Bill Nye Says Mars Is Not The Place To Raise Your Kids

Bill Nye: We are not going to live on Mars, let alone turn it into Earth, USA Today

"Sorry, Elon Musk. Bill Nye says the idea of Mars colonization and terraforming - making a planet more Earth-like by modifying its atmosphere - is "science fiction." "This whole idea of terraforming Mars, as respectful as I can be, are you guys high?" Nye said in an interview with USA TODAY. "We can't even take care of this planet where we live, and we're perfectly suited for it, let alone another planet." The famous science educator and CEO of The Planetary Society appears on National Geographic Channel's series "MARS." While the series explores human beings living on the Red Planet and even mining it, that doesn't mean Nye buys into the idea."

Keith's note: If you are interested in the prospect of humans living on other worlds such as Mars it would seem that the Planetary Society is not the organization for you - and its not just Bill Nye who is openly hostile to the notion of humans living on Mars.
