Future life on Mars

Would you want to travel to Mars?


NASA are currently trying to make Mars habitable by sending up an extremely powerful magnet which will create a magnetosphere around Mars. This will slowly form an atmosphere around Mars, making the planet warmer and protecting it from solar radiation. It takes about 150-300 days to get to Mars from Earth depending on the speed of the transportation. Our history teacher, Mrs.Terry, says “I think I need to understand the science more. Films like Interstellar teach us that it is possible”.

Our receptionist Mrs.Emmett says “Nobody owns other planets so I don’t see why we can’t go there”. A physics teacher, Mrs.Hudson, told us “it sounds like a brilliant idea but without researching the science, I don’t know if it will work. I would definitely be interested in going”.

If NASA succeed, would you want to go to Mars?

Will our minerals run out?
