Earthling architecture firm Foster + Partners just unveiled plans for a NASA Mars settlement that would involving parachuting three different kinds of robots to the red planet's surface so that they could use Mars soil to autonomously 3D print buildings.

Also, scientists just discovered liquid water on Mars.

The convergence of these two unveilings seems to suggest something, and that something is this: time to move to Mars and eat weird bacteria and party with Buzz Aldrin and make our dad angry. Let's do it.
