Living on Mars will be different from Earth
Just came across a news video, where the anchor was asking the audiences if they would like to live on Mars.
It left me wondering, what would it be like to live there. Firstly, men would feel at home(that's a joke). But I feel for people who have already spent 10 or 15 years on Earth, they would be very excited at this prospect of living on a new planet.
Imagine the soil, the environment, the locales everything would be way different than what it is here on Earth. Also, for the lovers of fast food no one can gaurantee you McDonalds', KFCs, Subways, Dominoes', Pizza Huts, Baskin Robbins', etc on your new planet. Fast food joints may or may not be able to spread their wings on Mars.
And imagine the sky view there. I just imagined what could it be like just now.
I don't know for how long will the Sunrays be available on the planet- for the same duration as Earth or more. In case, it is less we will have a longer night life to enjoy. Or maybe not, maybe there will not be any discotheques there. What about the restaurants- will they be open at night or should I ask will there be any eateries at all.
Many questions, but life on Mars will be unique for sure. And imagine the journey upto Mars.
If given a chance, I would definitely embark on the journey. Would you?

I would not want to travel to Mars because of the many unknowns. The Space Flight in itself may kill a person way before getting there and if the people were lucky enough to arrive safely there, the cold, the odd gravity and all the other unknowns may kill. So, no, I will stay on Earth.

I wouldn't want to go but a Dutch company has plans to place a colony on Mars. You can read about it here http://www.mars-one.com/

I just read an article the other day in the "Reader's Digest", written by the husband of a woman who signed up to fly to Mars to set up a colony, and he described her scientific inquisitiveness and her desire to explore where no one has ever explored before.
