Colonization of Mars is always trending topic for all space lovers. If colonization of other planet is successful, humans would be a multi-planet species. Elon Musk outlined SpaceX’s plan to Mars-colonization vision. The absence of the magnetic field is the main problem for human life on Mars. probably life will be possible after 100 years in red planet. But what if humans born on Mars?
below discussed points are just general imagination on humans as an interplanetary species. However, we need to find the crack of the problems of water and oxygen on another planet. Afterward, that body transformation and our life cycle affected. let’s discussing few points on “What if, humans born on Mars?”
The body structure of all homo sapiens is similar in Earth. The thermodynamic stability, atmosphere ‘s pressure, body parts, and all forces are balanced in this structure. Since the early age to present age human body undergoes too many changes. let’s take an example of human’s height. Earlier our average height is smaller and now evolve to larger average height.
The first generation which travels from Earth to Mars that not face too much transformation. But afterward, the first generation of mankind, human body start transforming slowly. Because each body has different functions and they developed for Earth’s atmosphere. The functions of body parts change in Mars.
2. Body transformation
Let’s assume we have a chemical reaction source of oxygen in Mars, in that case, body parts such as heart not need that much effort to transfer blood. because the atmospheric pressure and gravity are far lesser than Earth.
The bones which are needed for a variety of functions within the body are not that much stronger if we born on Mars. The distance from the Sun to Mars is greater than the distance from Sun to Earth. that’s why the availability of Vitamin D is lesser than Earth. this may be one of the reasons for the not that much stronger body.
Our earth is a colorful planet. Our eyes are developed to see all colors. But Martian environment is loaded from excess reddish brown thus causes human eyes transformed for a specific environment.
Transformation of the human body into lesser water requirement species. And because of radiation, dusty tides, and CO2 excess atmosphere, our outer skins transformed. Humans would be a long height species. (Mars has no magnetic field that’s cause the life is not possible on Mars)
The atmospheric pressure at the Mars atmosphere is very-very low compare to earth’s atmospheric pressure. The surface pressure is 600 pascals on Mars. Because of this factor no need to wear high pressure to the upper body part. this two are the major points which are responsible for experiencing low weight on Mars.
- Bones on Mars become weaker and weaker that’s cause decrease in weight.
- Gravity is less and pressure is low.
Mars gravity is 38/100 of Earth. because of gravity factor humans on Mars transformed into taller species. Normally an adult human can jump up to 3 feet on Earth’s surface. but gravity on Mars is 3/8 of Earth’s gravity. Means human can jump higher on Mars. A human can move at higher speed and able to long jump (like a superhero).
The image of Jupiter is not enough to show the massiveness of the planet. The gravity of Jupiter could be helpful for the protection of life on Mars (Jupiter attract many space particles).
The soil of Earth and Mars is quite similar. K, Na, Cl, and Magnesium founded on Mars soil. Mars has large mountains which affect the atmosphere. The PH of the Martian soils is 7-8. Present nutrients are helpful for agriculture conditions except for main problems like Rainfall (less water environment), the absence of magnetic field.
- Magnesium present on Mars, and it is an essential nutrient for the plant. it has a major role in the photosynthesis process.
- Sodium present on Mars soil. Sodium is also important for growing plant.
- Potassium is present in the Martian soil. Potassium is necessary for the growth of a plant.
6. Water and oxygen
Many theories proposed that the ancient Mars environment contains lots of water. But sudden absence of magnetic field destroys the environment and convert into red planet. Information collected by satellites shows the presence of water on north and south poles. Water is present in the solid state.
The absence of hydrogen on atmosphere and lack of oxygen (only 0.1%) are the factors which make human life impossible on Mars. Without Solving the water and oxygen problems. Human life is never imaginable.
In past, few years the interplanetary missions or space missions undergo many changes. Now rockets are reused after launching (SpaceX). Private and government space agencies are working on the human mission on Mars. Up here some companies are planning to the colonization of Mars. When companies show their intention about the colonization of Mars they show the images of the house. In some design, the houses are interconnected. However, there are many design aspects. Here are few requirements for Martian house.
- Anti-UV radiation.
- The source of oxygen.
- Dust emission arrangement.
- Able to protect from dusty tides.
If you are one of them who is seeing in the sky from Mars at night. You see two tiny moons. Phobos and Deimos are two tiny non-spherical moons and looks like any asteroids. These moons are very hard to observe from Earth. the Earth may look brighter from Martian sky due to the greater radius.
9. Book suggestion
A well-researched novel on the colonization of Mars. People’s want to read Martian books because we are not there. in past, two to three years peoples are more talking about colonization. The novel Red Mars is the first book of Mars trilogy series. Red Mars starts in 2026 with the largest interplanetary spacecraft ever built and home to a crew who are to be the first hundred Martian colonists.

Mainly Mars has four season summer, spring, autumn, and winter. season’s length is unpredictable. and we do not see the rainy season.
The colonization possible in Mars if we make a large architecture to protection from sun’s radiation. And developed a small area according to human requirements. It may require many space rockets and huge passenger space-crafts.This article is just on possibilities, living on Mars without a magnetic pole on Mars is not possible.
