“4 Signs We Could Live Somewhere Else in the Solar System”, but not really 4 different places

4 Signs We Could Live Somewhere Else in the Solar System”, from Unveiled, May 19, 2021.

The video (8 min) actually names only two existing planets to live on:  Mars, and Titan. . It shows a subglacial lake on Mars (simulated) known to exist.  

There are ideas (Musk) of nuking Mars to start a runaway greenhouse effect, and using mirrors somehow to warm Titan.  There is also discussion of space habitats (essentially multiple O’Neill cylinders).   It also says we have “bided our time” on returning to the Moon.

The video warns us about the Sun’s gradual warming (whatever the debate on climate change now), making Earth uninhabitable in a few hundred million years (it will take about 5 billion to become a red giant). It also talks about asteroids and big solar storms, and warns us about our near miss with another Carrington event in July 2012.
