Will the first human habitat on Mars be on the surface?
closes 2100

"Human habitat" being a stationary place where at least 1 human lives for at least 1 (Earth) month.

Inspired by #7 here.

I assume this excludes orbit?

@LivInTheLookingGlass Correct. Fails the "stationary" criterion, and also the "on Mars" one. :)

I would allow one floating in the atmosphere though, if such a thing is possible.

(That would resolve this to NO, since it's not on the surface.)

Would you allow one on Phobos or Deimos?

IsaacKing avatar

No, that's not "on Mars" either.

Interesting question though.

@IsaacKing Do any of the Lagrange Points qualify?

@MichaelWheatley No, but points for creativity.
