      I think we could. We’d have to make buildings which were air tight to protect us from the vacuum of space and so we could breathe.

      To me the question is would we want to colonize another planet? I can see it would be good temporarily to do science and use a base but living in a small building and never being able to walk outside without a spacesuit would get pretty annoying I reckon!
