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

The magnetic field is part of the equation in a big way.
Without a strong field to protect it, the atmosphere can be stripped away by solar winds.

If you'd like two awesome books that include terraforming Mars. They are called Spin and Axis

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.

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

Actually, the planets gravity is so small that the atmosphere has pretty much evaporated in to space, because its like 60% the size of earth. Distance from the sun has nothing to do with it. Even then, on Earth, helium and hydrogen are so light that they float up to the upper atmosphere and are blown in to space by solar wind....

Yes, but it isn't helium an hydrogen that account for us having an atmosphere that keeps us at a stable temperature, it is the fact that we are 80% nitrogen, 19% oxygen 1% assorted gases. With a layer of greenhouse gases laying over top.

My point is that mars is too light to hold an atmosphere that isn't molecular carbon because nitrogen and oxygen are too light in their natural form.

or just give it a more greenhousish atmosphere. if we didn't have ours, we would freeze to death. obviously we don't have the technology yet to make an atmosphere....YET!

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.

You can create an atmosphere, using the greenhouse to control the air, temperature, pressure etc.

bacteria wouldnt change anything then unless you sent an ecosystem for it to survive off of, even then it would thrive to crittical levels, a hostile bacteria would make the planet almost impossible to live on

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.
