Let's collab again sometime 😉 Andrea Diversity July 27, 2019 at 2:00 am Reply For a second i thought it was doom Michael Walton July 27, 2019 at 4:48 am Reply 25 hours a day????? Nate July 27, 2019 at 7:57 pm Reply Hi Austin, I advise reading the Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson if you are indeed interested in it, obvs its an older book based off of slightly older science knowledge, but it most certainly is interesting non-the-lessbtw, enjoy your day Leafiafan July 28, 2019 at 12:54 am Reply >running nuclear reactors 25 hours a day. Okay, not even Mars has that many hours in a day. lol Red July 28, 2019 at 4:30 pm Reply You should work together with Elon Musk Leafiafan July 28, 2019 at 6:56 pm Reply Speaking of science fiction games, I'd love to see Austin do a video on Rimworld's eclipses and how ridiculously long they last. I am very curious about the science behind 8+ hour eclipses. Jackeris130 /Phoenix Productions July 28, 2019 at 7:05 pm Reply Does anyone know the last song? It sounds really cool Ssj Bread July 31, 2019 at 3:51 pm Reply You're a little wrong there. Terraforming isn't complicated. Terraforming to support life, on the other hand… B Caron July 31, 2019 at 8:24 pm Reply If a satellite can create an earth sized magnetic field. Why not build two of them the same size and put them on Mars. That seems more efficient and safer (minimizing risk of asteroid impacts or other space debris and less chance to run out of power.) I know it was mentioned it just seems like a satellite would be a moot point luka sureta July 31, 2019 at 9:11 pm Reply This is the first Mars Terra forming video I loughed my peach of rougegamer July 31, 2019 at 10:52 pm Reply raising the temp. ? humans are great at that!

Hando Craap August 1, 2019 at 9:33 pm Reply Datz sum funny craap. Great Video also. Patrick Hughes August 2, 2019 at 1:44 am Reply This is why I tell people not to listen to people saying “oh we’ll just colonize Mars if we can’t save the Earth” that idea is predicated on the best case scenario of a best case scenario. The entire idea falls to pieces if even one step of the process doesn’t go perfectly to plan. רז עמרן August 3, 2019 at 6:51 am Reply hey hey hey you cant finish a letter you didnt start EpicKillerOtis Heselden August 3, 2019 at 9:22 am Reply F Kuweiyo August 6, 2019 at 2:24 pm Reply F Yo Bro August 6, 2019 at 7:55 pm Reply F Rhys Aqs August 7, 2019 at 2:56 am Reply this game looks sick SAVAGE pikachan August 8, 2019 at 5:25 am Reply NASA is taking notes Solidwater Slayer August 8, 2019 at 3:15 pm Reply what about increasing the gravity?

I honestly believe we will create solutions to all these issues because we will literally need to soon. Andrew Lester August 11, 2019 at 1:45 am Reply Austin, This is one of my favorite videos you've done. Just the whole science behind something as cool as possible terraforming another planet. If you haven't read the book "The Martian" I highly recommend it, it's not about terraforming but a guys struggle to live on Mars for several years, and the auther went to great lengths to make sure his science was as accurate as possible Charles Weber August 11, 2019 at 4:11 am Reply i play the game, and i just accidentally caused events that lead to, basically, a nuclear fallout.

Hey Austin try the game Frost punk and figure the science out from that game. Matpak you should check it out too might make a good game theory. evil 2theend August 14, 2019 at 5:10 pm Reply Why don’t you just say force field (joke) Basti Pasia August 16, 2019 at 11:40 am Reply The opening skit is hilarious Dot Talks August 17, 2019 at 1:10 am Reply It's quite sad that most of us won't be able to experience the Mars terraforming. In spite of it, it is our duty to get our descendence the tools to expand.

Rowena Lupin August 21, 2019 at 10:06 pm Reply 6:14 Since Austin didn't have the time, here's a link to the wikipedia page: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrangian_point Big Dumb August 22, 2019 at 5:08 pm Reply Im not sure you got the math correct on the diameter of the coil, 1m = 1000mm = 187 years and 10cm = 100mm = 18.7 years because youve only decreased the diameter 10 times, not 100 times needed for 1.87 ( approx 2 ) years Trollface Asian August 24, 2019 at 4:44 am Reply Humans: Strategies about terraforming a entirely uncolonized planet.Also Humans: Destroys a naturally habitable planet. interstellar _hd August 24, 2019 at 6:18 pm Reply Why dont we use a Thorium reactor?And Test Thorium boombs on the Mars? Robert Lee August 24, 2019 at 7:41 pm Reply 10:15 Yup…magnetism is still relatively an unknown to science. So until that time, the best we can do is to live in bio-spheres, on Mars. 10:50 You want "us" to impact the atmosphere of another planet? Have you forgotten what made us leave earth in the first place? 13:50 No one said anything about the red hat? 16:20 Importing anything from earth to cause a change in the atmosphere of another planet will generate the same effect as inviting a foreign fish into a lake/river, and we have seen that it isn't what we wanted to happen. 17:30 Hundreds of thousands of years?…time to invent the Genesis Torpedo. Will Deschane August 24, 2019 at 8:12 pm Reply My colony won’t eat Geometricly Epic August 25, 2019 at 10:00 pm Reply I honestly think Venus would be a better idea to terraform overall; however, it would be extremely difficult Faze_Old August 26, 2019 at 6:58 am Reply We’re the hell is mat pat Umbra Jord August 27, 2019 at 6:23 pm Reply …. wouldnt the thinner wire for the super magnet increase resistance which will increase heat and limit amperage due to said resistance, making it actually impossible to push more current through the magnets? nevermind that…. wouldnt it also get insanely hot (further increasing resistance and limiting current) and quite possibly destroy itself? THATASSASSIN 996 August 29, 2019 at 2:48 am Reply Nuke Mars Steven Wilson August 29, 2019 at 12:17 pm Reply NASA did a recent study and concluded that Mars doesn't have enough material to make enough greenhouse gases to raise the temperature significantly enough to terraform it. https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/goddard/2018/mars-terraforming but we can still do in SM:GP and who knows what we might be able to do in the future. nathan kerr August 30, 2019 at 2:09 pm Reply Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but is the background music playing at and around 14:30 an instrumental version of Rhapsody of Fire’s “the wizard’s last rhymes”? I doubt it is, but it’s the first thing that popped into my mind when I was watching this video and heard it Chintan Poonia September 1, 2019 at 9:17 am Reply You said 25 hours a day! 😂😂😂😂🤣 DdYx September 1, 2019 at 11:43 pm Reply The time in the background is the actually time of the video Shabazza84 September 4, 2019 at 6:47 pm Reply Better find another planet with a "decent" biosphere with less stuff to worry about…We are more likely to be able to travel interstellar, than to terraform in such a large scale until we need it, I guess.
