Archmage Cleps;4407483Apart from the fact that you can't breathe Mars' atmosphere, has anyone considered meteorite impacts? Because most of the stuff that comes into our (rather thick) atmosphere is incinerated, with Mars that won't be the case; there are, and will be, far more meteorite impacts there than on Earth.

Actually that's not quite true. Before Earth was like this, there were more craters than Mars have. The meteors crashed more than we do in cars today! There's always a possibility to convert Mars atmosphere a day in the future. Could be anytime, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, next century. We cannot know when exactly something will happen, as all the time scientists study, and at any given time, they may discover how to convert Mars.

That's actually quite interesting now i think about it.:uhoh:

That's cause there were more of them. By more, of course I mean more in terms of orders of magnitude.

See, the thing I don't understand about that is, that the prevailing theory is that Mars had an atmosphere sometime in the distant past...but it all escaped. So the real question is, we can certainly make an atmosphere, but can we make it faster than it disappears?

If you can get onto Mars by this time tomorrow, I'll give you a hundred bucks.
