About the Show
Mars is a planet that's been freeze-dried and bathed in ultraviolet radiation for billions of years. The average temperature is 63C below zero. The carbon dioxide atmosphere is as thin as it would be on a mountain three times the height of Mount Everest, yet NASA scientist Chris McKay thinks humans may one day be living on a Mars with blue skies, oceans, rivers, and pine forests. Although that day may be hundreds of years in the future, if money were no object he believes we could do it now, with present day technology. Award winning writer/producer Mark Davis and legendary Mars animator Dan Maas collaborate with McKay on the first in-depth visualisation of what it would take to turn a cold, dead red planet into a green, living world.
