SURPRISE the page is really purple
Also someone asked about the radiation shielding, so I’ll mention it quickly here cuz it won’t be addressed in the comic: this hab has shielded walls, but also has sandbags under the roof which drastically cut down on the radiation coming in from above. Radiation from below is blocked by soil as well. Established future habs would probably be built from Martian-soil bricks, but this structure is relatively new, capable of being mobile, and is not necessarily going to be tied down to this location forever.
The layout and functionality of the modules in the comic are strongly based off of Robert Zubrin’s research on Martian habitation, as well as current research habs being tested around the world right now! If you have an interest, please check out his incredible book, The Case For Mars.
See you Thurs for some actual other characters!!
