Tyrolean glacier turned into Mars – expedition launched in Kaunertal Valley

"Mars had water on its surface some three million years ago. Up until now there are still rock glaciers which exist i.e. ice under the rocks or sand surface”, said Gernot Grömer, President of ÖWF. These rock glaciers are very similar to those in the Kaunertal Valley, which is why this area is particularly suited for Mars simulations. “Life on Mars could exist on this ice”, Grömer added.

Nevertheless, now is the time to already investigate which technical challenges await a manned Mars expedition. “Every crisis situation which we have here would enable us to prevent this from happening on Mars”, said the ÖWF President. On balance, the simulation involving participants from 19 nations will carry out twelve experiments in different areas. In addition to examining the ice, a new type of steam shower will be tested, as well as a 3D printer for dental implants in space.
