You guys should read the book Trilogy-
Red Mars
Green Mars
Blue Mars

It's all about terraforming Mars until it becomes an Earth-like planet, and then in Blue Mars Earth and Mars have the first Interplanetary war. It's /really/ good.

well .... mars core is pretty much dead ( inactive ) so right there its a dead end ..
no active core = no magnetic field .... and are you sure about ice on mars? , i never heard of it ... even if we could melt that ice , it would pass strait from the solid state to the gaz state and escape into outa space . the magnetic field is not strong enough to keep a most of the vital elements trap on mars ....

well with the thecnologies we have at the moment its imposible to terraform mars ... but maybe one day it will be possible

When I was writing the description I forgot that it is dry Ice in the poles, though some research has found that there may be large quantities underneath it. Obviously this is all hypothetical and clearly it would be very difficult to create a sustained atmosphere.

then tilt it towards the sun- invent an artificial atmosphere for it.

It has a thick enough atmosphere to support life if it were at the same distance from the sun as earth, but as it stands, not enough heat reaches into the atmosphere to become trapped and so on.
Also, the ice at the poles is dry ice, meaning it's mainly CO2

Then all we have to do is push mars a little closer to the sun right? I mean how hard could it be right?

Moon is the closest body to earth. this means its easier to travel to than any other planets, and also to communicate with.
Scientists have recently found water on the moon, and It might be possible if we make air tight greenhouses, and with enough water you could create a planet which could support life.

They should send probes full of bacteria and **** that can live on Mars conditions and just see what happens

Did you know that the reason Mars is so dry at the moment is because its mass is too low to confine all its atmospheric molecules in its orbit? Back a few billion years and Mars had flowing water & air, but the solar wind managed to knock off each molecule from its atmosphere, lowering the pressure and making the water evaporate, leading to its current state. The only water that survived was the one already too frozen or too cold to evaporate.
