Re: how would you build a colony?

If we could collect enough helium-3, known as "extraterrestrial helium," we could use fusion energy for our colonies. Rich sources in our solar system include the Moon and Jupiter's atmosphere.

There are probably many other sources out there, waiting for us to exploit them.
