Re: NASA finds Masses of Water on Mars !!!!! (Southern Man)

Your post is interesting ... I'll leave it at that.

1. How large does a solar panel have to be? Who cares? You make it as big as it needs to be.

2. Hydrocarbons are remarkably inefficient. And are worthless without an oxidizer. So what oxidizer is available on Mars? Oxygen separated from water. And what is the by-product of that separation? Hydrogen. So carbon is of little or no value.

3. In Mars' very light atmosphere ... winds may be fast ... but they do not pack the raw power of those on earth. Their destructive power might be more related to sand-blasting than mechanical force.

4. What does nitrogen have to do with anything?

5. I'll go with thinking outside the box ... but argon? Last time I checked it was listed as one of the least reactive elements known. If one was looking for something least likely to be of use ... argon would only but beaten by neon and helium.
