    Humans love to explore. Strangely enough even horrible places - like Mars. Let’s see how building a Mars base could work and how insanely nerve-wracking exactly it would be.

Pretty wholesome how the narrator continuously states that there's "always lack of this and that" in terms of materials for mars, and then says, "that only a group of people determined and competent enough could colonize mars, luckilly we have plenty of them here."

You're blatantly wrong about the increased risk of cancer. The effect of radiation on a Martian colonist, assuming a stay of 2.5 years (the time it would take from arrival to the first available Hohman transfer window) only places a 0.905% additional risk of developing life-threatening cancer within 30 years of returning to Earth.

Not how evolution works. Evolution works by killing off the old version of a species and letting a new version due to a rare genetic mutation (that would just by chance be beneficial in the given enviroment) survive and reproduce with that mutation. If everyone on Mars survived to reproduce, it would still take thousands if not millions of years for their genes to evolve and allow them to survive. And that’s if they’re lucky.

Creating a cloud cities habitat over Venus is far more practical than colonizing Mars. Not that either are particularly practical. The surface for a planet should not be so important. A habitat on Mars or habitat around Venus would have to be built mostly from earth either way. And in neither plan could one venture very far from the habitat. Whether it is in the air or on the surface. What a Venus cloud city has going for it: The atmosphere around Venus provides more options than Mars air or atmosphere. The gravity for Venus is much more similar to earth than Mars. There would be far more solar power to exploit near Venus than Mars. And the distance from earth to Venus is closer than earth to Mars. All Mars has going for it apart from its popularity and a more habitable surface is a more similar day length to earth and 2 moons rather than none.
