Mars habitat near mesa

A manned habitat rests on the rocky and desolate surface of Mars. In the background is a mesa and on the right a manned rover.

Compared to the waterless vacuum of the Earth's Moon, Mars is a Garden of Eden complete with atmosphere and (possibly) readily-available water, nevertheless it is still a very inhospitable wilderness, an environment itself so harsh as to make the Earth's Antarctica in winter seem a paradise by comparison.
