Poisons on Mars

One of the issue of living on Mars is there are poisons all around Mars. One type of poisons in Mars is the poison from the dust of the Mars surface. The dust are not suitable for humans and it is called the dry iron oxide dust. This type of dust can be found on the rust of an old car. If humans breath in the dust, it may cause suffocation. The other type of poison on Mars is the carbon dioxide. In Mars, they don’t have oxygen like how we have it here on Earth. Humans can’t survive on Mars because of the carbon dioxide produced. The air here on Earth is oxygen which is the one us humans breath in.

One way for a human to live on Mars is to wear space suit. The space suit may produce some oxygen for humans and that can keep them stay alive. Space suit may be a good option for humans if they want to live on Mars. Another solution for humans to live on Mars is to maybe have a lot of plants planted on Mars. Since the air on Mars is carbon dioxide, plants could survive up there. Plants needs carbon dioxide to stay alive and by using carbon dioxide plants can go through the process of photosynthesize. Photosynthesize is the process where plants make their own food. It is when plants uses solar to make glucose. It is also when plants uses carbon dioxide and water to make oxygen for us human to breath. On Earth, plants receive carbon dioxide from the air that humans breath out. That way we can live on Mars and maybe have a second possible place for human to live in.

Between those two solution, I think the one that could be the best for us is to plant a lot of plants that could maybe survive the extreme Mars weather or maybe plants that could survive any of the Mars situations. The reason why I think that this is the best solution is because I think this way, we could make Mars more like earth with more plants. I think that this could help with the environmental issue because now on earth, there are problems where people are cutting down too much trees to make new and improved architecture. Maybe if we plant more plants on Mars people would think twice that we need to take care of the lovely Earth nature. That way humans will stop cutting down trees and save our lovely Earth ecosystem.

In conclusion, I think that in order for us human to live up on Mars is to plant a lot of plants that could survive the extreme Mars weather.
