Why is Mars a match for you?

Mars has multiple similarities to that of Earth allowing us to adjust and be comfortable with any new encounters we may face.

. On Mars you will experience extreme seasons due to the multiple dust storms that occur. We will never get bored of the never ending winter days as seasons are always changing. There are multiple shelters put in place to keep you safe during any threatening dust storm. Another positive is the fact that there is already existing water on mars just in solid form, which is easy to convert into being usable.

. Mars is made up of rocks and not gases making it safer than the surrounding planets such as Jupiter (gas giant). Also with Mars being relatively close to the sun you will only experience 62.5% less gravity than that on Earth as we have produced a building that relies on the centripetal force to stimulate the same gravity. With this machine it will allow our bodies to gradually adjust to less gravity without losing all bone and muscle mass.
