      Potentially yes, if we can get a water supply, and the right breathing support…. but I think it’ll have a big impact psychologically, especially the time it takes to travel there. A recent study has looked at the impact of space travel on our brains – it’s a fascinating area of research – maybe something you could look at when you’re a scientist!

      It can be one day. However it will be quite difficult to arrange and technology has not developed enough yet 🙂

      Yes, I can see it happening in the future.
