The Lava Tube

by Raymond Cassel
Category: Martian Settlements

Description: Lava tubes could provide a way of expanding the Martian settlement underground without having to invest in large excavation machines. Here we see two explorers investigating an entrance to a lava tube using a small rover. The strange presence of stalactites and stalagmites suggests that water once trickled through the rocks above.

Medium/Tools Used: LightWave 9.2 and Photoshop CS3.
