Regions of Mars could be made habitable with a material silica aerogel that mimics Earth's atmospheric greenhouse effect, according to a study by NASA and Harvard researchers. People have long dreamed of re shaping the Martian climate to make it livable for humans. Carl Sagan was the first outside of the realm of science fiction to propose terraforming. In a 1971 paper, Sagan suggested that vapourising the northern polar ice caps would yield atmosphere over the planet, higher global temperatures through the greenhouse effect, and a greatly increased likelihood of liquid water.Now, researchers from the Harvard University and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in the US, have shown that a two to three centimeter thick shield of silica aerogel could transmit enough visible light for photosynthesis, and block hazardous ultraviolet radiation. Doing so will also raise temperatures underneath permanently above the melting point of water, all without the need for any internal heat source, according to the study published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
