making paper from trees and writing on it dont cut trees

    • Women cannot conceive children on Mars. Once you leave the relationship of the moon and the earth there is no menstrual cycle. Remember who told you. Dont ask how i know its ( Redacted).

  • so earth is literally going to become factory for producing goods and other materials to mars. All the rich will travel to the mars and the poor and middle class is gonna stay in earth and work for their needs. l By the time 2040-2050 the earth would be totally collapsed, and rich people escapes and others suffer. Why don't these huge companies invest on earth?? i think the energy and cost will be cheaper than investing on mars. elon and other rich guys knows that earth is not gonna hold for few years but they are not telling the people. Its a joint project of riches in the world as they want to escape the earth. Invest in earth you morons . why do you even work hard for growing plants on mars while you can do it in earth very easily and there is zero cost for that. people who thinks this is great then i can tell you you are watching a alot of sci-fi movies and in reality you are going to suffer by supporting these shit ideas.

Six months and women start getting sickly they must have the moon There is no menstruating. 1.5 years and you want to go home You can’t condition all the muscle fiber yes bone density decreases Our containers are built for this planet Don’t ask me how I know there’s classifications. 🤨☝️

  • Using biodome plants to produce air. Good idea. But where is the idea of using artic mosses genetically engineered to withstand the harsher environment. The place to start with plants actually growing on Mars is to start with Artic plants. Genetically modified. Slowly exposed to a more Mars like environment. Allow the plant time to adapt. And keep on playing with it's genome. We are perfectly capable of doing this. So why the hell don't we.

  • Selling science fiction as real science should be criminalized. You portray this endevaour as if we have already posess the answers to solve every problems right now. The real science were left behind in order to produce some sort of hurray-optimistic to do list, which omitted the real engineering and scientific challenges. And by the way GCR gets through the regolith and breaks into secondary radiation (X-ray). You can't just print yourself a shield. You would need to go deep under the surface, into windowless mines. Enjoy your troglodyte life, while your skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular systems deteriorate because of the constant exposure to low gravity. Radiation accumulates in the body, so after exhausting the yearly limit, you would spend the rest of the year underground. Plus if you were stupid enough to just print yourself a little regolith hill you will reach your carieer limit of radiation exposure. According to certain calculations this will happen to the first astronauts visiting Mars: When they will come back to Earth, they won't be able to fly into space ever. Oh and lets hope pregnancy won't kill the mother because of low-g. Because fludis travel upwards and congregate in bad places in the human torso, pregnancy might be a suicide on Mars.
