Question: If Earth were to be destroyed, which planet would be the best place for humans to live?  Why?  Give at least 2 suggestions on some adjustments to be made to make it more habitable for humans.

Answer: For me, it would be MARS since it has polar ice caps which could be used for water. However, Mars is too cold, has little oxygen and has no magnetic field to deflect UV rays. So Mars will have to undergo a process called “terraforming”. First, we will have to warm up Mars using either 2 ways: pollute it like what we are doing now (for greenhouse effect) or by redirecting the sun’s rays using giant mirrors. Mars will then be warmer and have liquid water. The next step is to plant trees and other vegetation to put more oxygen in its atmosphere. We could put animals and hopefully, Mars could become our second home/earth by then.
