    That would be 40::C. I saw the movie "John Carter from Mars".
    No shirts and all skirts, gotta be warm there.

    Yeah, it'd be HELL to find any deadfalls that you could cut and split yourself up there on Mars. You'd probably have to rely on a firewood dealer and we all know how reliable their "seasoned" wood is......:mad:

    43::F, but this is still late winter on Mars where the rover is. Summer looks like it could be t-shirt weather. Still, you'd want a really good stove for the evenings.

    "While Curiosity's days are relatively pleasant weather-wise, the same can't be said for the rover's nights. Air temperatures drop dramatically after the sun goes down, plunging as low as minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 70 Celsius) just before dawn, scientists said."

    Might be some coal up there....
    It's gonna cost a bundle to ship Okies there. I think they will settle for nuke, solar and maybe wind.

    From what I've read the surface ground temp at the mars equator in it summer can hit 70F. But thats at ground level and the air is so thin that at the height of humans head it could be only freezing at the same time. And then like begreen pointed out it gets very cold at night.

    Well, don't forget, you got that 8-9 month delivery time working in your favor. Cost per cord? Hmm, I'll have to get back to ya with that estimate. :rolleyes:
