Jonathan Eastwood, director of the Space Lab at Imperial College London, explains about the city:
“I think the biggest challenge in terms of a sustained presence on Mars is not the engineering [or scientific] challenge, but the human [and] personal one.
So not just to answer the question about how do you survive, but how do you thrive?”
