Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 2 Oct 16,Facebook debate: Life on Mars
Could humans psychologically adapt to live on Mars? We know how to get there and what it’s like, but is it viable for humans to exist in an isolated, confined and extreme (ICE) environment?Adapting is the challenge
Scientists know how to reach Mars and see the reality over the Earth. Even though human nature wants to do something new and create a record, there are some obstacles for staying on Mars because the adaptability is the real challenge. The main drawbacks are the cold climatic conditions and the air density. More radiation will come from space. Despite the sheer distance to Mars, the main disadvantages may not encourage us to adapt to living there. Otherwise, I think many would have migrated by now!
