A Station for the Martian Geographic North Pole


Continuing in the long line of visionary BIS projects, Project Boreas summarises the three year deliberations of a group of BIS members and non-members on the design of a station for the Martian Geographic North Pole. The volume describes the base design, science and exploration objectives, communications, history of Mars polar studies, human factors studies, life support and many other factors neccesary for the explorers to spend nearly two Martian years at the Martian pole. The volume should be a valuable and unique document for anyone with an interest in Mars/planetary exploration and the challenges of building and operating extraterrestrial bases.
