Elon Musk chose the site of the first inhabited station on Mars

Elon Musk chose the site of the first inhabited station on Mars.

The American owner of the private space company "Space Ex" Elon Musk pointed out the northern regions of Mars as the most suitable place for the construction of the first habitable station on the Red Planet, TASS reported.

The agency quoted the businessman as saying during a video conference of the Martian Society. "The northern latitudes would probably be best", Musk said. "People would like to settle near areas where there is ice". It can be used to produce oxygen and energy. In addition, in these locations, it would be easier to land those aircraft that would use the Martian atmosphere to slow down the flight".

The first tasks of manned expeditions to Mars should be the preparation of fuel for rockets and the creation of communication systems. "Ice production will also need to be monitored to produce a breathable atmosphere and fuel", Musk said.

According to him, powerful lasers in orbit can be used to make a connection with the Earth.
