Mars Ice House Built of Ice and Gas

The discovery of ice on Mars has prompted engineers to begin designing a Mars Ice House that could shelter early explorers. The Ice House is based on an inflatable structure that would be filled with pure ice water once on the planet. The materials are translucent, which would let light enter the structure and alleviate claustrophobia, and the design would be able to be pressurized allowing residents to work safely without needing to wear pressurized suits inside.
