    I like keeping an eye on the mars missions and upcoming projects. It's always been a fascination of mine, anything related to colonizing other worlds. I recall reading a great series about mars by Kim Stanley Robinson when I was younger — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_trilogy.

    So now an agreement is in place to build a village, based around how a village would be on Mars, in the Tibet Plateau, specifically the Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan autonomous Prefecture.

    It has a desert that occupies three fourths of the entire province, which is north west of China, and which has been established for thousands of years based on erosion and wind. It's therefore very similar to the conditions of Mars.

    There's going to be a Mars community and camp. It will not only help plan missions to Mars, but is meant to boost tourism in the area.

    Last year NASA finished a year-long survival mission in a mock Mars colony, in Hawaii. A similar experiment in the USA — the Utah desert — lasted 80 days.

    Russia also hosted an isolation experiment called “Mars 500” that lasted more than 500 days. That length of time was required based on how long it took a spaceship to fly from Earth to Mars.

    Humans are likely already on Mars based on the secret space programs using alien technology, but still, all this is fascinating stuff what they get up to.

    BTW, I think the Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs was my first set of sci fi books.
    I also enjoyed Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars series... much more updated, lol!
