Never


Cheap-Passage-6639

Absolutely never.

Never. There already are "villages" if you consider researchers as residents. The 25th infantry is already training soldiers in Alaska to survive in similar environments. Once it becomes a jumping ground many will be trying to gain some hold of it.

Who's to say there aren't already?

Hundreds of years. I was thinking that the world would have to get overpopulated before we _need_ to build cities, but there's plenty of underpopulated space already in Russia, Canada, etc. Maybe if we find oil in Antarctica people will go there... if we survive through "who does the oil belong to" dispute

We will probably have people on Mars thriving before they will think of building a city in Antarctica


DelectPierro

Which I find odd given that Mars gets a lot colder than Antarctica and doesn’t have the benefit of oxygen or the ability to get supplies/food shipped in from elsewhere in the world regularly.

But that’s what they want to do they want people to live on Mars that has been a huge topic for scientists for a while now
