China wants to build a sustainable human presence on Mars. Here's how.

Ambitious hubris on China's part, or anyone's, to say the least. Reading the above article, I was reminded of my one-time landing long ago at Wake Island. Unlike Mars, Wake Island has the natural beauty of sky and sea vistas, a nice place to visit for refueling and then be off quickly, because it's out in the middle of the lonely Pacific. The boredom and ennui must have been overwhelming for the residents, mostly military and contractors, waiting for the next arriving aircraft or supply ship. How such long term feelings of loneness and remoteness might be on a Mars colony is beyond my conception.
