It might seem a little silly to worry about home insurance on Mars now, but we’re startlingly close to settling the Red Planet. Organizations like Space X are starting to make concrete plans on just how to make our space-colonizing dreams come true. While housing on Mars sounds amazing to some, it won’t exactly be cheap. So, rebuilding your home or space dome or celestial biome every time there’s a galactic disaster may make some space explorers second-guess relocating…if they don’t have the right coverage. But what is the proper insurance coverage for a home on Mars? Here are some of our ideas.
A lot of people who travel are looking for alternatives to hotels, which is how Airbnb took off into a thriving business.

Okay, so we’re getting pretty pumped about the premiere of the new Avengers movie, Endgame. The last Avengers movie, Infinity Wars, left off at such a cliff-hanger that we’ve been tapping our feet in impatience ever since. Anyways, we greatly enjoy the superhero antics (and squabbling) in the movies, but we noticed that there’s a lot of destruction that goes on – collateral damage if you will. We can’t help but wonder what would happen if we lived in the Avengers universe with the gaggle of superheroes – and supervillains – running around. More specifically, we’re wondering how much insurance the average person should carry if they shared a city with these guys. In case you forgot, New York City gets pretty trashed.

So, here’s a great hypothetical for you: what happens if a meteor hits your house? What about an asteroid? Or what about a satellite that makes the life-changing decision that its true fate is no longer to be in space but to crash-land down to earth? Because, you know, stuff that’s meant to be in space (asteroids, meteors, and satellites, for example) don’t always stay in space. Sometimes they decide to, you know, relocate to earth. On top of your house. Because clearly, that’s a great place for it to be. Anyways – back to the question at hand: does home insurance cover a meteor, asteroid, or satellite if it crashes through your roof? Let’s explore that.

Okay, okay, we get it: insurance might not be your favorite thing in the world to think about. And it’s probably not your favorite thing to read about either.
