After finding liquid water on Mars, is possible transformation into a "second Earth" ? What scientists say - (1st part)

Six days have since passed mo, NASA announced the existence of liquid water on Mars.

leaving the whole world with an open "mouth" (although most suspicious knew for many years) and already xeinisei the first existence scenarios microbial life on the "Red Planet" which will automatically help geoengineering regeneration, by making the dream of all scientists, a second "Earth".
"This is Mars 225 million km. Away. Water in liquid form was not detected. We knew that there were chances since 1982. Now NASA says it has solved the mystery. These dark bands appear in the planet's surface when it is warmer in summer and fade when comes the cold and is caused by the movement of water, "says Tom Tsetair the SKY NEWS.
The water flowing on the surface of Mars is not like Earth's drinking water, the scientists explain, and is extremely salty, not much, or continuously flowing, but it could mean life, because the water simply means Life.
"It's too little. Just strips too salty water, which in itself does not support life, but could be the tip of the iceberg that is below the surface of Mars and that's exciting, "says Dr. Coach Andrew, head of Planetary Science at UCL University.
"This phenomenon of salty seas is not only here or there, but all over the planet. It is a generalized phenomenon. It means that there is a water table and as the Earth, ground water there is life there could be life and groundwater Mars "continues Dr. thereon. James Garvin of NASA
"Mars is not Earth, but here on Earth very resistant bacteria survive in extremely salty and cold environments like the Antarctic and extremely dry deserts of Chile."
The existence of water automatically mean that the planet can be inhabited and this for the following reasons:
I will not need the costly and difficult transport of water from Earth to Mars. Then the astronauts who will go there, will perform mission "suicide" because they can not go back to Earth. What does this mean; That will need to have plenty of water for as keep their extraterrestrial life.
The water used for cultivation of in special greenhouses for food production.
They can produce and fuels, as would break into oxygen and hydrogen. The hydrogen will be used as fuel and oxygen will enrich artificial "biospheres" raw "Arians" astronauts.
"Once Mars was a planet that closely resembled Earth. With warm salty waters, freshwater lakes. But something happened on Mars and missed the water, but there is still in the atmosphere and on its surface. Even, we have the following question: created life on Mars sometime? "Says Jim Green of NASA.
It is clear that for many years, perhaps for some centuries people will colonize Mars will live under artificial earth conditions and this because whoever found unprotected and spacesuit in the global natural environment has an ugly and painful death, as was done in amazing cinematic project "Total Recall" Paul Verchofen starring A.Svartzenegker based on also amazing novel by Philip K. Dick unique.
What you need to know prospective travelers is that the "Red Planet" is actually an icy planet.
The cold prevailing is unbearable, with an average temperature of -27 degrees Celsius and in summer the average temperature is -21 degrees Celsius. In winter, the temperature at the poles reaches -93 degrees Celsius. Such temperature has neither Antarctica!
The atmosphere of Mars is extremely thin, contains only 0.15% oxygen (compared to 21% which is the Earth), and most of it (96%) carbon dioxide.
Because of the thin atmosphere, huge amount of lethal radiation reaching the planet's surface, making the existence of life impossible.
Cultivation of plants in the surface of Mars would be impossible, since as heretofore known the way of the world lacks the necessary for life bacteria, so if this happens, it will happen only in the greenhouse.
Mars reaches only one third of the solar radiation that reaches the Earth. So it will be harder to charge the solar necessary for life on Mars equipment.
For life on Mars will need water, as announced by NASA, can exist on the planet, but it is not drinkable.
Man on Mars will face terrible sandstorms with wind speeds of 100 km per hour, which will last from a few days to a few weeks, by covering with sand almost all over the planet. In short resembles the scary planet Dune or otherwise Arakis, the masterpiece of Frank Herbert
It takes 12.5 seconds to reach the light rays from the Sun to Mars. So at best, it would take 25 minutes to get a signal from Mars to Earth. This means that for 25 minutes, and that was on Mars, the first people to him would have to cope on their own, and essentially will never have live communication with Earth, will apstellontai only snapshots and monologues.
Human bodies will suffer the planet Mars. Weighing 1/3 of that on Earth, the Martian residents will lose essential muscle mass, since it will require less effort to move.
Mars is a planet of our Solar System (H / C) as reported and It is the fourth planet in distance from the Sun (the second closest to the Earth), and seventh in size and mass of the H / S. It is also called "Red Planet" because of the color display and due to ferric oxide (Fe2O3) on the surface.
Surrounded by a thin atmosphere at an average pressure of less than one hundredth of the Earth, which only means that no human body suit just blasted.
The small size of Mars, implying little weight, did not allow him to keep the whole atmosphere. As the majority of the atmosphere escaped into space has the atmospheric pressure, and the liquid water is partially evaporated, and partially leaked to the subsoil and the planet's poles, in the form of ice. So Mars became a recluse and dry planet a thin atmosphere as we know it today. Mars is in this state for at least 500 million years. According to some indications, the "wet" period of Mars concerns only the initial part of the history of
The question is whether it can still acquire atmosphere and regenerate environmentally creating another green planet in the solar system.
The Margarita Marinova from Caltech, USA, investigates the possibility of life on Mars facility.
Early astronomers saw Mars and thought they saw a planet criss-crossed by irrigation canals and vegetation. One hundred years later, in 1964, the Mariner 4 spacecraft reached Mars. The disappointment for scientists must have been bitter, as they saw a barren world with no signs of vegetation, water or life. For these scientists, the idea of ​​a wet Mars covered by plants suddenly seemed like science fiction.
