Planetary Geology on Earth

Recommended Posts

With the Perseverance Rover more than halfway to Mars equipped with a tracking code trackable on Geocaching.com, Geocaching HQ and the Geological Society of America are excited to give geocachers the opportunity to view and learn about geological features on Earth that also exist on Mars. Therefore, we are introducing a new series of EarthCaches: Planetary Geology on Earth.

 

Read more about this cool new variety of EarthCache:

 

Some of these new EarthCaches have already been created and you can see them here: Planetary Geology on Earth.  More will be joining them in the coming months and beyond. If you're interested in contributing, use the resources linked above, especially the Help Center page, for guidance. It's really cool that you can visit geological features on Earth, and learn that the same geological features exist on other planets!

I'm very excited that we can be a part of this fun and educational initiative! Earth and Mars have so much in common, and EarthCaches are a great vehicle for demonstrating their connections.
