Wind farms on Mars could power future astronaut bases

A new study finds that although the air on Mars is thin, the winds there are strong enough to generate energy that could support missions to the Red Planet.

The atmosphere on Mars is very thin compared to Earth’s, only about 1% thick, so the winds there only carry about 1% of our planet’s force. As such, researchers have long ignored wind power there as a vital source of energy for missions.
