I am all for research into aging and achieving biological immortality as
soon as possible. However, I see the primary problem, apart from the huge
technical hurdles that will have to be orvercome, as a potential
population explosion.
A possible solution to the population explosion would be migration into
space, beginning with the terraformation and inhabitation of Mars and
My question is short and simple: How much would it cost in US$ to
terraform Mars, and who would pay?
Is it technically and economically feasible for such projects to begin
before 2100, by which time I think immortality will be within reach?
