In pics: China's future Mars simulation base in Qinghai

Photo taken on Aug 18, 2017 shows China's future Mars simulation base in Hongya region of Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan autonomous prefecture in Northwest China's Qinghai province. About 400 million yuan (61 million US dollars) are expected to invest in the Mars scientific research base and eco-tourism site. The red rock area in Qaidam basin in western Qinghai has been called the most "Martian" place on Earth, with its natural features, landscape and climate all similar to those on the red planet. The base is expected to consist of a "Mars community" and a "Mars campsite." The campsite will have a number of experimental module-like accommodations. It will be built as a one-stop base for experiential learning in aerospace, astronomy, geography and new energy. [Photo/Xinhua]
