Despite the thin atmosphere on Mars, there are strong sufficient winds to produce energy that can power missions there.

Comparatively speaking, Mars' atmosphere is relatively thin, having only 1% density.

As a result, the winds there are only approximately 1% as strong as those on our planet.

The fact that even rapid winds don't transmit much force is one of the main obstacles for power generation on Mars.

Recently, though, researchers have concentrated on developing wind turbines that can generate electricity even from light winds.

If wind energy could be utilized on Mars, it might fill essential functions that other energy sources currently do not.
