China, NASA and private space companies such as SpaceX are all trying to get people to Mars. NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin said the colonization of Mars is achievable by 2040, while tech billionaire Elon Musk is more ambitious and says he hopes to bring people to the Red Planet into the 1930s. Last year, SpaceX CEO said the mission could be completed in about ten years, maybe early, maybe nine years. "
However, Bill Nye, who became famous as Bill Nye The Science Guy, a popular American children's show in the 1990s, and is also a perfect scientist, has condemned the suggestions that people will ever live there.
Not only do people not live on the red planet, Mr. Nye says there's no chance of being terraformed to a more habitable place like Earth.
In an interview with the US President today, Nye, 62, said, "This whole idea of terasforming Mars, as honorable as mine, is you tall?
"We can not even take care of this planet where we live, and we are perfectly suited to it, let alone another planet.
"People disagree with me and the reason why they disagree is because they are wrong.
"It's not sensible because it's so cold, and there's almost no water.
"There is absolutely no food and a big deal, I remind these guys that they can not breathe."
However, Mr. Nye is a big fan of sending people to the Red Planet, but only as a temporary visit.
By placing humans on Mars, they will be able to properly explore the Red Planet and significantly increase the chances of finding life.
He went on, "We should send people there to discover them, to explore it's a great idea.
"If we find evidence of life on Mars, it would change the evolution of human history."
However, SpaceX's CEO, Mr. Musk, believes Mars can be terraformed, making it suitable for people.
He said that at the beginning of this year, one way to do that is to release the thermonuclear bombs on the planet's poles – where most of the CO2 planet is then released into the atmosphere, which would amplify it, keeping Mars warm enough to keep the liquid water as well as greenhouse gases on Earth.
