How do we do it?
What location would be the best one for a colony?
How do we protect ourselfs from the radiation?
How do we keep warm?
Do we need to go underground?
How can we sustain human life on surface?
How do we deal with 38% of Earth's gravity?

We can figure this out, /sci/, I know we can.

>How do we do it?
The better question is how much can we spend on it?
>How do we protect ourselfs from the radiation?
Lava tubes, we found some on Mars.

>How do we keep warm?
With heaters.
>Do we need to go underground?
See Lava tubes
>How can we sustain human life on surface?
We can't, unless we build domes. Terraforming is a meme.
>How do we deal with 38% of Earth's gravity?
Colonizing Mars is an unethical human experiment, I doubt 3rd generation Martians will look much like us Earthlings.

>How do we do it?
By spending a shitload of taxpayers' money
>What location would be the best one for a colony?
We currently don't know enough about mars to say that, but it should be any place where water is less difficult to extract.
>How do we protect ourselfs from the radiation?
by going underground. No other believable option.
>How do we keep warm?
Not that difficult actually. You need energy and insulation.
>Do we need to go underground?
yep
>How can we sustain human life on surface?
We don't. A pressurized cupola can use sun's light to grow crops, but humans shouldn't spend too much time there.
>How do we deal with 38% of Earth's gravity?
We probably don't. Meaning we could never be able to colonize mars.

I don't think 38% gravity is crisis-level low. You'd still have significant weight and resistance.

If you're that worried about it just make kids sleep in giant centrifuges while they're growing.

It's microgravity that fucks people up.

And you know this how?
Contrary to 0g, we don't have enough experimental data for low gravity.
If you need giant centrifuges: first you won't use their sleeping time, because the effect would be almost non-existent, and second at that point you may as well remain in space.
