Mars secret is not life. It's energy


In fact percholate...

I just did a napkin guestimation, It would seem this reduces the cost of a permanent settlement significantly. I mean, your talking about cutting the cost for oxygen creation and food down to nearly nothing. after the initial setup mission each shuttle need only bring enough oxygen and water for the trip. Infact over a few years, you could be exporting food back to earth. The cost of getting it back would be drastically reduced as well. In fact, its been shown that we could build an orbital elevator on mars with todays technology, let alone the possibility of creating rocket fuel...

As near as i can tell it, this at least halves the initial start-up cost of a mars colony. Not only that.. but it reduces the time before self sufficiency by a factor of at least ten.

This discovery (once fully confirmed) fully justifies immediate and extensive investment in Mars colonisation. Whoever gets there first will make themselves the richest party on both planets within 50 years.

NASA Spacecraft Analyzing Martian Soil Data
 
 
WASHINGTON -- Scientists are analyzing results from soil samples delivered several weeks ago to science instruments on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander to understand the landing site's soil chemistry and mineralogy.

Within the last month, two samples have been analyzed by the Wet Chemistry Lab of the spacecraft's Microscopy, Electrochemistry, and Conductivity Analyzer, or MECA, suggesting one of the soil constituents may be perchlorate, a highly oxidizing substance. The Phoenix team has been waiting for complementary results from the Thermal and Evolved-Gas Analyzer, or TEGA, which also is capable of detecting perchlorate. TEGA is a series of ovens and analyzers that "sniff" vapors released from substances in a sample.

NASA will hold a media teleconference on Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 2 p.m. EDT, to discuss these recent science activities. Participants will be introduced at the start of the briefing. To participate in the teleconference, reporters should contact Steve Cole on 202-358-0918 for dial-in and passcode information.
