Living on Mars pt 1/5 (Mars: Making The New Earth)


Description:

The notion of bringing Mars to life - transforming a cold, dry, uninhabitable desert into a living planet - is called terraforming, has been around for almost a century. Initially just a science fiction concept, it has become a subject of serious scientific investigation. Recent discoveries of rocks and minerals found by the Mars rovers show it must once have had warmer, habitable living conditions. Now, using photorealistic CGI visualizations, we'll make a science fiction dream of Mars - a world of trees, rivers and blue skies - a plausible future, bringing it to life after three and a half billion years in a deep freeze.

Living on Mars

STEPS TO TERRAFORMING MARS

On the surface, the red planet's freeze-dried world of rocks, ice, and dust looks like an unlikely place to plant a garden. But rocks and minerals found by the Mars rovers show it must once have had warmer, habitable living conditions. Now, using photorealistic CGI visualizations, we'll make a science fiction dream of Mars — a world of trees, rivers, and blue skies — a plausible future, bringing it to life after three-and-a-half billion years in a deep freeze.

• The first and most important step in making Mars habitable is to warm it up, raising the average temperature 35 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. (Average Mars temperature is about -81 degrees Fahrenheit.)
• Bold concepts on how to warm up Mars range from detonating hydrogen bombs and guiding space rocks on a collision course with Mars to setting up little factories on the planet whose intent is to produce greenhouse gases.
• Much of the new Mars would be an icy world, like summer above the Arctic Circle, with atmospheric pressure equivalent to a mountain twice the height of Mt. Everest.
• The next step is turning Mars green and producing a breathable atmosphere, which will be a much longer and more difficult process.
• Lichen and moss, which thrive on carbon dioxide, will be the first imports of plant life from Earth, perhaps 50 to 100 years after warming begins. They build soil, create more nutrients and pave the way for grass and woody shrubs.
• Once established, Martian forests will spread on their own, improving the soil and the atmosphere, creating a livable world for more than just plants.
• It could take 100,000 years for trees to transform an icy blue Mars with a carbon dioxide atmosphere into a warm, green planet with enough oxygen for humans to breathe.
• A fully terraformed Mars may never be as warm and wet as Earth because it's too small and too far from the sun. Low elevations where the atmosphere is thicker and regions near the equator will be the warmest.

    Mars has life and is inhabited...people come and go from Earth to mars via jump room...check out Andrew Basiago and others...wakeupsheeple!!These "Programs" are designed to prepare the sheeple to what has already happened...

    Anyone following the more esoteric voices in science today such as Richard Hoagland would critically debate this program. He would state quite clearly that Mars already has life. Reviewing the ancient Vedic Texts from India, they tell of Mars being a water planet at around 10,500 BC. So to state that Mars has been uninhabited for billions of years is a farce. Then we have the ruins of Cydonia, and pyramidal structures that have the same geometric patters as those that can be seen here on Earth in Egypt. Listening to people in Exopolitics we here that Mars is currently inhabited by living creatures, humans and people that have lived on Mars for a very very long time. Any information produced by the mainstream should be viewed with a skeptical mind at best. But the topic is interesting.
