The question that seems to have always been around is, where would we go when the Earth can no longer support us? It’s the unkown answer that the people fear because it is crazy to believe that we can just travel to another planet and live normally like we did on Earth. But there really isn’t nothing to fear because the answer is Mars. Mars is said to be the “Second Earth”. 

In recent years, scientists made incredible discoveries just one planet over from us. The red planet contains water which means there’s a possibility life can be grown. Scientists are now trying to research how to manipulate the ground and the atmosphere to make the possibility of life living on Earth high. We’ve been keeping an eye on Mars for many decades, even though we might not really understand how Mars really work, we can still predict on what it has to in stored for us.

Mars has always been seen as plan b. So why hesitate when the time comes? As sad as it is to think that Earth will die one day, we can always try and move on to build new lives on Mars. It can not let us down now. Mars has so much to offer. If it wasn’t an option, scientists wouldn’t have taken the research on Mars so seriously. Scientists make new discoveries everyday, and the future will not come until a very long time so there is time to progressively enhance Mars to be our second home.
