Wind farms on Mars could power future astronaut bases

Although the air on Mars is thin, the winds there are strong enough to generate power that can support missions to the Red Planet, a new study finds.

The atmosphere on mars it’s very thin compared to Earth’s, possessing only about 1% of the density, so winds there only carry about 1% of the force of our planet. As such, researchers have long ignored wind power there as a viable source of power for missions.
