    Enjoy.


    Buy and watch BBC To Mars By A-Bomb The Secret History of Project Orion.

    I truly believe we will start to terraform Mars within the next 50 years. It is possible. Will it happen? Who knows. *There was a heated, but nice and pleasant discussion in the chat about this*

    Scientists and other people within the Space Community are saying that anywhere from the next 20 to 75 years we will be terraforming Mars.

    You know when star trek came out all of that sci fi technology made people flabbergast. But Star Trek did not even have cell phones. That's how crazy technology can evolved sometimes.

    Batman invented the carphone, how about that?

    -

    But seriously: We need to focus first on ourselves before we even try taking a step outside. Fix America, fix the Middle East, fix this and that.

    And something else crossed my mind: On a A-bomb to Mars? Are you kidding me? How more American can you be! People, listen, you don't need to use nukes for everything, not even the sun. What next? Nuclear bicycles? Jeez.

    Actually, I think they had a cell phone.
    I remember Kirk using some goofy-looking brass and plastic handheld as a phone.

    Huh.
    I could've sworn they had cellphones...

    On topic; Terraforming? In 50 years?
    That's fairly... err... hard to believe.

    Not that we will be done, but that we will start.

    Ah. Still a bit hard to grasp though.
    Terraforming... Wow.

    Well no shit, Sherlock. People could 'start' to fly 100 years ago, doesn't mean they could land without an excruciatingly painful death.

    People could start to fly since the dawn of humanity.
    They just didn't get very far.

    Hahaha, I've read all kinds of crap on this subject, it would take FOREVER to make mars a truely stable planet to live on. We'd have to get an atmosphere going, which would probably be imposible for the next 100 years at minimum. Then you'd have to get soil for plants and trees to grow to keep a cycle of oxegen moving. You'd also need the oxygen there, and we kinda need it here to keep living. Then theres getting there. With the things that have happend over the past 500 years, I doubt humanity is going to get along for very long when this happens. Remeber the moon landing? I'm pretty sure theres a heated argument going on still about if the US technically owns it or not.

    And an A-bomb? COME THE F*CK ON!!! why would we blow up half another planet? Why already have that problem here, the last thing we need is the UN pissing on everybody for voting to send an A-bomb to the surface of mars. Humnaity needs bigger brains, not balls right now *Cough US cough*

    Humanity has way too many problems on its home turf to even try going past the moon, much less going to mars.

    well im guessing your skimmed through it. An Nuclear propelled space shuttle is an excelent way to get to mars. And we could produce oxygen there, what do you think, were gona steal oxygen from earth lmao

    Crap, I re-read my thing and I forgot the fact that mars is too far away to keep a sutable tempurature to sustin plants and animals all year round like we do on earth.
    And please explain how we would produce enough oxygen to keep a planet livable

    Lol bro. Ok 1. Scientist has estiamted that at the exact alignment when mars is closest to earth would take 6months to travel there. When we do get there we establish a bio dome base. Inside there we grow our own vegetables and plants and have a water system. The plants will slowly be producing oxygen for the members of the recon mission to live there for 6 months before coming back with samples of Mars and more information. On the second trip we build factories that produce carbon dioxide, oxygen, as well as other checmicals that are in our atmoshphere here. And blah blah blah. I gave links, i dont feel like explaining everything, y dont u just read them?

    The biggest problem would probably be the lack of a magnetosphere on Mars.

    What a funny thread ^^

    Colonizing Mars would be too expensive. Perhaps when our nice mother earth is down one day and menkind does not know where to live, men will try this.
    But so far, Mars terraforming costs are too high and so, they won't do that.
    Think about this: NASA often cancels space trips because of the giant amount of costs for just one trip, though space shuttles just go into the orbit! Therefore, logically, sending an armada of space shoutles in order to colonize or terraform Mars would be too expensive! And that would not be changing for the next 50 years.
