Making a New Earth on Mars

The terraforming of Mars is the process by which man would transform the barren land of Mars into a new, Earth-like planet capable of sustaining life. According to Dr. McKay of the NASA Ames Research Center, this could become reality as early as 100 years from now. Artificial microorganisms created with the latest techniques in synthetic biology would be used to produce resources such as iron, energy, and food directly on the planet itself. This episode of COSMIC FRONT reveals the details of this megaproject by using images created based on the most up-to-date potential scenarios.
