  1. One thing that I didn’t see mentioned within the ‘dome’ design was micro- to mini-meteorite hits on the dome. Mars has such a puny atmosphere that ‘small stuff’ can make it straight to the ground. I’m as suming that one bb-sized hit would depressurize a dome. Remember the scene from “The Martian” on depressurization effects? So, I’d design for small, inter-airlocked domes; a thousand of them…

  2. This is the first article that I’m testing out.
    No problem clicking to the article.
    Martian dwelling implications aside and for expediency’s sake, I think this is really cool, as I have an interest in alternative architecture and the use of geothermal heating and cooling properties.

  3. One has to wonder how long those inflatable plastic domes will last due to the wind driven sands. Doesn’t seem too practical or robust. You would have to build in sheltered areas, I assume.
    I never really understood why you would send probes over that distance and not explore Cydonia, obviously one of the more interesting places on the planet. Who knows, maybe we have and simply “can’t handle the truth”.
