Problems of Mars

This page will deal with some of the key issues of social development facing the colonists on Mars. What sort of society could Mars be? What will be the possibilities and restraints.

Among issues to be discussed -

Should there be a global government on Mars? If so, how should it relate to Mars.

Should it be administered by the  UN or by whoever lands there first?

How should Mars's calendar be organised?  We have a different name for the Mars day - the sol - but what should we call the seasons and the months?
