The First Artist To Set Foot On Mars?

"Here is a new montage showing the base of the space elevator on the tented town called 'Sheffield,' built on the summit of Pavonis Mons volcano (see Red Mars). The cable is supposed to be 10m thick, which means that Sheffield City is very big here, at a large level of development. In the foreground, you can see colored urban lights. I imagine the main entry to the planet's surface would like to be a rich and welcoming show for new settlers. I also imagine the tent skin would be blue, to balance the so red and grey landscape."
