MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Scientists are using the pine-forested slopes of a Mexican volcano as a test bed to see if trees could grow on a heated-up Mars, part of a vision of making the chilly and barren red planet habitable for humans one day.

Planetary scientists at NASA and Mexican universities believe if they can warm Mars using heat-trapping gases, raise the air pressure and start photosynthesis, they could create an atmosphere that would support oxygen-breathing life forms.


Is that cool or what. They are getting serious about this mars thing.
Its just a matter of time and we will be living on mars, hopefully before we blow ourselves up again.

Hey it's a pretty cool idea thats been going around for a while, a lot of reports written on the subject of terraforming mars. Only downside is it would take a few hundred years, probably more than that!
