I have seen it, and there is vegetation and orchards on the top of the mountians. I'm not sure how they irrigate it, but it looks really amazing!
Where exactly are you talking about? What city in New Mexico?
New Mexico state university has several "Agriculture Experiment Stations"
through New Mexico, so I'm wondering
if you are referring to one of these stations, or something else.
If you are referring to the military base near Dulce, New Mexico, this would seem a more likely explanation for what they are doing there than some
theories I have heard, but I have not been able to find any satellite or other aerial footage of the Dulce Base area. Do a google search for "Dulce
Papers" if you don't know what I'm talking about.
From maps.google.com if you look in the Dulce, NM area you can see quite a bit of greenage in the hills surrounding Ducle, but you cannot zoom in on
the area, and google has definitely used agricultural looking circles on their satellite maps to hide "sensitive" information and images at higher
So... as said... do you have any more information to share? You went to this place, right? How close could you get to the area you saw?
Terraforming is a pretty interesting science as we try to take what we know about Earth and adapt it to other places in the Universe. A very
interesting article about terraforming can be found
at this link.
some of the scientific theory behind terraforming and a theory from an MIT undergraduate which may be (at this time, at least) the most likely way we
could being a terraform of Mars.
