Salvo,
Here is the principle - as I find - quite well explained: How to See 3D





Don't forget to look here.

Why would you choose your base camp / landing site to be in Valles Marineris? tongue


It's so deep that the atmosphere is appreciably thicker down there. Gives you more aerobraking margin and makes things like liquid water a little easier to handle in ambient pressure (not much, though).

DoctorOfSpace, these will be ... very much pressing questions.
They will need to know that to split the profit in a manner respectable to ... all arguing sides.

Hopefully we never get to a point of sentient cars.

True, it does get down to about -5000m elevation there. SpaceX suggests a site must be below about -3000m for optimal entry and landing. But Valles Marineris is also a fairly confined area, and most of it is incredibly rugged. Not a really good place to try to land or set up a base to explore from. You can find larger and deeper places with better terrain for safer prospects for landing. If deepness and safety alone were important, then Hellas would be a better choice, such as around Telas crater (-6500m) and Badwater (-7500m).

Another factor is that both Valles Marineris and Hellas are fairly dry according to orbital surveys. That's not necessarily a deal breaker since it could be possible to extract some water out of the atmosphere, but a better option may be to set up base in a region with proven high water abundance and near-surface ice. This would suggest sites in the northern plains (which are also fairly low, anywhere from -3500 to -5000 meters).

Just being alive at the time I am alive really, what else is there to be more thankful for. You get a brief blip of existence before you go back to being nothing, at least its at a time with the internet.

Just realized, I asked the question, but never gave my answer. I am thankful for this awesome community where it could be considered that we are all friends and support each other (and with people from many different parts of the world). There aren't many communities like that. biggrin
