Echelons better than lead-filled kids’ toys and knockoff Land Rovers (Land Wind??), this Chinese-built Martian base in the Gobi Desert is something to behold. Created to simulate a base station on the planet Mars, Chinese company C-Space’s Mars Base 1 will eventually open up to the public. The idea behind it is to provide visitors with a Mars-like experience without the near-zero gravity and unbreathable atmosphere, of course. And as if you didn’t already know, China is working fast-and-furious-like with its China National Space Administration program that may actually send a man to the moon with distant plans to colonize Mars. The Mars Base 1 station is composed of a main dome and nine separate modules. Housed within are living quarters, greenhouse, airlock, and a main control center. And just so you know they’ve got a sense of humor in the midst of red rock desolation, there’s a black monolith parked out there a-la 2001: A Space Odyssey.
