And where are you going to get a faculty member from Martian University to do your advisement/pass on your thesis defense?

who?

i just 'ran it up the flagpople' to my advisor and while we agreed it would be very cool and the field research would be choice, vulcanospeleology is not what i've been gearing everything towards.

admittedly, the principle is fairly straightforward. modify the existing rules for lava tube creation on the earth to account for martian changes in gravity, atmosphere and mineral content, identify the question marks and extrapolate from the new rules where you might find additional lava tubes.

Then, with Odessey, either thumb back through existing data or *suggest* NASA point their cameras at a specific place to verify your hypothesis. Modify, rinse, repeat.

however, it looks like i may be doing something in the Elk River instead.

Oh, if I have to explain it, you're too young (you lucky person.)
:doh:


"Uncle Martin" played by Ray Walston in the TV sitcom "My Favorite Martian".

He kept his broken spaceship in the garage of his journalist nephew (played by Bill Bixby) and kept trying to fix it with 1960s earth technology.
