With special thanks to the TripBase Travel web site, we give you...
The punchline, of course, is that when nerds look at vacation destinations in even the most brutal conditions, we have a different reaction than normal humans.
We don't look at a desert, ice cavern or crater and rule it out because bikini-clad bimbos on roller-blades couldn't get banana lime rum cocktails to our beach lounge chairs fast enough.
We think, Wow, that would be a great spot for a Mars Analog project.
Okay, okay so there may be bubonic plague ridden rodentia meandering about, or say, radioactive waste... and you know, maybe a lava flow here and there... but if nothing else, geeks love a challenge.
We can build suits for that. We can find habitats that allow us to survive in just about anything. Inhospitable environment? BRING IT. And then we can use that data for a potential moon base.
Don't believe me? Check out the real thing... and sign up for one!
