Scientists studying pictures from Nasa's Odyssey spacecraft have spotted what they think may be seven caves on the surface of Mars.


well I guess that makes habitats a much easier task of creating now, plus with whatever we find in the walls of Valles Marineris.

Bill Stone is definitely a man to keep an eye on. He wowed the audience at TED 2007 with his plan for a manned exploration mission to Shackleton crater equipped with only enough fuel for the outbound trip pour encourager les explorers to well, like, explore.

He's definitely the man for this job too - he really likes caves for a start.
