Elon Musk's mission to colonize Mars might seem like an impossible one, like we saw in The Martian and other movies, but soon it will become a reality. In this article, I will discuss Elon Musk's Mars Colonization facts.
I believe in the nearest future it will become possible as the way our technology is growing in space exploration.
How we can terraform mars?
To make Mars habitable, it is difficult with our current technology to terraform Mars. To make humans walk in the mars surface without spacesuit we need to increase pressure & temperature on Mars. Mars is a colder planet so if the temperature increases water will be able to stay there in liquid form which is very important for terrestrial life support. To increase temperature & pressure on Mars we have to add a significant amount of gas to Mars's current atmosphere which are greenhouse gases. We also need CO2 from the south polar ice cap of the planet but according to the research, there is not enough of it to terraform the entire planet. Also, we have to block the ultraviolet rays coming from the sun like it is blocked on earth by the ozone layer. There is also another problem that is solar radiation which is present on Mars. We have to find a way to avoid all these there will be lots of challenges to overcome. So, for the timing, it seems like impossible to terraform the planet.
