    A question that naturally follows Elon Musk’s recent pictures showing how SpaceX’s Red Dragon spacecraft would land on Mars would be, “What would life be like on Mars?”

    A recent infographic (below) from TED answers that exact question. Released in time for a talk from technology journalist Stephen Petranek, who wrote the book “How We’ll Live on Mars,” the graphic reveals the conditions the human race could expect to deal with if colonizing the red planet.

    For one, giving birth on Mars would be difficult considering the planet has a 95% carbon dioxide atmosphere that is lethal to human life — and would take over 1,000 years to properly oxygenate. Also, humanity would have to bring lots and lots of thick jackets — Mars’ equator can get as low as -100 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
