That image link works, but that man isn't at the top of Mt Everest, there's not even snow or ice on the ground where he's standing, maybe a few traces of it but no way he's at the top, he'd freeze dressed like that if he was, you lose a lot of heat through your head and it's cold up there.

I found this pic in the internet, here you can see hair. That and a warm coat is all you need to survive Mars, depending on the temperature:
That image link appears to be broken, I get this:
Why would Nasa lie? Well nasas clearly a front with the bearded nintendo hawaii shirt scientists they parade on Tv to something bigger, its like from a movie script its not even believable at this point anymore. Look at this picture, this is the best thing Nasa has come up with with a Mars travel, and they say this might fly in 2040
Just like if the US build secret basses on the moon. Do you realize the strategic significant of even having one missile silo on the moon? Much less hidden basis.
Let just say, if it happened, there would be no space race, and likely no Russia or China right now, and we would be under a one world government, and the rich would be dinning on the moon and holding parties there. Ever read a book the moon is a harsh mistress, by Robert A Heinlein.
On earth, it is suspected we get about 1 microsievert per day from cosmic radiation (sun). 2.4-5mSv per year. Of it 10-15% is from sun. 1mSv = 1000 microsieverts
. The worldwide average natural dose to humans is about 2.4 mSv (240 mrem) per year.
Cosmic radiation from space
Yearly Average world, 0.39 mSv.
0.6% atmosphere on Mars blocks 1.45msv. 210 microsieverts hit Mars of the 1.66 mSv which exists at orbit.
6% atmosphere on Mars would block 14.5mSv 0 microsieverts would pass since there was only 1.66mSv to start with.
60% atmosphere on Mars would block 145mSv 0 microsieverts would pass since there was only 1.66mSv to start with.
100% atmosphere on Mars would block 241.6 mSv, 0 microsieverts would pass since there was only 1.66mSv to start with.
How bad is the radiation on Mars?
NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft was equipped with a special instrument called the Martian Radiation Experiment (or MARIE), which was designed to measure the radiation environment around Mars. Since Mars has such a thin atmosphere, radiation detected by Mars Odyssey would be roughly the same as on the surface.
Over the course of about 18 months, the Mars Odyssey probe detected ongoing radiation levels which are 2.5 times higher than what astronauts experience on the International Space Station – 22 millirads per day, which works out to 8000 millirads (8 rads) per year. The spacecraft also detected 2 solar proton events, where radiation levels peaked at about 2,000 millirads in a day, and a few other events that got up to about 100 millirads.
A summer day on Mars may get up to 70 degrees F (20 degrees C) near the equator, but at night the temperature can plummet to about minus 100 degrees F (minus 73 C).

Im quite sure they are on mars. They use those triangle low gravity ships to get to space silently from earth. Then they either transfer astronauts to other ships on orbit which take them to moon and behind it is some bigger ship which goes to Mars.
Or they use spy satellite launches to get astronauts on orbit, they are then picked by black triangle craft with those electro engines which they are creating. These dont leave heat signature so chinese infrared camera sensor satellites cant see them.
They are dropped on Mars in soyuz like pods. Probably mostly 26-38 aged folks, generals sons or people who are related to each other somehow and to usa "elites" so they are reliable.
They have likely different teams on Mars, few are deep under cover military officers who keep a check on people.
They have an archeology team, consists of maybe 2-3 teams of men, 2-3 people per team who drive in the desert with ground penetrating radar, stopping and searching for temples and pyramids. Data is transferred back to base where likely one or two woman archeologist go through the data and they tell the teams where to go next.
They have Uav,s up too. Likely fuel based and small airfields too.
They are probably not concerned on how to get back yet, they are mainly building bases and scouting. Plans for a huge underground base is probably underway, near a underground water source.
They have gyms, showers, maybe even a swimming pool.
They find soft but steady enough rock, have tunnelboring machines bore into them. Then they seal them airtight with a hose and some liquid. Then they either live there or use small trucks to drive modules in and live in them.
Theres oxygen generator, nuclear power station, it likely has specialty person or persons, looking after them. Lab, workshop, computers. All kind of machines.
It inside looks probably like the colony in movie Aliens. Theres a food messhall, somekinda mainroom with a big screen, probably a projector.
They have all kind of work to do. Probably testing and planning new rifles for mars gravity (to be ready in future if unallowed guests arrive). Planned on earth, then they drop them on Mars when a new version comes.
They might even have miniature submarines swimming in underground lakes searching for proof of old civilizations. There might even be bacteria or viruses or small animals found in them or fossiles.
Theres already probably martian food availeble like moss and mushrooms (mondays) but most prefer their mre or what was airdropped for chef to make food from.
So if i can think of this, im quite sure some 5 star general can come up with it too, and have it done.
Elon Musk has no clue whats going on.

More wasted money on science fiction.
Absolutely none of NASA's sh@t is real.
