Terraforming Mars might be nearly impossible — but Elon Musk isn’t phased about it

A kind reminder that we’re living in paradise.

The Mars Terraformer Transfer (MATT):  what it is and how we’d use it

Terraformation need not engineer an entire planetary surface. The Lake Matthew Team introduces their audacious invention.

Climate change on the Red Plant: Mars is emerging out of an ice age

Swirling patterns in the ice of Mars’ North Pole suggest the planet is emerging out of a long ice age that began some 370,000 years ago. The findings are extremely important for climate change, improving our understanding of both Mars’ and Earth’s climate.

Elon Musk: Nuke the Martian poles to terraform it faster

Shipping cyanobacteria to Mars or dumping greenhouse gas into its thin atmosphere might be too slow. Elon Musk is in a hurry, considering he wants to see an 80,000 people colony on Mars during his lifetime. A more drastic, quick fix way of terraforming Mars might be nuking its poles, Musk suggested on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, this Wednesday. “You’re a supervillain!” Colbert said. “That’s what a supervillain does!”

Mars covered in oceans of water: how the red planet might have looked billions of years ago [FANTASTIC PHOTOS]

There seems to be consisting evidence supplied both by past and recent rover missions – like the ever sturdy Opportunity, the eager newcomer Curiosity – and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter – a spacecraft currently hovering over Mars – that our neighboring red planet was once most likely covered by oceans and lakes and was layered by a thick atmosphere, very much similar to

The past and future of space exploration at the ‘Beyond Planet Earth’ exhibit

This year, mankind celebrated 50 years of space exploration since Yuri Gagarin‘s pioneering flight around Earth’s orbit, however the American Museum of Natural History  is more concerned to set its eyes towards future, once with the opening of its new “Beyond Planet Earth” exhibit, which features tomorrow’s space age wonders, as well as relics from the old space programs.
