    Humans love to explore. Strangely enough even horrible places - like Mars. Let’s see how building a Mars base could work and how insanely nerve-wracking exactly it would be.

We should think about our planet. We have everything here. So imagine you come on Mars and then you need to make something for decades we actually have on Earth. What is the point. I know it is interesting challenge for humanity but HEY, lets make our planet unbeatable fortress.

As i mentioned in one video comment section... Maybe we should convince Elon Musk about a lot cheaper and faster colonization of the Moon, so we may sooner develop new technologies. Imagine 1000 times efficient thrusters lifting huge bulky transport ships, which can cary 100 tones in one take off. With that tech, colonizing Mars isn't big deal anymore and we can start thinking out of the box cough star system...

Using Moon as a hub for Mars missions is pointless. It will be far easier to do that directly from Earth. Getting out of the Earth's gravity's is half the effort no matter where you want to go. It's even possible to get to Mars with less fuel than to Moon thanks to aerobraking that is not possible on the Moon.

What about the radiation on the journey to Mars? How would you protect against that? And what do you think is more likely to happen first - a colony in Mars or in orbit? How feasible is terraforming Mars? (those are the questions I still have left. Else, great video!)

Your math about the nuclear fuel is wrong by at least an order of magnitude; reactors will last many decades, and never need refueling - same as submarines today.
