This is part 2 of a 2-part series dealing with living on Mars.
This is the second session in a two evening series discussing preparing to live on Mars. Tonight, we’ll show and discuss two TED talks:
The Living Tech We Need to Support Human Life on Other Planets - What would it take to settle Mars? In a talk about the future of space exploration, Lynn Rothschild reviews the immense challenges to living elsewhere in the universe and proposes some bold, creative solutions to making a home off planet Earth – like “growing” houses out of fungi or using bacteria to help generate electricity.
Venus is too hot, Mars is too cold, and Earth is just right says planetary scientist Dave Brain. But why? In this pleasantly humorous talk, Brain explores the fascinating science behind what it takes for a planet to host life – and why humanity may just be in the right place at the right time when it comes to the timeline of life-sustaining planets.
Join us and weigh in on the matter.
