    But I have followed (as a hobby) the efforts of some dedicated (whacked out?) people to design a Mars colony. As in permanent settlement.

    Poop simply is an invaluable resource for any such undertaking. Also, humble soil is amazing stuff with complex suites of microorganisms being needed to allow plants to uptake nutrients from the dirt.

    Designing a Mars settlement simply does promote appreciation for our bio-sphere here on Earth and the complexities needed to maintain it.

    Democracy is a constant conversation and if we value democracy, our conversation can't be over, yet.
