thanks for your wonderful theory, i just might use it to help me on my crazy science project where i have to build a civilization on Mars and produce food and other things needed to live. Very helpful for a high school freshman who knows nothing about this stuff. Smile

It would take millennium of years. Life exist because of molten gases take place. That's how it builds up the atmosphere. Not by fresh air of oxygen that only takes lesser than one million years. Because we lived in this era which our first civilization is only about ten thousand years ago, our logic is just like limited to the years of total civilization .

Radition is the killer of all life, atmosperic prssure, and seriously the lack of water coupled with the total lack of neutrients in the soil ;unless you totally live within caves on mars (or empty volcanic shafts) life remains impossible to support. The distance from the green of earth is far too great.If your going to support a colony on Mars you must first discover if you can acomplish thesame difficulties of a moon base. Use and perfection of a Space Elevator needs to be accomplished way before any real attempt at colonization can be accomplished.

How do you think Human lungs would react to Martian dust?

Oxygen by itself is a poison. We breathe in a mixed number of things. The composition of air is:
Composition of Air:
78.08% N2
20.95% O2
0.93% Ar
0.03% CO2
0.002% Ne
Plus trace amounts of Methane, Helium, Krypton, Hydrogen, Xenon

Reading comments about photosynthesis and terraforming. Interesting. One crucial question on the trees though that has not been addressed. Would the sun be adequate enough to allow the trees to do their photosyntesis thing? Remember, it is further away from Mars. If you will notice here on Earth, on days where the sun is up for a shorter period of time; this causes many of the plants to go dormant until the days are longer again. Just a thought.

Robert Zubrin on the Mars Society YouTube Channel says that a terraformed Mars would
hold onto its atmosphere for hundreds of millions of years and that it took 4 billion years
to deplete the mars atmosphere to what it is today!

People commenting on the OPs spelling are asses. English may not be his first language, he may be very young, or he may have a disability. Problem with the USA is that you are laughed at for even trying. Writing helps people better themselves. Constructive, positive feedback is one thing; berating him is another.

Hmm! Quite good. You are saying that everything will be oxygen, people will be also living there to produce carbon dioxide. So, I think there will be a constant balance. Laughing
