Exactly the disappointing truth. It can’t. Since Mars is too small, the core cooled down long ago and therefore the organized magnetosphere doesn’t exist. Put as much atmosphere you want and it will still be blown away and not protect us from dangerous rays from the sun. We can only “colonize” the same way we “colonized” the Moon or the International Space Station: staying indoors!
When I first started this blog I had no idea what I was going to write about. I still don't! It was my wife's idea, you see.
Seems I post about galaxies and space and stuff like that, even though I'm not a scientist. Also I'll write about Linux (my operating system), philosophical meanderings and once in a blue moon I'll express my views on politics.
Sometimes I just write about this and that, just like this!
