Mars: Making the new Earth (aka Terraforming Mars)

The dream of turning Mars into a habitable world of trees, rivers and blue skies is now a subject of serious scientific investigation and a plausible future for the Red Planet. NASA scientist Chris McKay has spent 30 years exploring Mars and testing the limits of life in extreme environments on Earth. Award-winning writer/producer Mark Davis and legendary Mars animator Dan Maas join McKay in this first in-depth visualization of what it would take to turn a cold, dead planet into a living world.
