NYE WON’T HAVE A BAR OF LIV­ING ON MARS

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | STUFF -

We can for­get about colonis­ing and trans­form­ing Mars for hu­man set­tle­ment, at least ac­cord­ing to Bill Nye. The sci­ence com­men­ta­tor told USA To­day the idea of mak­ing the Red Planet more Earth-like is the stuff of “sci­ence fiction”. “This whole idea of ter­raform­ing Mars, as re­spect­ful as I can be, are you guys high?” Nye said. “We can’t even take care of this planet where we live, and we’re per­fectly suited for it, let alone an­other planet. “No­body’s gonna go set­tle on Mars to raise a fam­ily and have gen­er­a­tions of Mar­tians,” Nye ex­plained. “It’s not rea­son­able be­cause it’s so cold. And there is hardly any wa­ter. There’s ab­so­lutely no food, and the big thing, I just re­mind these guys, there’s noth­ing to breathe.”
