Carbon dioxide: 95.32 percent
Nitrogen: 2.7 percent
Argon: 1.6 percent
Oxygen: 0.13 percent
Carbon monoxide: 0.08 percent


All we have to do is get a lot of plants growing there and recycle water in domes. We could grow a self sustaining breathable atmosphere if we build a base there.

You mean terraforming.

Yeah, I had no idea that there was that much carbon dioxide. We could turn that place into a jungle in no time. Hell, we wouldn't even necessarily need people to do it.

Awesome news, but too bad it'll take them into the 2030's.

Well, just use an old fashioned broom then.

I swear, we have all become way too dependent on modern conveniences.

Honestly I think it would be a waste of money. Robots do just fine on mars. We should do the same with Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

Re: Nasa Approves Rocket To Take Humans To Mars

Can we start a list of people we want to volunteer for the first mission? I would like to start with justin beiber, lindsey lohan and the kardashians. Oh and the first mission does NOT have to be televised if we are sending this lot! Unless of course there is an explosion involved. At which time I will want full details and video from EVERY angle!

As a side note, when I try to type justin beiber on here, autocorrect changes it to "briber". Things that make you go hmmm.

That's what I was thinking: send a whole fleet of ships carrying hundreds or thousands of sophisticated automatons and enough materiel and supplies to terraform the fuck out of mars first, then send people there once the robots have gotten it nice and cozy for us.

I think that's a much better idea. I mean, shit, it's not like it's rocket scien-- oh, wait. Nevermind.

Let's see, Mars has these major conditions -

No liquid water, dry. Near vacuum due to a light atmosphere. The atmosphere of Mars is less than 1% of Earth's, so it does not protect the planet from the Sun's radiation nor does it do much to retain heat at the surface. Very cold. On average, the temperature on Mars is about minus 80 degrees F (minus 60 degrees C). In winter, near the poles temperatures can get down to minus 195 degrees F (minus 125 degrees C). No active soil biology (sterile). Soil has high salinity content. Now, find an plant on earth that will not only survive in those conditions, but thrives as well.

Re: Nasa Approves Rocket To Take Humans To Mars

Let's pretend for a moment we had a ship large and advanced enough to make the trip in a reasonable time. Let's aslo pretend it could carry enough people, supplies, and building material to set up a self sufficient base. Now let's also pretend we did it. What would be the purpose?
We can't even set up a colony on the moon, forget about Mars.
