  1. Nice but I don't think that domes are going to be the way to go on Mars. The pressure difference between inside and outside is too great - the dome would have to be really, really strong - and what if one panel at the top develops a leak? How to fix it quickly or seal off a section? - you can't. More likely, farms will be in low compartmentalized rooms, each room having a pressure door that can close in an emergency.

    1. That large window in SpaceX's Starship design will have to withstand much more stress than any dome on Mars ;)

    2. Good point. Although they have not come out with a final design yet. We'll have to wait to see what they actually come up with. I can' wait - very exciting.
