1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data First variables deal with which to colonize a: mars easier to terraform *or so i've been told* or b: the moon close yet hard to stabilize; the main point of the assignment that i have trouble with is finding a new age propulsion system and a working systems of checks and balances that actualy allows a bio-dome to work undisturbed by all but its self. this presents a problem however. I must make communication lines from the base to earth and from one base site to another yet also must understand how are sound waves effected by gravity? What is the best new age engine or propulsion system that can get me and over 50 tons into the sky;and lastly how create a functioning lab to analyze and evaluate all the natural resources on the moon/planet. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution none, thus the reason of submiting for aid.
