Abstract

Within the framework of the Mars City State Contest 2020 of The Mars Society, from Colombia, with an interdisciplinary and academic perspective, it was sought to give a perspective of solutions and answers to the challenges of possible human life on Mars. Thus, the document initially addresses a forward-looking prologue, an introduction to the concept of the proposed state, taking as a starting point the concept of the Martian dichotomy. Subsequently, each of the concepts required for human subsistence on Mars is addressed, including Design, geology and natural resources, technical support (food, energy, transportation, manufacturing, data), health and life support, and social aspects (political principles, economy, education). This document is one of the multiple perspectives to inhabit the red planet.
