DailyDirt: Simulations For Living On Mars

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Manned missions to Mars aren't going to happen for decades (if ever?), but in the mean time, we have awesome robots roaming the surface of Mars for us. We also have some simulations of living on Mars -- like the Mars500 project -- and the unforgettable original Total Recall movie. Here are just a few more Martian simulations if you need some help escaping from the realities of Earth. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Re: Re: Isolated living != Mars

    PolyPusher,

    Research stations in Antarctica have only certain times of the year when it's safe to travel, so there is a "no turning back" reality for some places on Earth -- although the time scales is on the order of waiting weeks/months, not years, for a rescue.

    I'm sure nuclear submarine crews also have to go through similar isolated living situations where there's "no turning back" as well... but there's still gravity to remind them they're on Earth.
