Yeah but we could spend 50-100 years letting machines do all that before we send algea, then plants, and then after 150-200 years, then humans... Give
them at least a chance.
My timescales could be off by as much as 50% but that still leaves 75-150 years before we should consider sending humans to COLONIZE...
A short visit... Sure.
Unless of course they are planning to or being forced to, release all the hidden technology. Then sure. We could probably live anywhere then. Except
Maybe the surface or center of the sun...MAYBE.
Maybe a space station orbiting mars with a few shuttles for travel to and from the surface would help, so earth deliveries of new supplies could just
dock with the space station and then the staff working the station could make deliveries to the colony. So you'd essentially need a whole other
colony in space. It would obviously be a long term mission for any astronauts. So an artifical gravity would be required to maintain bone and muscle
What would be weird is if living on mars somehow changed the colonists...into, I don't know, something DIFFERENT. Maybe just something in the DNA
gets changed or activated differently than on earth, so that we still look human but just use different parts of our brain or jist think differently.
Maybe some senses are strenthened while others are weakened, same with emotions... Or Maybe the entire anatomy will change and they truly will be a
different species... Maybe they won't find out anythings wrong until the second or third generation they are born with tails and razor sharp
Or maybe it increases intelligence 10 fold and makes us incredibly violent, so that a group of 20 martians could take over the earth, cause they're
so smart and all they want to do is to conquer
Maybe that's the frequency sent out by a dead planet, telling its most intelligent inhabitants to go out an find a new home, but above all else,
survive, and ensure the survival of your descendants, by any and all means necessary... And it gives them a final blast of energy lasting 50-100
million years that speeds the evolution, giving them the means to survive without their mother planet... one final gift from a loving matriarch...
Well it served its purpose and we escaped to earth millions of years ago...decimating the dinosaurs in the process But we did not realize that
returning to mars would have an effect on us as the frequency blast is still going for another 500,000 years...
