    Not sure how far you've read the books, so without any spoilers I'm just saying "be careful what you wish for". And that not because of the protomolecule ... just sayin'

    Problem is even with all the money in the world you can only solve the issues of one or maybe 2 countries, you can pour money into failed states till the cows come home and all you will do is enrich some dictators. So unless you wanna take over the entire planet one cannot simply solve the worlds problems and as corona shows a problem on one side of the planet can and will affect everything.

    Hence get your ass to mars!

    How about living conditions, do you consider living in underground complexes self sufficient or you require a fully terraformed Mars?

    Depending on how you define "self sufficient" you can have it in two or three centuries or in 100,000 years or never.

    But unless you start building infrastructure and economy throughout the Solar System you will never get there. Never.
    Good, why go there to live when if you'd ever be able to sustain life on another world without earth it'd have to be in another solar system. Keep being ignorant as you can be though.

    WYM you dont think living in a hermetically sealed underground cavern and eating nutrient paste derived in part from human feces while working 24/7 on terraforming projects is a desirable way to live???

    You need to travel more, a large % of the global population would probably consider that a massive upgrade in QOL.

    Well it's what's waiting for us on Earth, so why not live that way on Mars?

    Mars One mission was also once stated as a goal and now it is closed. I don't know if it really matters, but if NASA could succeed, because it is not a private company..

When it fell it damaged the dish, tearing a 30-meter gash in it, and also damaged several of the panels making up the Gregorian dome.

    Wasn't the broken dish a battlefield 3 multi-player map?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Wonder if they will have Michael Bay direct the "controlled demolition"? It seem too good an opportunity to pass.
