Life on Mars (circa the amazing year One Billion!)

Via jaylake, science-fiction writer David D. Levine has just begun a two-week stint at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, which simulates life in a first-generation Mars habitat.

Inspired, I have decided to conduct my own two-week life-on-Mars simulation. Being an impatient guy, however, I have opted for a far-future, post-colonial Mars with a fully terraformed atmosphere, hot running water, weekly garbage pickup, and Netflix.

Wish me Godspeed!
