Radiation-proof tent for camping on Mars

Posted on Jun 4 2011 - 6:56pm by Brian K.

Want to take the family some place that’s nice and quiet with open scenery for miles and miles? Then Mars may be the place for you.

It’s hard to imagine, but someday, we may be going camping on Mars. Though that’s not actually going to happen anytime soon, a team of aerospace and textile engineering students from North Carolina State University are working on a Mars-friendly tent for astronauts to stay in when they visit the fourth planet from the Sun.

    I am the first soul to think about camping on Mars. I would love to use my ALPS Mountaineering Taurus Outfitter tent.
