The big problems of settling on Mars are high radiation (worse than anywhere on Earth) and short period extreme radiation, moderate and extreme cold, need all basics of life and energy supply and I read its wiki and it says nothing about that. Do they say anything about solving these fundamental problems?

    "about three generations after the first colonists dug into the rock and soil" - So they dug down to avoid the radiation. This would also help deal with the heating issue; expanse.fandom.com/wiki/Mars – Valorum Oct 14 '19 at 6:50
  • Currently Martians all live under domes, and many necessary resources are shipped in from elsewhere, like from the belt. The first colonists probably lived in some sort of semi-temporary shelters while building the permanent domes, but that's just a guess. – Kai Oct 14 '19 at 19:54
  • How the current domes (assuming first domes were the same) solve the problems- seem pretty useless against radiation bursts and provide no energy solution? – user2617804 Oct 16 '19 at 23:03
