The property, called Granot Loma, is twenty-six thousand square feet, and it belongs to Tom Baldwin, a sixty-five-year-old former bond and commodities trader. Baldwin made his fortune in the Treasury-bond pit at the Chicago Board of Trade, where his colleagues referred to him as the King.

Space, SpaceX, starship -

ย  ย  ย  Hours after SpaceX outfitted the first orbital Starship prototype with all six of its Raptor engines, the company has installed the vehicleโ€™s nose section, effectively completing its basic structure. At the same time as teams are now working around the clock to weld Starship S20โ€™s nose and tank sections together, SpaceX attached the first orbital-class Super Heavy โ€“ Booster 4 (B4) โ€“ to a massive crane that lives at the launch pad. Around 3pm CDT (UTC-5), after allowing a minor storm to pass through the area, Super Heavy B4 lifted free from its transport stand, raised 30-40...

But for an endeavor as unprecedented as colonizing another planet, you have to dream bigโ€”and plan ahead. Thatโ€™s what an international team of scientists and other experts are doing, and theyโ€™ve come up with not just a design, but a full-fledged plan to build the first Martian city, complete with sustainable housing, food, transportation, and energy.
