Living on Mars

Living on Mars is a National Geographic production documentary dealing with the possibilities of making Mars more hospitable to humans, thus terraforming it.
“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.”

    It’s a myth that Mars doesn’t have enough mass to retain an atmosphere. Mars has enough mass and gravity to hold an atmosphere up to 3 times thicker than we have right now on Earth (the Earth, too, could hold a much denser atmosphere). Also, Mars is traditionally false-tinted with red coloring. Without the false red added by NASA/JPL, the martian sky is blue with white, wispy clouds, and a tan terrain that looks like Arizona. Don’t take my word for it. Do your own checking.
