It’s Time for Us to Become a Spacefaring Species – Mars is the Next “New World,” And We’ll Set Foot on it Soon.

July 10, 2017 by Laura Gomez

Establishing a colony on Mars would protect the long-term survival of the human race. At some point, we’re going to need to become a spacefaring species. There’s no better time than now to get started.

Stephen Petranek is a journalist and author of a new book titled How We’ll Live on Mars. Fittingly, he’s here to tell us not just how we’ll live on Mars, but also why and when. The why? As mentioned, we need to get off this rock sooner or later. The when? Within 15 years.
