I was wondering if asteroids where bombed into the poles could they produce enough water vapour to suppress dust storms

custom made asteroids

I was wondering if ships were made of desirable elements for Mars infrastructure and were the cannibalized upon arrival .Would they need to be ferried by rockets to Mars or could designer asteroids be made to more economically sent to Mars without loosing to much to ablation and impact .

Mars before Earth

I think Mars suported life before earth... because it is further from the sun so it cooled before Earth. Allowing life to start there first. Lasted untill, who knows what mite have happened. Has speculation grows that advanced civilations may have existed here thousands of years before history teaches us...It makes some sense

Sample Return mission


I got thinking about the scientists working on the 2020 rover, your holding a test sample container and thinking, I may be holding this again after it's been on Mars, amazing ! I've always thought that the return spaceship would dock with a space station before eventually returning to earth, or is it set to come directly back to earth ? If it docks with a space station would the space capsule find it's way back to earth ?

Colors on Mars

www.youtube.com/watch?v=PL1j-sagalc

A youtube presentation from the Mars Society Convention that describes a plausible method for determining how colors on Mars would look to a human. Seems to conclude they would look the same as on Earth, except during a dust storm. (Even then they would look similar to during an intense dust storm on Earth.)

Many other interesting presentations. To see them, go to youtube and search "20th Mars Society Convention".

landslide in Shalbatana Vallis

Google Earth "Mars" has great detail at spot locations. Shalbatana Vallis is one of them. In this canyon, you can see several mud flows and one huge landslide that covers 66 square miles. The toe of this slide became a mud flow that ran for several miles across the canyon floor then up the opposing canyon wall.

Mars Surface Issues

mars-covered-in-toxic-chemicals-that-can-wipe-out-living-organisms-tests-reveal

A study that fosters a pessimistic view of whether life can survive on the surface of present-day Mars. However, I would like to have seen the study continued to see whether it is possible to selectively breed more resistant bacteria. Also this would not affect possible life underground or otherwise protected from the sun.

The silver lining here is that it may persuade the Planetary Protection officers to allow a probe to approach one of the RSLs.
