Picture of the Week: A Model Example June 26, 2008

Posted by Nick Azer in Malapert, Picture of the Week.

That is a model of Malapert and the surrounding area (click for larger image), created by high school students for a project with NASA’s Tom Riley of the Goddard Space Center. Labeled on there is Mount Malapert itself (a Peak of Eternal Light, which as you can imagine is good for solar power) on the right, the South Pole below it, and to the upper left the students’ proposed spot for a settlement. The Malapert area is a leading candidate for the location of NASA’s moon base, which’ll be up and running by 2030.

Also, there’s a section rather curiously marked “The Cold and the Dark”. A quick google on that turns up a book about the aftermath of nuclear warhmm.
