God willing I will be giving a presentation on making the desert blossom as the rose and Mars settlement, tomorrow, August 14th, at 4:30 PM at the Mars Society conference. I would love to hear from any of you who might be attending.

    Cool. Does the discovery of perchlorate change anything in terms of human settlement in your view? I mean we haven’t exactly made the Atacama Desert blossom as a rose.

    Probably not.

    I wish I could be there. Will there be transcripts available?

    That depends on how well I do.

    Adam -

    That’s cool. You just became one of my geek idols.

    Except, juxtaposing Mars & Rose always makes me think of that depressing (but good) science fiction short story about Mars “A Rose for Ecclesiastes.”

    Wow that’s great! I want to live there. =)

    Call me a contrarian, I think Venus has better long term prospects than Mars does… if we could just guide a few comets into its atmosphere.

    Regardless, even if it is impractical, thinking about terraforming planets is really thinking about the Creation. And that is exciting.

    I would be nice to hear a report when you’re back from the conference.
