Is Mars habitable? Let's know in short
The question is, "Is it habitable, and for whom?" Mars is hundreds of degrees colder than Earth, it has a hundred times less atmosphere, and that the atmosphere has hardly any oxygen. But there may
be other forms of life that could have evolved that aren't very much like us but are very much like the early forms of life that evolved on Earth.
Also Read: Mars colonization can be challenging with real problems.
Mars has evidence of being warmer in the past and of having stable liquid surface water for potentially hundreds of thousands of years.
So it's possible that in Mars's past there was a time where life could have evolved in that particular environment.
So, "Is Mars habitable?" and as of yet, the answer is still definitely maybe.

The moment that my team dreamed of for years, now a reality. Dare mighty things. #CountdownToMars pic.twitter.com/8SgV53S9KG— NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover (@NASAPersevere) February 19, 2021
An open horizon, with so much to explore. Can’t wait to get going. #CountdownToMars pic.twitter.com/hAaxeVGs04— NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover (@NASAPersevere) February 19, 2021
I love rocks. Look at these right next to my wheel. Are they volcanic or sedimentary? What story do they tell? Can’t wait to find out.#CountdownToMarshttps://t.co/7w3rbvbyoL pic.twitter.com/H3q1M0YJAd— NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover (@NASAPersevere) February 19, 2021
Ingenuity, the Mars Helicopter I carry, is working as expected. I’m currently charging it, but once I set it down, it’ll rely solely on its solar panels. If it survives the brutally cold Martian nights, the team will attempt flight. https://t.co/8pksN06ZwP #CountdownToMars pic.twitter.com/80kEoww0QU— NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover (@NASAPersevere) February 20, 2021
