  • Human Beings could Live in Igloos on the Surface of the Red Planet

The latest speculation in scientific circles is that human beings could live in houses shaped like igloos on the surface of the Red Planet. National Geographic will air the show on 13th November at 9pm that will reveal the looks of man's first home on Mars.

The first time you look at it, it seems exactly like an igloo. However, as the designer knows, it is actually a prototype of a home on Mars meant for human beings. National Geographic presented the hypothetical idea in its miniseries on the Red Planet. This eskimo residence of sorts will eventually be set up in London via the employment of materials that are very close in their nature to the stuff found on Mars.

From the 10th to the 16th of November, this habitat will remain open for the public to view in all its glory and splendor. The question of how humans will live on Mars, where the temperatures will be pretty frigid, has finally been answered in a satisfactory manner.

The Cardiff company known as Wild Creations manufactured the igloo-like house from scratch and it took it several months to complete the dwelling place. The domed hemisphere is supposedly mined from Martian soil and has recycled spacecraft odds and ends as a part of its essential makeup.

A double air-locked entry way is also there. The whole home is meant to protect human beings from the freezing temperatures and harsh conditions of Mars.

Among the salient features of its exteriority are a transparent view of the Martian sky from above, a huge transmitter and wings for greater stability. The brickwork will be from minerals mined from the depths of Mars.

These will be microwaved in order to make them very durable and long-lasting. This residence will be situated in the Valles Marineris which is a system of canyons which run along the equator of Mars.

As for the walls of the igloo, they will be 10 feet in their thickness, according to DailyMail. The first Martian colony will consist of such homes. As for the entire city of human beings, it will be termed Olympus Town.

A sort of helter-skelter makeshift home will present itself to viewers in the interior habitat of this igloo. Barely the minimal essentials will be provided so that the human beings can survive in a manner where all they will need will be all they will be given.

There will no be room for luxuries. The design of this Martian igloo was inspired by the making of Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome. The goal for the installation of such igloos on Mars is 2033. Let’s hope this objective is met in accordance with the deadline.
