Caption

Mars colony, computer artwork. The first bases on Mars are likely to resemble chemical plants. They will have sealed buildings to protect colonists from the thin atmosphere that is nearly all carbon dioxide, and the freezing surface temperature that ranges from -89 to -31 degrees Celsius. Inside the large domes, there are plants that will help recycle the carbon dioxide into oxygen, and also provide food. The tanks around the base will store oxygen, water, fuel and other chemicals. These may be manufactured from raw materials on Mars. Mars is a rocky, desert world, and has a gravity around a third of that of Earth.
