I came across this Mars settlement idea on youtube and was immediately drawn to the idea. One thing I find a little depressing, however, is the fact that Gerard ‘t Hooft talks about part of the American dream consisting of space exploration, even thought ‘t Hooft was born in the  Netherlands. I say depressing, because despite Americas ingenuity and technological leadership, being the first to send a manned mission to Mars is something that is far beyond our capability and will power even though, at one time, we lead the pack when it came to space exploration.

I truly feel that accomplishing such a goal would provide an tremendous economic, not to mention scientific boosts to whom ever or which ever country would be capable of doing it first.
