Default Humans Killed Mars?

Mars CO2: 953,200 ppm

Earth CO2: 400 ppm (was 15-200 times higher in past)

"Early Mars was a watery world, but as the planet's climate changed this water retreated below the surface to form pools and 'groundwater'," European Space Agency (ESA) researcher Francesco Salese said in a press release.

"We traced this water in our study, as its scale and role is a matter of debate," he continued, "and we found the first geological evidence of a planet-wide groundwater system on Mars."

Using data from a trio of instruments - the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) aboard the ESA's Mars Express spacecraft, NASA's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), and the Context Camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - the ESA researchers explored two dozen enclosed craters in Mars' northern hemisphere.

On the floors of these craters, the team found features that suggest the craters once contained "pools and flows of water that changed and receded over time".

They were even able to estimate past water levels and found they matched up with the expected shorelines of an ocean that many believe existed on Mars between three and four billion years ago - and which may have been connected to a system of subterranean lakes.

Not only that, there is no decent entertainment there either.

Unless in addition to a planet-wide ocean and subterranean lake system, there was an advance civilization capable of relocating underground at the water sources, especially when whatever obliterated much of the atmosphere and caused the surface to be uninhabitable. Perhaps within those underground caverns by thise lakes there’s a really great surf and turf and fish taco bar.

Mars was fomed around the same time as Earth, with a composition very similar to earth. There's little doubt Mars once had an abundance to water. But where did it go?

I believe that once Mars' core cool and it's volcanic activity stopped it's core cooled and solidified. This caused Mars to lose its magnetic field, which allowed the sun to bake off most of its atmosphere and hence water also.

This will eventually happen to Earth also, it's just taking longer because Earth is a good bit larger than Mars.

Maybe only fossilized? The Greenies likely killed them all to stop the consumption of hamburgers and such.

There used to be a great restaurant on Mars... but the new ownership killed it. Why you ask? No atmosphere.

You can track the daily temperatures at Elysium Planitia here...

Wednesday was a brisk high of 7 F with a low of -139 F. Average wind speed of 9.5 mph.

So who cleans those solar panels?

Everyday the wind gusts from 20 to 40 mph. I imagine that's enough to keep them clean.
The Opportunity Rover lasted for 15 years on solar power. A planet wide dust storm finally killed it off when it had reached the point where its batteries were too old to ride it out.

Humans Killed Mars?
Pretty sure there was an Ancient Aliens episode on this.

Serious.

I actually like that show. It's great entertainment. And just as scientific as most YouTube videos.

It's as credible as anything the MMGWM crowd puts out.

Well yes that is the current scientific explanation.

The food there is horrible. A simple blue algae smoothie costs 5,000 Weyland credits.

The ignorance of this comparison is beyond explanation.
