   About this theme  
 
  Terraforming is about changing a planet until it's close enough to Earth that humans can live on its surface.

The candidate most often brought forward is our neighbor Mars, to the point that some people promote this project as actually doable within the next decades! No small feat to change a planet's atmosphere, temperature, ground composition and dozen other factors, so that it can grow and sustain a biosphere.

Will the transformation of whole planets be another idea turned from fiction to reality as science progresses?
