Sorry, Despite Decades Of Exploration, Mars Remains Almost A Total Mystery

Posted in robotics/AI, space

A recent column in The Atlantic magazine, “The Most Overhyped Planet in the Galaxy” implored the research community to expand its robotic exploration horizons beyond Mars. But despite arguments for rethinking what the article’s author, Marina Koren, terms the U.S.’ scientific “Mars monopoly” in favor of some of our solar system’s less-visited outer moons, scientific understanding of the Red Planet is arguably still decades away.

Rest assured, Mars should and will remain a scientific Valhalla for decades to come.
