You guys should read the book Trilogy-
Red Mars
Green Mars
Blue Mars

It's all about terraforming Mars until it becomes an Earth-like planet, and then in Blue Mars Earth and Mars have the first Interplanetary war. It's /really/ good.

well .... mars core is pretty much dead ( inactive ) so right there its a dead end ..
no active core = no magnetic field .... and are you sure about ice on mars? , i never heard of it ... even if we could melt that ice , it would pass strait from the solid state to the gaz state and escape into outa space . the magnetic field is not strong enough to keep a most of the vital elements trap on mars ....

well with the thecnologies we have at the moment its imposible to terraform mars ... but maybe one day it will be possible

little correction , " the planet is not dence enough to keep most of the vital elements traped on mars " ... not the magnetic field ....

The magnetic field is part of the equation in a big way.
Without a strong field to protect it, the atmosphere can be stripped away by solar winds.

If you'd like two awesome books that include terraforming Mars. They are called Spin and Axis

When I was writing the description I forgot that it is dry Ice in the poles, though some research has found that there may be large quantities underneath it. Obviously this is all hypothetical and clearly it would be very difficult to create a sustained atmosphere.

then tilt it towards the sun- invent an artificial atmosphere for it.

It has a thick enough atmosphere to support life if it were at the same distance from the sun as earth, but as it stands, not enough heat reaches into the atmosphere to become trapped and so on.
Also, the ice at the poles is dry ice, meaning it's mainly CO2
#177 to #172 - blamie

Actually, the planets gravity is so small that the atmosphere has pretty much evaporated in to space, because its like 60% the size of earth. Distance from the sun has nothing to do with it. Even then, on Earth, helium and hydrogen are so light that they float up to the upper atmosphere and are blown in to space by solar wind....
#181 to #177 - Crusader

(01/17/2013) [-]
Yes, but it isn't helium an hydrogen that account for us having an atmosphere that keeps us at a stable temperature, it is the fact that we are 80% nitrogen, 19% oxygen 1% assorted gases. With a layer of greenhouse gases laying over top.
#183 to #181 - blamie

(01/17/2013) [-]
My point is that mars is too light to hold an atmosphere that isn't molecular carbon because nitrogen and oxygen are too light in their natural form.

Then all we have to do is push mars a little closer to the sun right? I mean how hard could it be right?

or just give it a more greenhousish atmosphere. if we didn't have ours, we would freeze to death. obviously we don't have the technology yet to make an atmosphere....YET!

Moon is the closest body to earth. this means its easier to travel to than any other planets, and also to communicate with.
Scientists have recently found water on the moon, and It might be possible if we make air tight greenhouses, and with enough water you could create a planet which could support life.

You can create an atmosphere, using the greenhouse to control the air, temperature, pressure etc.

They should send probes full of bacteria and **** that can live on Mars conditions and just see what happens

bacteria wouldnt change anything then unless you sent an ecosystem for it to survive off of, even then it would thrive to crittical levels, a hostile bacteria would make the planet almost impossible to live on
