Let us jump straight in.
First let us begin with how to source some basics on Mars. Air and Water.
How to Get Air
and Water on Mars - Part I
People can have no idea how easy this is for me.
Malcolm's I.Q. test
I believe that I can build an atmospheric processor for about a tonne and a
half, not including the power supply which is separate. The idea is that I
build one and I test it in Ireland before I launch, and then I take the
parts for another three with me in my cargo hold. I can then build those
three on Mars. It is just to save time so that I can better meet my
My schedule after all is very, very tight.
So that will give me four atmospheric processors for getting air and water

Back in 2013 when I first began to plan for the first
colonies on Mars, geodesics came as the natural choice for me as the
cornerstone of our first colonies on the surface of Mars. That falls
naturally from the properties of geodesic domes. If any have not read my
documents "Geodesic Domes - Parts I - VI" in my section
Construction, this is a critical section to understand
for any interested in these first colonies.
I had heard of the Eden Project, but I had never actually seen it. Not until
February 2018 when I was writing up some documents on the first Mars
colonies and I was looking for some clips to illustrate the principles of
geodesic domes. My construction methodology for geodesic domes was already
complete. My geodesic designs were complete. My plans for my Mars base were
complete. I was ready to write it up so I searched for some examples to help
illustrate the idea. That is when I came across some clips on the Eden Project.
The Eden Project is extraordinary. Since 2018 I now use this in my documents
as the best example I can find of what I intend to build in these first
colonies on Mars.
If you get the Eden Project you are half way to understanding these first
colonies on Mars.

Now let us jump straight into our next
topic, which is bricks and mortar.
