Hmm. Interesting stuff... Do you have any good ideas, small or big?

FYI: 'Radiation Protection', https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_protection is a good starting point for basic research/development.

Good luck! Bon Voyage! :-)

Interesting article, and on a topic that fascinates me. I really hope we land a human on Mars in my lifetime. I think space exploration, in general, is very important.

How to protect humans once they are on Mars?
As the article states, bringing everything with them would make the spaceship too large and the mission prohibitively expensive. I think humans will have to make do with what is already there. Perhaps bring some brick molds and make bricks from martian materials. The Eskimos build igloos out of snow, perhaps humans on Mars could build igloos out of Martian soil. All they'd need to do is mine some water, also from the Martian environment, as well as what ever else they'd need. It would be a very crude beginning, but enough to establish a base, and the next generation of colonists/explorers could build on that. Early human civilizations built their habitats from bricks. We'd be going backwards a bit--but at least we'd be there. We can NOT wait until everything is just perfect and we can bring fully furnished homes with us (water, insulation, watermelons, Grey Poupon mustard, bidet, etc.) If so, we'll be waiting forever, and the excuses not to go will always prevent us from doing it.

Humans must adapt to outer space or adapt the appropriate environments of outer space for the benefit of humans there... How?

Think or ponder the idea of the human bubble which extends and expands human life and its possibilities. What is that human bubble? It could be artificial gravity, life-support systems, AI, etc. Think big and think very small too and go small/big appropriately for the benefit of humanity and for the benefit of life-sustaining/friendly environments...

Please see attached file. We hope it helps us to solve critical problems on and beyond Earth...

FYI: Maybe one in four stars may have Earth-like planets orbiting them...

Note: There could be alien life below the surface of many more planets and moons throughout our galaxy and beyond... There may also be a more advanced human civilization living several miles below the surface of our Earth... Go figure!
