Mars Made Home!

..... Mars can be made habitable for human civilization. Imagine the planet transformed from what it is now to a beautiful world covered by a profoundly deep ocean. I would call it, Oceania.

..... How you say? This is how, I say: humanity would use a fleet of remote control drones to harvest from interplanetary ice the masses, notably those about Saturn. These would have their orbits destabilized into trajectories that intersecting with Mars. This process would eventually, provide it with an ocean of some 4,000 miles deep. This will increase its mass, thicken its atmosphere, and in so doing, warm the planet. Its gravitational gradient will be more similar to Earths and there would be no shortage of food. Floating cities would be the means of surviving on the surface.

..... An alternative to this method could be to secure a comet or one of the ice bodies in the Oort Cloud. These could be directed to intersect "gently" with Mars. This would be the "Kissing Mars" variant of this project.

..... The drones would be powered by solar panels. The drones would take in ice from the masses they are going to redirect and by liquefying the water and then boiling it, they would generate the thrust needed to nudge the masses toward Mars. The sun would be the ultimate power source but the ice, the water, and steam will be the "muscle" as it were.

..... Using smaller asteroids in a like fashion could build up the planet as well. However, in this case and perhaps with the ice masses as well, they would be exploded before they entered the Martian atmosphere. This would prevent explosive repercussions.

..... The gravitational pull of the planet will increase and the atmosphere will become more dense and the planet will warm allowing easy colonization of a planet which would be much more similar to Earth in terms of gravity and atmospheric condition.

 

But why?

..... This project would be of such scope as to provide many hundreds of thousands with life long career work. It would also provide a unifying purpose for many industries and technological fields. It would provide a reason for humanity to work together for a common good. It would provide humanity with a second chance. All the technological aspects of this plan are within our scope. These are the reasons why this idea is being introduced.

..... I am intent upon problem solving and, in association with Creative Ideas Consulting of San Francisco, I am embarking on another means of affecting the warp and woof of our social fabric so as to promote a healthy change in the evolution of the human civilization or community on Earth.
