I'm counting on Dr. Sumguy to invent anything we need to make this work. His track record is 100%.

Oh, humans are like roaches..... you can't kill us all.

I agree.  Some will survive.  Evolution will continue.  It always does.

At first I thought this thread was about anything people have wondered about, not a specific think like living on Mars. Oh, well.

Evolution continuing does not guarantee humans continuing. Ask the dodo.

Here's a question. Mars has a weak magnetosphere, I wonder if man could figure out a way to bolster that? That's the true terraforming.

found some of this on the terraforming wiki
"One key aspect of terraforming Mars is to protect the atmosphere (both present and future-built) from being lost into space. Some scientists hypothesize that creating a planet-wide artificial magnetosphere would be helpful in resolving this issue. According to two NIFS Japanese scientists, it is feasible to do that with current technology by building a system of refrigerated latitudinal superconducting rings, each carrying a sufficient amount of direct current.[62]

In the same report, it is claimed that the economic impact of the system can be minimized by using it also as a planetary energy transfer and storage system (SMES).

Another study proposes the deployment of a magnetic dipole shield at the Mars L1 Lagrange point, therefore creating a partial and distant artificial magnetosphere located between Mars and the Sun, that would protect the whole planet from solar wind and radiation.[21]"

What about making Mars a ringed planet, ringed with a lot of magnetized asteroids?

Lots of little asteroids that attract one another sounds like a good idea because...?

I don't think we're unique in that regard.

IMO he should be focusing on asteroid mining. And space manufacturing.

Probably more lucrative but no where near as sexy.

Or... how's about a ring around Uranus?
