Ice? Fine, but can you get a decent martini?

I think Mars is a lot colder. I recall seesing a graph that showed the temp range was from -90 to -10 C.

Glad to see you're all taking this massive discovery with the seriousness it deserves! Ah well, it is Friday evening.

The other aspect of Mars' wheather is that Mars atmosphere is very thin. So, at the surface level, the temperature may be as high as +50F, while only three feet high from the surface it will be below the freezing point.

no atmosphere and no martini - can't see it catching on as a holiday destination.

Im sure there was an article I read the other week where at one point the environment around the Spirit rover was actually a tad warmer than what it was in the New England area at the time.
Although admittedly it was daytime over the rover at the time, I think Mars won out with -90C temps at night time.
Dont think it would put off the Packers fans from going to a game there though

If the teams showed up, the fans would too
BTW, I went to a game against the Raiders when it was -8F at kickoff. It was no big deal though, their was little wind unlike the Ice Bowl. The Pack won of course 28-3.
 
If you send is by car it's a shipment, but if by ship it's cargo. This tiny ad told me:
