I think colonizing space will be inevitable. Mars seems to have quite a bit
of water underground as well as evidence of caves to protect the colonists
from radiation. And as demand for rare earth minerals intensify the
financial incentive to mine the Moon will be greater, although I hope they
mine the farside and not the near side of the Moon. And someone is willing
to spend 28 million dollars to spend 11 minutes with Jeff Bezos then
they're willing to spend millions in a space station.
