Since persistence inspires the whole world about the thrill of visiting our closest solar neighbor, Mars, it is easy to worry about what it will be like when people regularly hit the red in the future Planets live

Between SpaceX and NASA, it makes sense that humans will live on Mars before the end of the century. The question is, when will they do it, what will the first Martian cities look like?

Science fiction should never be used as an actual prediction of human culture, but it’s a lot of fun to think about how science fiction stories envisioned our future life on Mars. Here are six of the very best very best Martian cities, sorted out for viability, but for pure science fiction coolness

In Kim Stanely Robinson’s seminal SF books on the colonization of Mars, there are several fictional cities – Red Mars, Green Mars, and Blue Mars – so picking just one is difficult if, however, you only need to choose one Martian metropolis from his books , Bradbury City is the way to go

Robinson’s Bradbury City is named after Ray Bradbury, who wrote The Martian Chronicles Set to recreate a city in Illinois Bradbury was born in Waukegan, Illinois. The Mars Chronicles contain several unlikely Mars cities, some made by humans and others made by Martians. But in almost all cases, as in “Night Meeting”, have these cities often have gas stations and pickups

Not exactly a city in itself, but certainly a great Martian settlement in the pantheon of science fiction – if only for its name

In the one-time “Who of Mars” Do Doctor Who from the time of David Tennant from 2009, the Doctor fights against a kind of sentient alien water called “The Flood”, which turns people into water zombies Bowie Base One in the Who -Canon is the first human colony on Mars that leads to many, many others. Obviously, it is named after David Bowie and the song “Life on Mars” “

In the Trek era of the 24th In the early 20th century, most of Starfleet’s best ships are built at the Utopia Planitia Shipyards in orbit around Mars. The Trek franchise rarely visited Mars, although the final episodes of Enterprise Season 4 – “Terra Prime” and “Demons” – were on the surface of Mars had a lot of action

Both Star Trek: Picard and its predecessor “Children of Mars” showed that the shipyards were not only in orbit of Mars, but also on the ground, which meant that a huge civilization population previously lived on Mars and worked for the Sythn uprising in 2285

More than any other contemporary science fiction series, The Expanse – both the books and the TV series – has made a compelling projection of what a future Mars colony might look like

The capital city of Londres Nova is sometimes referred to as “New London” “In the reality of The Expanse, the colonization of Mars is so interesting that it will ultimately become completely independent of Earth to the point where its government is in Basically in direct competition with Earth for the resources of the entire solar system in the future span of The Expanse, Mars is basically an alien planet populated by humans

Something unique in science fiction, Babylon 5 started with a main character who was born on Mars, Commander Jeffery Sinclair in B5, it’s not weird to come from Mars, but Mars politics is an integral part the entire story of the series

Mars Dome One is the largest city there, and yes, it’s a huge dome.But Mars Dome One and other cities in Babylon 5 are fascinating because, unlike Earth, there is more of an underworld on Mars, including a U -Brain for rogue telepaths

The Martian city visited by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Quaid is by far the most memorable Martian city in science fiction, even if it doesn’t make much sense

In the Philip K Dick’s short story, Total Recall is based on, “We can remember this for your wholesale,” the main character never goes to Mars, at least not in real-time of the story Chryse’s triumph in Total Recall is the edgy naturalism of this future city it’s shabby , dirty and dangerous

In Blade Runner you’re told that humans have emigrated to a host of other planets, Chryse in Total Recall is like the Martian city equivalent of Los Angeles in Blade Runner you can basically imagine they exist in the same common universe as author Philip K Agree dick? Maybe!
