and algae will be enough
Algae wont survive the low pressures, radiation and sub artic temperatures. It only LOOKS like Arizona
Yes i had to look this up:

On the surface of Mars you would receive up to 30 microsieverts per hour (half that at times). Power plant employees are allowed 250 millisieverts annually. If you spent a year on the Mars surface, at the max exposure, you would get 262.8 millisieverts of exposure.

Also, check out the new species of fungus feeding on the Chernobyl radiation:

Inside your head.
Time to stop with the fantasy. It ain't gonna happen. If it does, they'll all die there alone.
First 2 minutes tells you why
Unless we destroy ourselves first, humanity will colonize the entire solar system. You may not recognize them but they will do it. I guarantee it.
people will be living in man made cities in space before colonize another planet .

If there are to be colonies off this planet, they will likely be space stations and not on planets. If we do use planets for mining or agriculture, most of the work will be robotic and the people will live on stations outside the atmosphere.
That`s a nice point. I guess building ISS in the orbit of Mars/Venus would be a much better idea than building a base on the surface. However, the mining campaign can cause some international conflicts which can lead to a war

How do humans exist on Venus, or Pluto?
Terraforming.
LOL send Arnold
bacteria and algae will be enough
Both need constant water of which Mars has none available that is not frozen at the poles. However you can still send Arnold
So we'll NEVER be able to engineer algae or bacteria that can survive floating in Venus' atmosphere?

Venus' surface pressure is high than Earth's as is its surface temperature. Somewhere, between space and the surface is a very pleasant place to float around in.

People have been living in space for decades now so you are certainly right but large scale colonization won't be a one or another choice, both will happen together.

We can visit Mars for a short time like we did the moon but the soil is toxic and the radiation is intense. We won't stay very long.

The problem is, it's a 2 year trip, minimum. To the moon is only a few days.

That's a LOOONG time to go without an equipment malfunction that could cost everyone their lives.

And MOST of the mars landings ended in failure

Is there a reason to speculate that we will be able to do this when God failed?

God failed? You mean He tried, but the challenge was just too great -- for GOD????? :auiqs.jpg:

After only 1 year in space.

How a year in space affected Scott Kelly’s health​

A comparison to his twin looks at how long-term spaceflight changes the human body​


.........................
But to learn how space really impacts health may call for even longer trips. A mission to Mars and back would take an estimated 30 months. It would also send astronauts beyond Earth’s protective magnetic field. That field shields against DNA-damaging radiation from solar flares and cosmic rays.

Only astronauts on the lunar missions have gone beyond Earth’s magnetic field. None of those trips lasted more than a few days each. So no one has spent even one year in that unprotected environment, let alone 2.5 years.

Nah God merely knows where to work as opposed to people like you who want to breath the atmosphere on Venus. Go for it stupid

Most people don't have a clue how big Space is.

If the sun was the size of a golf ball the nearest star would be about 760 miles away.

It would take the entire energy output of the world for three years to propel a spacecraft the size of a Shuttle to 20% the speed of light.

...and Mars is relatively "close".

Not if an ion drive is employed, though I agree that blowing stuff off the Earth is meaningless

Nobody wants to face the fact that the earth is humanity's home/prison.

People have been brainwashed by science FICTION

Do you even read??

I'm the guy who says well NEVER colonize the planets.

Your stupidity is getting tiresome

Not so long ago the Oceans imprisoned people to where they were. Soon space will just be another ocean to cross
