Poll: Where Should Humans Build the 1st Space Colony?
By Tariq Malik, Space.com Managing Editor |
Where should the first permanent space colony be built?
The Moon - It's our nearest neighbor after all.
Mars - The Red Planet should be the next giant leap.
Deep Space - Orbiting outposts are the only way to go.
Asteroid Waystation - We should hitch a ride on a space rock.
