    Default Bill Nye: We are not going to live on Mars, let alone turn it into Earth

    Sorry, Elon Musk. Bill Nye says the idea of Mars colonization and terraforming – making a planet more Earth-like by modifying its atmosphere – is "science fiction."
    "This whole idea of terraforming Mars, as respectful as I can be, are you guys high?" Nye said in an interview with USA TODAY. "We can't even take care of this planet where we live, and we're perfectly suited for it, let alone another planet."
    As for living on Mars permanently: Sorry, Nye says that's not happening either. "People disagree with me on this, and the reason they disagree is because they're wrong," he quipped.

    And just how is all the food going to be grown on Mars, with Monsanto fertilizer in green houses. Organic green houses are even debated here on Earth due to not being biodynamic and regenerative. We can't even environmentally manage Earth, let alone Mars. http://www.spacesafetymagazine.com/s...mars/#comments

    I remember reading that NASA food scientists are actually working on this. Apparently, the soil on Mars is a lot like the volcanic soil in Hawaii. Scientists are trying to determine how to enrich volcanic rock soil so that it sustains food growth. The problem I see is with the temperature on Mars. It's much colder than Earth. That can't be conducive to growing food.
