Comparison of Deimos and Phobos as Destinations for Human Exploration, and Identification of Preferred Landing Sites (16 pages)
•For a solar-powered mission with a focus on tele-robotic operation of Mars surface assets, Deimos is a better choice of location than Phobos, due to its superior coverage of sites on the Martian surface and extended durations of constant sunlight.
•A human mission to Deimos could visit the identified Northern and Southern sites during their respective summer seasons
•Human missions to Deimos are possible with relatively few new technologies
Telerobotics and telepresence could be performed from Deimos and Phobos to almost any site on Mars.
Deimos has a mean radius of 6.2 kilometers (3.9 miles)
Phobos has a mean radius of 11.1 kilometers (6.9 miles)
