Artificial Biosphere Module - a side-goal for players



The new base layout give's a large hollow square between the modules.

I propose that in the final stage of base developement players would be able to add a biosphere module which would be a nice side-goal for the players. Artificial biospheres are being build on Earth for scientific study. They are in a shape of a small pyramid. The creation of an artificial biosphere by the space-colony is the final stage of base evolution at which the players can reely call themselves a "colonists". The creation of biosphere module is extremely hard - not becouse we don't know how to do it, but becouse we can't send ton's of materials on Mars...every it's component needs to be extracted in-situ. And that's fun!

In order to create a biosphere, the colonists would first need to:
-Gather enough water (5 tons?)
-Create from scrath soil from martian regolith, using chemical refining proceses.
-Generate enough power for biosphere life support
-Create (2 tons?) of pleksiglas from which the pyramid will be builded
-Raise by yourselve some plants: trees, bushes and weeds and then plants them in the soil you made.

Fantastic high level stuff- real nice idea.. space trees and space weeding.. add insects,birds etc.


If I may,..
Use also large 'inner skin', has to be filled with a useable atmoshphere and kept under pressure.. dunno say 10 tonnes(M)

Actually, I would def smuggle up a packet of those seeds. The 'hemp' plant has many uses - some better than other  ;)

I can just imagine an astronaut zooming around on a high doing spins in space... Probably prank-calling mission control too...  ;D

ROFL!

With the 10 minute signal delay between mars he could prank them and hang up before they even pickup =p

As it may be expected, I LOVE this idea. Great for base morale too!
