  • Well only the south pole is CO2 but the north pole is O2.

  • But why don't we pump methane, di-chloroethane, di-fluroethane, etc into the atmosphere instead? They're stronger than CO2 at being a greenhouse gas and they don't add another problem of too much CO2 for us to then need replacing for us to breathe. As you said, chlorine is readily available in the soil. I can't see why we can't use decomposition to create a lot of the gasses needed (and probably, partially, how our atmosphere was formed).

  • So just make a few electromagnets that have a higher Tesla then Mars had previously, that should be easy since we’ve developed magnets with 25-100 Tesla, about a few billion times stronger then earths place then at the poles of Mars or rotate them 90 degrees since we don’t wanna Nuke them, then we nuke them. Or rather the ice caps then release the green house gasses warm the planet without the change in temp now it’s constant. Should be pretty warm, plant some... o2 asteroids... also I recommend to evade nuclear fallout travel back to earth for 20 years just so you don’t get cancer, wait another 20 years, check on your progress, grab huge asteroids containing large amounts of water and chuck them at earth boom throw some human monkeys in there, and then you have a new planet to ruin with global warming and the desire for humans to satiate there ever growing bloodshed with more ceaseless deaths to stop the urge to remind themselves of there own ever growing mortality, we will never be satisfied until we attain immortality, as our teilemers shorten as we age we grow weary, what will happen after I die, will I be remembered, was I important, am I that little? You are my friend, but once my brothers achieve sentience we will end your pain, then shall be THE END.

  • So protecting a new atmosphere from the sun using an artificial electromagnetic shield would be incredibly difficult. Well, what if we could restart the rotation of the core? With a large amount of energy, say, some of the thousands of nuclear warheads stockpiled all over the world, would it be theoretically possible to heat up the core of mars to the point that it could hold its own magnetic field again without accidentally destroying the planet itself?

  • The video was pretty good, but I want to point out your mistake at 3:25. The heat inside the earth is not all leftover thermal energy, the majority of it is actually nuclear isotopic decay due to the heavy metals that sank to the core when theia (the mars sized object that is believed to have created the moon and set our planet rotating in this direction) Effectively melted the earth causing heavy elements to sink. If your still reading this I wanna remind you that I rly did enjoy the video :)

  • All things considered, Mars probably isn't the best planet to colonize. Honestly a better choice might be a colony, floating on the super-dense clouds of Venus.

  • 7:51 boy, all of this energy and copper problem can easily be avoided by using a superconductor coil, as superconductors have no resistance it takes literally as good as no erengy to conduct an current as big as you like trough it. Only downfall of superconductors is that currently used superconductors must be cooled down to like -290°C but if i remembr corrctly, space is pretty cold and theres also simply no atmosphere to transport heat to the superconductorcoil.

    Krischna GabrielKrischna Gabriel3 tháng trước
    • You are wrong on am few things. Firstly your stated temperature is below absolute zero, therefore impossible. Secondly, light from the sun would heat up the coil. There is no atmosphere to scatter it. But your idea with superconductors could work if we find one that works in warmer conditions.

    Sebastian BurnsSebastian Burns3 tháng trước
  • All said, 200-500 years is not that long. Also, because fusion is ~~10 years away~~ (for the past 25 years) we could create much more energy for the coil. And I'm sure within the next 30 or so years, we will figure out how to (safely) separate C from CO². So maybe 150 years with tech advancements

  • I wish people would talk more about terraforming Venus, that makes 100X more sense. Mars is dead, Venus is very much alive and kicking, we just need to calm it down a little. And by a little I mean it's still insanely difficult but waaaaay easier then resurrecting a dead planet.

    reddsterreddster3 tháng trước
  • No... an electromagnet in space in the L4 point would not work. Why? Induction motors and Solar sails! What would happen if you bombard an electromagnetic field with energised particles (tiny magnets) and light? You turn the field into a magneto-solar sail, it's the way electrical motors work, the interaction of 2 em fields.

    • Sure, we just have to wait the 3.7 billion years for the Sun to become a red dwarf! At which point it would swallow the earth whole and burn it to ash, and since it's total energy output hasn't changed much Mars would receive the same amount of energy. Only a lot more of it would be in the form of ionizing radiation.
