Mars: It looks like Arizona or West Texas

So, if we’re going to get here and do all sorts of cool things, why not start off by dumping a bunch of this crap into the atmosphere, and warming that sucker up until it’s a touch more habitable? Air pressure when outdoors will always be an issue, but at least we could get it up to where a light-duty pressure suit and breather would make it do-able… get the temperatures high enough, and you could start to make things actually grow…

    Ah, good ol’ SF6. Wonderful compound, until UV light causes it to decompose and form F2 gas – which will eat right through just about anything. One of the most painful wounds you can suffer is fluoride induced. Fluorine will strongly react with calcium in the skin and body, and it will literally bore through your skin until it reaches bone, whereupon it forms Flourite (CaF2) crystals growing off your bones.

    My god I love chemistry.

    Still, I’d warm Mars with CH4 and CO2 – of which we have an abundance here. Why I’m generating both right now. 🙂

    That’s nasty. Okay, Methane it is. How can we ship the Senate to Mars?

    Alive or dead? Either way will work in my scientific and political opinion.
