Terraforming Mars is impossible. To do this, the red planet lacks carbon

About this dream of Elon Musk. About this dream in the aerospace Agency NASA. And Arnold Schwarzenegger has managed to do it (though only in the movie). But, is it possible really? We are talking about terraforming Mars – turning the red planet into a blue with the help of geoengineering, which will make its atmosphere more dense, and the environment and the climate more welcoming for people. Unfortunately, according to a new research article which was published in the journal Nature Astronomy, a fantastic dream that dreamed already not one generation of scientists seems destined to remain a dream. At least for the near future.

The idea of terraforming Mars involves the solution of several key tasks, but according to common sense, if they could release the carbon dioxide contained in the earth and filled them with the atmosphere for approximately 100 years, Mars could become quite a place suitable for supporting extraterrestrial life. Scientists say that they know how to heat the planet, because we do the same now with the Earth. However, according to a recent study, for Mars it sounds too good to be true.

“Our study shows that Mars remained insufficient inventory quantity of carbon dioxide required to start the greenhouse effect in the atmosphere,” says planetary scientist Bruce Jakosky of the University of Colorado in boulder.

“Moreover, much of the existing inventory of CO2 on the planet are not. We believe that terraforming Mars is impossible. At least using the current technology.”

In recent years scientists have repeatedly spoken about the prospects of terraforming Mars, but the study Jakosky and his colleagues Christopher Edwards from Northern Arizona University is based on data collected by various orbiting spacecraft, and not on computer models. The researchers used for their work information obtained by orbiters such as the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), Mars Odyssey, MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution — “Evolution of the atmosphere and the volatiles on Mars”).

Mars has a very thin atmosphere and as a consequence of the lack of atmospheric pressure. In General, this means that any stocks of liquid water on the surface of the planet for a long time will not stay there. The water is either completely evaporated or freeze. According to the idea of terraforming, if somehow the transfer is available in the polar caps of Mars carbon in a gaseous state (in the manner of the hero of Arnie from the movie “total Recall”), it would increase the atmospheric pressure on the red planet two times. But unlike those effects that were shown in the film, in reality, increasing atmospheric pressure on Mars is two times would not be sufficient in order to recreate terrestrial conditions.

Akowski notes that with increasing pressure on the planet’s surface to 1 bar and the temperature on Mars would be just above 0 degrees Celsius. The water would in this case not frozen, and the whole planet would really inhabited. The atmosphere itself is not fit for breathing, but people could wear a special breathing mask, not inside the fully enclosed suits. On the planet would have no problems growing plants, slowly increasing the level of oxygen in the atmosphere in the next few centuries. But while this is all a fairy tale.

“This does not mean that the terraforming in itself impossible. Just do it is not so easy, as many now present,” commented Jacoski the portal New Scientist.

“We can’t just go and blow up a few nukes over the ice caps of the planet and get what you want”.

On the planet there are also other sources of carbon. This element is present in soil and in mineral deposits, however, according to the calculations of researchers, Mars has an insufficient amount of natural resources in order to transform the planet’s atmosphere in moderate, humid greenhouse.

According to the latest assumptions, greater carbon stock can be located deep beneath the planet’s surface. However, scientists currently lack sufficient data set that could confirm this assumption. And even if we could confirm this, it is possible to reach these reserves, we still couldn’t.

“We guess that there is something there. Traces of carbon were detected in several impact craters on the planet. But we do not know exactly how much there carbon. Moreover, even in the case of large stocks, access to them is not possible”, — says Jakosky.

And yet scientists continue to hope. Researchers believe that if not in the coming years, for several decades, technological evolution, and the subsequent colonization of Mars will allow us to get to the level where implementation of plans for terraforming the red planet will be possible.

“We can still terraform Mars. We could create on the planet artificial sources of highly active greenhouse gases, such as chlorofluorocarbons. They would be able to heat the planet. But this will require a higher technology level than the one we have now. This goes much further than our current possibilities. If this is done, it is clearly not in the near future,” the researchers note.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
