Where to go tourist on Mars?

Sooner or later, the Red planet will turn into another tourist attraction for the amusement of the earthlings.

— a planet of contrasts, consisting of numerous deep canyons, huge volcanoes and craters that once contained water. Surely soon the Red planet will become a wonderful place for future space tourists who will travel to this distant world right after Mars finally . Where did first go Martian tourists? Let's try to understand together.

Mount Olympus

As the portal , mount Olympus — the largest volcano in the Solar system. Located in the volcanic region Tharsis, it has the same size as Arizona, and its height is 25 kilometers away, making this extinct volcano is almost three times higher than earth's mount Everest. Despite the enormous size of the natural object, future researchers will be easy to climb the volcano though, because the average slope of Olympus is only 5 percent. Reaching the top of an ancient volcano, tourists can contemplate spectacular trench depth of about 85 kilometers, which was formed by one of the ancient Martian eruptions.

Rising to Olympus and looked around, you can see several other volcanoes in the region. According to NASA, the Tarsis is as much as 12 enormous height of the volcanoes, located in a total area of 4,000 kilometers. Like the Olympus, these volcanoes tend to be much above the earth because of low Martian gravity, which allows the volcanoes to grow higher and higher. Planetary scientists say that all of these volcanoes could erupt within two billion years, or nearly half the entire history of Mars.

Valley of the Mariner

Fortunately for prospective Martian tourists on Mars is not only the highest altitude of the Solar system, but also the largest canyon. According to NASA, it is approximately 3000 kilometers in length, which makes the canyon bigger than earth's Grand Canyon is almost 3 times.

Researchers are not sure as it emerged the Valley of the Mariner, but they have a couple of ideas on that. Some scientists suggest that the formation of the Tharsis region contributed to the growth of the valley of the Mariner through the lava, which was moving through the volcanic region and pushed the Martian crust up, making it crack. After millions of years, giant cracks grew into the largest canyon in the Solar system.

Gale Crater

Made famous by the landing of the Rover Curiosity in 2012, Gale crater contains extensive evidence of the large amount of water in the past. Traveling to the bottom of an ancient crater, the Rover came across a stream channel just a few weeks after its landing on Mars. One of the most interesting finds Curiosity in the region was the discovery of complex organic molecules near the Gale crater. . Simultaneously with the finding of organics, data from the Rover showed that the concentration of methane in the atmosphere of the red planet changing during the seasons. This unexpected discovery caused a sensation in the scientific world, showing the possible presence of microorganisms on Mars.

the Region of Medusae Fossae

Medusae Fossae — one of the most unusual places on Mars, presented in the form of a huge volcanic deposits, which make up about one-fifth the size of the United States. Over time, the winds turned the rock in some beautiful formations. A study of 2018 showed that the formation probably formed due to the extremely violent volcanic eruptions, some time agrawala Mars and making it warmer in the distant past.
