As we all know, Sir Edmund and Tenzing arrived at Everest's summit on May 29, 1953, forty-nine years after that 1st detailed photograph was taken. If the past is any predictor of the future then we may look forward to a successful Aeolis Mons Ascent somewhere around 2061.
There was actually an attempt of this challenging mountain in 1988; I was able to retrieve some rare footage. A party of three took a nasty tumble down the Southeast Ridge (Standard Route). Two of them walked away uninjured; the third one perished.
This is a great idea! I would love to bag this peak. But since I am currently without a transportation, I'll need to bum a ride with someone. But I am willing to chip in on gas.
Now I think a descent down suit is going to be needed:
The temperature on Mars may reach a high of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) at noon, at the equator in the summer, or a low of about -225 degrees Fahrenheit (-153 degrees Celsius) at the poles. Obviously this is very inhospitable for humans, but it is also of some concern for the electronics and mechanical parts of a Mars airplane and its instrumentation. In the mid-latitudes, the average temperature would be about -50 degrees Celsius with a nighttime minimum of -60 degrees Celsius and a summer midday maximum of about 0 degrees Celsius.
According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:3-4
