‘Dune’s’ desert planet would be possible, according to scientists

Posted by in category: futurism

If you are not clued up on Arrakis it is a desert planet that is home to a valuable mineral in the Dune universe called ‘spice’ which is mined using giant harvesters. As you can imagine being a desert planet isn’t a desirable place to be and to make it worse, water is such a scarce commodity that people have to wear suits that will harness the body’s water so it can be replenished and drank.

If that wasn’t bad enough, there are also gigantic sandworms that roam the deserts of Arrakis, which to put it bluntly, you just don’t want to encounter.
