Is it possible for a planet, such as Mars, to develop a liveable atmosphere on its own? What would it take?

It’s too late for that. Mars maybe did have a “livable” or as you might say “Earth-like” atmosphere one time, long ago. That time is past. It would never again happen without human assistance. It’s why we still search to see if any microbes or life of any kind ever existed there. So far, nothing.

You must know from the other answers that there’s no air on the moon and plants need air to survive just like you do. Another... Continue Reading →
