      Hi Ssuch!

      If it ended right now we wouldn’t be able to. However as technology advances and we learn more through research the possibility is becoming increasingly likely!

      Concordia (my Antarctic Station) is often referred to as ‘White Mars’ as the conditions here are similar to those found on Mars. I like it here so perhaps I would like moving to Mars too! Let’s hope that we can go to explore rather than because the world has ended though 😉
