Geologists recently presented a list of nine places that would help install the first humans on the Red Planet. If these three geologists preferred underground caves, it was to protect future astronauts from radiation and the large changes in temperature between day and night there. They have also chosen locations less than 100 kilometers from a potential landing site.

Presentation During the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.

They made no unexpected discoveries: their list comes from the “Catalog of Candidate Martian Caves” (Mars Global Vault Filter Catalog), a document published in 2017 and updated in 2021 by NASA and other partners, based on data collected from orbit by the Mars Odyssey and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). These spacecraft were able to discover the “entrances” – the largest are the size of a football field – and the various underground “cavities”. MRO in particular is equipped with a HiRISE HD camera (Experience the science of high-resolution imaging) are able to discern rocks no more than 1 meter wide – but have only identified 5% of the surface so far.

The “catalog” contains more than a thousand of these potential homes, so the team selected nine of them. All these caves It seems to be very wideBut observation from orbit has its limits. Get to know the three researchers: Real estate speculation must go up a notch in the day when the small helicopters, such as the one Experienced earlier this yearYou will take more pictures…
