So tell me Mr President, why should we Terraform Mars?
Well believe it or not, NASA has already landed on Mars.....well just big probes and robots to help get a head start on the transformation of mars.
On the poles Mars the robots have been heating up the ice. the ice is made up of CO2 so one melted it can create a green house effect and warm the planet enough to thaw any frozen water into lakes and streams. Also by increasing the CO2 levels we can strengthen Mars's atmosphere.
Also the robots have found a organism called Cyano bacteria which eat sunlight and make oxygen which we can breath OR combine with other combined with other oxygen atoms to make a ozone layer. Plus when the Cyano bacteria die they can in rich the solid for farming and planting.
Ill do what ever it takes for humanity to survive.
The people you are taking are mostly scientist and engineers, but there are actual US citizens that where randomly picked to colonize Mars.
Good man captain! lets start your training
Mr President. Plan A has Failed. The Nuke just did nothing.
OH GAWD. PLAN B!!

There is no plan B. We just say that to not cause panic. We were planing that the nuke will work.
