When Elon Musk’s BFR takes its first batch of colonists to Mars, what should they wear? What should they pack for the weather they’ll encounter?
A whole lot.
The temperature on Mars can reach around 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) at noon, at the equator in the summer. So that’s comfortable.
But in the winter, at the poles, it can reach a low of -225 degrees Fahrenheit (-153 degrees Celsius). That’s cold! Very cold!
So if you’re putting your name in to be one of those colonists, pack well. One warm-weather outfit and a whole lot of really, really warm clothes.
