That sounds suspiciously illegal in most places, and very similar to a post that might bring the wrath of the great one down upon us all.

But is it illegal on Mars? Probably not, but it would likely ruin any chances we have at opening the colony up to tourism.

As for the test tube baby thing NO MORE. I vote for the Caveman approach again and because my post with the detailed and brilliantly laid out plan just puffed out of existence..


In all seriousness, though. I am deeply offended that you would forsake our future test tube children before they even have the opportunity to come into existence. That's the sort of stuff that will have them rebelling against us before we can even send off our first batch of them to explore other planets. Along with possibly give them some pretty bad daddy issues. Is that what you want, Urist?
I suppose that DZA was someone else then. No one, especially not me, who has contributed to this thread can claim ethics. God forbid some here runs for office and gets linked to this thread. 

And thats brilliant rider. We can, instead of putting them in the matrix, put them all into DF! Those who in the world show exceptional skill will be released as converts.

HFS? We're way worse then those push overs.

I see nothing unethical about any of that whatsoever. I was simply stating the fact that Mars is currently devoid of any formal laws. And that certain actions, though not specifically illegal on Mars, would damage possible tourism opportunities.

In the other part of my post, all I did was valiantly oppose the mental scarring that our future test-tube-created descendants might suffer from being forsaken by their creators.

I support this colonization effort, but I am guilty of no unethical behavior. For I am immaculately righteous by nature.

As for the moon plan and such, the low gravity is not a problem unless we plan on returning. Certainly, since we can merge animal and such cells, we can certainly modify the relevant to stimulate bone and muscle growth and such. (Also, since the moon's gravity is so much lower, it takes away some Earthly problems, like height restrictions, or not being able to strip on wings and fly*.)

Pfft, we play Dwarf Fortress, giving the moon an atmosphere is nothing for us!

I seem to recall a tv show once where some dude hung some wires from a bridge, and went underneath the bridge with some homemade wings, and had buddies up above had a system that had the wires simulate lower gravity to the guy below who had plenty of room to move about.

If I recall he got airborne pretty easily under moon gravity, and also got airborne on mars gravity.  So we would totally have a new extreme sport.

Can I make them please? Also, none of us have asked the dwarfy questions.
1. What rocks and ores will we have, and how much?
2. Who shall be actively doing the nessesary work, like farming?
3. Do we really need to war with Earth? They might have materials we don't have access to and the way we are going about this, there won't be any Earth left once we are done.
4. What about the members of our society that have non-dwarvish traits, like an aversion to alcohol, claustrophobia, or commom sense?
5. What will go on the acceptable mandates list?
There are other important questions to think about besides +pitchblende rock pot+ babies.

Maybe a isolated asteroid base called the BRAIN Institute?

Better yet, the celestial body should be composed of brain tissue, encased in reinforced concrete (with, of course, the mandatory support structures). The entire 'asteroid' would be capable of thought. Then we just hook the expendable components in via surface facilities.

I know XKCD had a comic like that. Ended when Black Hat Guy aimed a high-powered light at the guy's wings to melt the hot glue. If we can take anything from that, I think it should be that we should ensure any such equipment we construct should have heat-resistant adhesives.

1- Probably: copper, chromium, iron, nickel, lead, silver, tin, bismuth, antimony, niobium, lanthanum, neodymium, europium, gold, mercury, zinc, tungsten etc. No signs of adamantine yet.
But surely: Magnesium, Aluminium, Titanium, Iron, Chromium, lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, niobium, molybdenum, lanthanum, europium, tungsten, and gold.

Good news- A shit ton of our favorite ore: Hematite!. Also gold for DZA's pants.

2- Clones that have been genetically optimised for their particular labor. And the guy who keeps saying that Mars needs a carpenter.

3- No fun weaponizing everything if you got noone to use it on. Could use clones here but that's just cruel.

4-How tha fck would they get into the b12-society in the first place if they got anything resembling "common sense"!? If you're not a drinker...well, we've already suggested that'd we'd bring "hemp" along. The claustrophobic guys can hang out in the legendary dining room...always.

5-Let the sky be the limit.

Man, I'm good at this shit. If could run this project m'self :3

Low gravity sports. I don't know, watching sports isn't doing work, so the efficiency might drop.

But if we make it fight-to-the-death-style low gravity sports for criminals/attempted escapes, then I could totally see it. And hey, free souls for the energy converter.
