The Martian Base (1951)

This painting by Leslie Carr, based on a drawing by R.A. Smith, appears in the 1951 book The Exploration of Space by Arthur C. Clarke. Eighteen years before Man would set foot on the moon, the image depicts a Martian colony of the future, similar to those which would show up later in the 1957 Disneyland TV episode, Mars and Beyond.

I love how this future Mars colony looks just like a typical city of the early 1950s with a dome.

And it seems that we will be making our own "canals" by then.

this will be excellent, however is a so far away dream, the atmosphere of this planet is filled with bacteries and virus, the only way to survive to this is that astronauts don't forget their Kamagra, beside we need to bomb with radiation

For many thousands of years there has been the question, if we are alone in the universe. I think that there is enough evidence to probe that in fact even before our recorded history intelligent beings walked in this earth, many evidence show artifacts going back millions of years BC.
