Where should the first explorers stay on Mars? Will they live in their landing craft? Perhaps they will live underground? Maybe they will live in futuristic domes? What would be the most efficient way to live on Mars in the first years after Alpha Colony.

This article, by Jim Keener, combines elements of bioengineering and architecture into one of the most surprising theories Red Colony.com has seen. Domes, overviewed briefly in the Cities article, are a vital part to Alpha Colony and the settlements thereafter. However, certain features for safety must be implemented, including swinging plates and air packs. Jim has done it again, proving his complicated, futuristic ideas with hard scientific proof.
