The game Surviving Mars lets us see what it would be like to manage living on the planet. Today Austin wanted to explore the ups and downs of terraforming Mars in real life. Could we ACTUALLY do it? Theorists, it's time to find out if Mars could be the next home of human civilization!

The video was pretty good, but I want to point out your mistake at 3:25. The heat inside the earth is not all leftover thermal energy, the majority of it is actually nuclear isotopic decay due to the heavy metals that sank to the core when theia (the mars sized object that is believed to have created the moon and set our planet rotating in this direction) Effectively melted the earth causing heavy elements to sink. If your still reading this I wanna remind you that I rly did enjoy the video :)

Looking back at this video, I’m curious: if you have the tech to launch comets and stuff at Mars, couldn’t you just fling much larger ones at the planet to relight its core? If it got hot enough, the core would relight and that would take care of the heat problem and the magnetic field problem. Also, maybe you could give Mars a moon much bigger than pathetically small Phobos and Deimos so the tidal forces could keep the planet warm for longer. Just a thought

This still isnt the most realistic game. Solar panels produce more energy than they should. Wind turbines should be USELESS untill you get the presure high enough but they work even at the start of the game.

I love how one of the reasons to leave Earth was the super volcano under Yellow stone but one of if not the biggest volcanoes in the solar system is on Mars.

All things considered, Mars probably isn't the best planet to colonize. Honestly a better choice might be a colony, floating on the super-dense clouds of Venus.

7:51 boy, all of this energy and copper problem can easily be avoided by using a superconductor coil, as superconductors have no resistance it takes literally as good as no erengy to conduct an current as big as you like trough it. Only downfall of superconductors is that currently used superconductors must be cooled down to like -290°C but if i remembr corrctly, space is pretty cold and theres also simply no atmosphere to transport heat to the superconductorcoil.
Atavy Måned siden
You are wrong on am few things. Firstly your stated temperature is below absolute zero, therefore impossible. Secondly, light from the sun would heat up the coil. There is no atmosphere to scatter it. But your idea with superconductors could work if we find one that works in warmer conditions.

Dylan Rivas Måned siden
All said, 200-500 years is not that long. Also, because fusion is ~~10 years away~~ (for the past 25 years) we could create much more energy for the coil. And I'm sure within the next 30 or so years, we will figure out how to (safely) separate C from CO². So maybe 150 years with tech advancements

I wish people would talk more about terraforming Venus, that makes 100X more sense. Mars is dead, Venus is very much alive and kicking, we just need to calm it down a little. And by a little I mean it's still insanely difficult but waaaaay easier then resurrecting a dead planet.

Why couldn't they use the solar wind to produce the power?
ihavecojones 2 måneder siden
No... an electromagnet in space in the L4 point would not work. Why? Induction motors and Solar sails! What would happen if you bombard an electromagnetic field with energised particles (tiny magnets) and light? You turn the field into a magneto-solar sail, it's the way electrical motors work, the interaction of 2 em fields.

If the sun is increasing in size so wouldn't it wouldn't it warm up the icecaps on Mars and melt them eventually . So then we would just introduce the fungi and cyanobacteria then.

Sure, we just have to wait the 3.7 billion years for the Sun to become a red dwarf! At which point it would swallow the earth whole and burn it to ash, and since it's total energy output hasn't changed much Mars would receive the same amount of energy. Only a lot more of it would be in the form of ionizing radiation.

If we build a dyson swarm that would make the magnet problem a lot easier to solve. We could just go ahead and beam 1% of the sun's total energy output into that magnet if we really want to.

I just bought this game a few days ago ... I was excited to play, and at first I was really happy with this game. I'm only a beginner, so here I was discovering ... And then, in my first part I came across the Wildfire in the middle of the game in easy mode, I HATE YOU PARADOX !!!! HOW CAN WE DO THIS, I LOST EVERYTHING !!! :'( When I see the numbers you have in the game, several billion income, several million resources, it discourages me !! It's already the 6th part that I do, all in easy mode and I can't do it !!!

How about nuking th core of the planet the chain reaction may put the two dipoles apart that exists in the southern region and even maybe mobilize the core if blasted in fix amount but may cause imbalance in solar system if by some mistake the entire planet blows up which I doubt as we just don't have that powerful nuke I guess.
