Don't miss to watch Mars tonight - it will brightest in 15 years

The basic idea behind making Mars habitable, also known as "terraforming", is to release enough of the carbon dioxide trapped in the planet's surface to thicken the atmosphere, heating up the planet enough to keep water in a liquid state.

The ancient atmosphere of Mars once likely made the planet a vibrant world of flowing water, but that thick air has been stripped away. The most available source is Carbon dioxide in the polar ice tops; which could be vaporized by using a melting accelerant dust or even high-powered explosives. KSSTM is planning viewing parties over the next five evenings using some of its more powerful telescopes so that the public can have "close contacts" with earth's neighbour, which, in fact, is quite a familiar planet thanks to the "Mangalyaan" programme of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Although now gas shell of Mars consists mainly of carbon dioxide, it is too thin, on the surface of the planet could exist with liquid water.

It's a little brighter, not only because it happens to be closer, but Mars is also at its "opposition" - directly opposite the sun as seen from Earth.

The most striking features on Mars' surface on these days will be the brilliant white polar cap and a dust storm.

"There's a massive amount of Carbon dioxide on Mars adsorbed into soil that'd be released upon heating". The observatory building will be closed during the event, but exterior restrooms will be available. Just using the deposits near the surface would require extensive strip mining, and going after all the Carbon dioxide attached to dust particles would require strip mining the entire planet to a depth of around 100 yards.

That would change if we could increase the pressure and temperature on Mars.

In a report via SkyNews, NASA has said that based on the current technological levels we have, sustaining human life on Mars is simply impossible. In brief, getting water and an atmosphere. OPAL is helping scientists understand the atmospheric dynamics and evolution of our solar system's gas giant planets.

These side-by-side images of Mars, taken roughly two years apart, show very different views of the same hemisphere of Mars.

"As a result, terraforming Mars is not possible using present-day technology".
