Re: The Mars Academy

There is no doubt in my mind that rich educational institutions and individuals would be willing to pay millions of dollars to have people study on Mars.

So I think an early goal for the colony would be to establish a "Mars Academy", a small educational and research institution. Two obvious disciplines would be geology and astronomy. But there might well be interest in studying the psychology of the colonisation process.

It might be the right time to do so when the colony is able to start building small domes.

Re: The Mars Academy

Oh no, you've just reminded me that we'll need teachers on Mars once people start to raise children there.
