Looks like I can start acclimating to Martian conditions before I even leave home!
Temperatures on Mars are quite a bit lower than Earth, thanks to a longer orbiting distance and a thinner atmosphere. While summer temperatures near the Martian equator can reach a comfortable 70deg F, lows can easily exceed minus 100deg F. I think I’ll stick with a Michigan winter for now.
On simulated Mars (sMars) temperatures are also quite low. The HI-SEAS habitat is built near 8,000ft elevation allowing for cooler temperatures year round.
