"I propose that we will turn the universe into a garden."
Planet Earth is a blessed world. Rich with any kind of life, Mother Earth was also the cradle of the mind.
Of course nobody can eternally live in a cradle, as Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky said. Mars is not as rich as Earth. The Red Planet has only a very few number of native plants, as well as only 3 kind of animals. In generally, Mars is a dangerous world. Thin atmosphere, no ozone layer, weak magnetic field, weak gravity, too cold. No liquid water, no oxygen, no suitable ground for farms.
However, Mars is the land of the future. This is where the Resource-Based Economy take place, where everything is available for everybody, without money and other useless stuff. This is where the Cybernated Government take place, where quantum computers liberates the Sims from all kind of tyrannies.
The future belongs to Mars, but the Red Planet is still too dangerous. However an epic project is now under development. The project called "Eden Project" and it's all about terraforming, turning Mars into a new Earth. According to the calculations of the SimMartian scientists, this is how Mars may looks like into the distant future.
To terraform the planet Mars, we need plenty of water and a way to warm the Red Planet. Fortunately, we have both of them. Mars has plenty of water... frozen water, that's it. Sure Mars doesn't have as much water as Earth and Moon, but still in enough.
But unlike Moon and Earth, Mars hasn't water to waste. This is the reason of why SimMartians use mostly the nuclear fission power plants. After the nuclear catastrophes on Chernobyl (1986), Fukushima (2011) and New York (2049), nuclear fission plants banned from Earth and Moon. Mars however just can't survive yet without those plants. This picture shows the only nuclear fusion power plant on planet Mars.
The poles of Mars industrialized heavily, in order to melt and mine the water. For many years on Earth we have gold mining, silver mining, coal mining. Today we have water mining on Mars.
Thanks to nanotechnology, small melting devices warm and melt the water. Some of them turned the water into gas, in order to increase the atmospheric pressure.
In the 19th century, Gold Rush on Earth. In the 21st century, Water Rush on Mars.
Sometimes, nature helps the Eden Project. Meteorites strike the poles of Mars, crushing and melting the ice.
However water mines, nanowarmers and meteorites aren't enough. We need something bigger and faster. And here are coming the plans for the Prometheus, a space station that will heat the Martian poles by firing a powerful warming laser.
Of course with so many space stations orbiting around Mars and its moons, Prometheus will be peace of cake in construction.
And that about the native life of Mars?
All those plants and animals will die, but they'll not vanished. An new generations of those life forms in preparing in the laboratories, thanks to genetics and nanotechnology.
According to the calculations, Mars will transform into an second Earth somewhere in the late of the 22nd century. For now, Mars is a simple humble world, just like a caterpillar.
But everybody knows that caterpillars one day will transform into beautiful butterflies
