I am doing some research into the nearby rocky bodies Mars, Venus and the Moon with reference to human colonisation.
Are there any specific pieces of information that would be useful to know about the planets? So far, I have most of what I need:
- Atmospheric Constitution
- Atmospheric Pressure
- Day and Year length
- Proximity to Earth at certain times
- Surface composition (Soil)
- Major landforms
- Bodies from space hitting it
- Surface area
- Solar radiation/wind.
Extreme detail is important, so are there any other's I've left out?
note: I am not looking at whether it is possible to colonise these planets right now. That is irrelevant. I just am asking is there any further information I should know if we could theoretically colonise them. I know for places like Venus, it is virtually impossible, but I would appreciate knowing any information that, if it was possible, would be useful.
