This chapter briefly explores some of the major issues that migrants to Mars will have to face. The challenges there will range from physical to biological to psychological adjustment. Journey's into space typically change the perspectives of astronauts about many things, such as the antagonism between countries, the interconnected of places on Earth that we perceive from our perspective to be quite separate and, indeed, the unity of our entire planet. For many astronauts coming home with these insights and again interacting with people who lack them can be a trying experience.
