Caption: Mars base. Artwork of a manned base near one of the Martian polar regions. Spacesuited figures are waving farewell to an expedition that is setting out to cross the nearby Martian Pole. The explorers are using tracked vehicles and sleds to cross the snow and ice. The majority of the ice of the Martian polar regions is 'dry' ice (frozen carbon dioxide) that freezes out in the intense cold of the Martian winters. During the Martian summers this layer retreats, revealing a layer of frozen water. This would be an important resource for Martian colonists.
