I seem to remember reading somewhere that terraforming Mars is just the stuff of Sci Fi because of the gravity on Mars and the lack of a magnetic
The minimum amount of atmospheric pressure that people need to live is about 1/2 that of normal Earth sea-level pressure. The amount of air needed to
be delivered to Mars in order to have that pressure is about 2,193,000,000,000,000 U.S. tons (a little over 1/3 of all the air on Earth. Because of
the weak gravitational pull on the surface of Mars, a thicker layer of air is needed than on Earth to attain the same pressure.)
► The gravitational pull on Mars is so little that if enough air were to be put in place (perhaps from comets or debris from Saturn's rings), it
would leak off into space within a short time.
With the present Martian air pressure, water cannot remain in the liquid form needed for plants and animals. The Martian atmospheric pressure is only
0.6 % (1/159) of Earths. Of that tiny amount, only 0.13% is oxygen.
But hey I may be wrong ...darn it phage where are you when we need your wisdom.
We need a Phagesignal like Batman has
