Professor Jean-Marc Salotti, of the National Polytechnic University of Bordeaux, said that life depends on access to natural resources and lower people's working time requirements.
The minimum population will be needed to help create tools and goods before the supply runs out. We will have to live in an oxygen-filled dome if we set foot on the Red Planet. New agriculture and industry will also have to be established, Professor Jean-Marc Salotti made this prediction after conducting many studies.
The minimum number of settlers has been calculated and the result is 110 individuals.
"What is the feasibility of surviving on another planet and being self-sustaining? This question is of particular importance to the future of space conquest and perhaps also to the future of humanity. Generally speaking.
I point out here that a mathematical model can be used to determine the minimum number of settlers and how to survive on another planet, using Mars as an example. It is based on a comparison of the time requirements to perform all types, human activities for the long-term survival and availability of settlers.
An important parameter of the model is called the sharing coefficient , which allows to reduce some time requirements for each individual. To survive on Mars, several assumptions are made for the organization of settlers and technical issues. The minimum number of settlers has been calculated and the result is 110 individuals, ' Professor Jean-Marc Salotti said.
Besides, Professor Jean-Marc Salotti said the settlers can produce enough goods and tools before the supply runs out.
He also suggested that support from the Earth could be cut off due to war, lack of resources, or the settlers declared an independent Martian republic.
Factors include the number of settlers, which living conditions are accepted, the main technical options for agriculture, industry and life support and how resources will be shared and organized.
Earlier, billionaire Elon Musk was pumping money into his SpaceX program in hopes of one day invading Mars. Recently, this billionaire has continued to send the first commercial rocket carrying astronauts to the international space station.
