Could You Make It On Mars Or Are You Better Off Staying On Earth?
SpaceX has been launching rockets left and right this week in preparation for the colonization of Mars, which Elon Musk has scheduled for 2024. The concept may be cool, but before you sign up to be a Martian, remember that life on Mars is nothing like like on Earth. Little comforts and luxuries like oh, I don’t know, fresh water, breathable air, and (a comfortable amount of) gravity are not naturally occurring and in limited supply.
Not everyone has what it takes to make it on Mars, or at least be part of the first Martians. So to find out if you’d thrive on the Red Planet, take this quiz. If you’re in the clear, there’s a seat on the BFR with your name on it. If not, don’t worry. At least we can breathe on our own down here!
