NOTHING TO DO WITH ANIMALS – HANGLIDING ON MARS

March 2007

Couldn’t resist this. NASA has produced a couple of videos integrating all their satellite views of the Martian surface. In these clips, it feels like you’re hang-gliding over the Red Planet. If this was a Physics-Letter I’d ask you to calculate how big a hang-glider would have to be to keep a human aloft in the thin Martian atmosphere, but it isn’t so I won’t. Clip one, clip two.
