We start doing experiments on how to convert what little air is in the martian atmosphere into breathable air, put that system into a building and then build enough of those buildings to fit at least 1000-2000 people each (or as many as every country in this world). Getting there would be easy too. Build a lot of rocket ships and ride those the...

The definitions below are guidelines - I understand that in any debate, the boundaries between concepts are liable to shift.
