Terraforming Mars by edlo Terraforming Mars by edlo
This will probably never happen, I mean Terraforming Mars, but in that case we will probably fu.. up another planet also. :P
Thanks for stopping by.

Nice. I like the atmosphere of this painting, with that low orange sun.

To be honest with you... Terra-forming mars is THEORETICALLY POSSIBLE BUT we do not have the technology wait for like I dunno 150 250 years? Anyways we could heat up the planet with factories that release Co2. Co2 in the atmosphere which is a common greenhouse gas which is essential, if your thinking of "OMG, GLOBAL WARMING?!?!" Your right but in a good way once there is enough heat to be trapped in the atmosphere water from the the frozen ice caps shall melt once there is water next step is plant life put plants on the that planet if your thinking plants need oxygen no they don't, they survive on carbon dioxide as they absorb carbon dioxide they release oxygen and I don't want to explain the rest of teh stuff but still there are many problems of transforming first mars does not have a STRONG MAGNETIC FIELD solar flares sun radiation and all that bad crap that would fry us to death... And how about small organism that are in the state of suspension that are harmful to Humans? We shall never know but what I do know is I'll be already dead before it happens or not :XD:

It's goergous idea...
I don't have any doubts, that if people live on Mars or any other planet, they would make a dumping groud on it, like on Earth today... ]
Anyway, your work is really great, I love it.

Nice 3D work, I remain confident that Mars will be colonised and possibly terraformed one day...just not as soon as everyone is expecting. I also remain confident that by the time we are that advanced, litter and pollution would be a thing of the past...But I guess it would be too late for our original home by then :earth:

Well I also had much enthusiasm about the terraforming of mars, so much that I read heavily on the subject.
The procedure knowledge and technology to do it its all possible and existent, the problem is first that mars its too small to hold a thick atmosphere, the second and most important is that mars doesn't have an electromagnetic field hence all atmosphere would be swept away by solar flares and solar winds, that is what probably happened in the first place.
Mars cooled down and as its core solidified the electromagnetic field was lost and the atmosphere was lost into space, even if we start filling up mars atmosphere with green house gases and start producing oxygen and nitrogen all that effort would probably be swept into space once again.
Only if we come up with a manufactured force field it would be possible to defend mars against solar activity, and we certainly dont have the tech or knowledge to do this.
That is why much research and effort is applied to searching for earth like planets on other stars. [link]

Why Pepsi and not Coca Cola?
