This topic is dedicated mostly for engineers and space architects, as we plan to focus on establishing numbers of consumption of air, water, electricity etc.
The number of habitants, as well as optimized planning, will play a great role in defining those numbers.
We see this discussion as a one of a key generators of urban planning guidelines for Mars cities.
While on Earth air and water are granted widely - on Mars they become high price goods. Shall we share them for free? Who and how shall pay for them? That is why we would like also to engage economics or jurisdiction.
This is also a place to discuss technical and technological issues concerning food distribution and communication access, waste collection and reuse.
Every freedom of access to goods for people on Earth – on Mars becomes a merchandize to sell or exchange.
The scope of this theme is a proposal only. We are happy to extend it.
Should you have other suggestions, answers or questions - please write a post!
Let’s build together our city on Mars.
