Robots to Be Intrumental On Mars


Peter Wordon, NASA Ames Research Center Director, said in a recent article of H+ magazine that that robots will play a key factor on Mars in the future. They will be necessary for both converting carbon dioxide to oxygen and surveying underground life forms.

"If we really want to settle Mars, and we don't want to have to carry millions of tons of equipment with us to duplicate the way we live on Earth, these technologies will be key."

We think Director Worden has some lofty plans and since water and carbon have already been discovered there, perhaps there really would be a Martian or two waiting to greet us by the time humans get there.
