A New Way To Terra Form Mars?

[Media Source*]

(Red Colony) All we know is that Mars won’t retain its atmosphere in the long run, so we must take this into consideration[...] First, the sun on Mars must be blocked out so as to totally freeze its current air and all the air imported from comets.

This could be done with a large mirror that instead of directing more sunlight onto Mars, it reflected it away. Once Mars is an airless world coated with frozen gases, the towers must be built and the transparent roof constructed[...]

Once the ceiling is built, the sun is allowed to shine again and warm the frozen gases, creating an atmosphere and standing. Local biology does the same stuff as in terraforming, so everything progresses from here the same way.

This theory of how to terra form Mars may sound pretty far fetched, although with the red planet's lower gravity when compared to Earth's, this should not be too difficult of a feat to accomplish (after all, we seem to have the capability of build a space elevator). There is only one slight problem to this proposed solution for Terra forming Mars--what about the Martian hurricanes?

(Hubble Site) The Martian dust storm, larger by far than any seen on Earth, has raised a cloud of dust that has engulfed the entire planet for the past three months. As the Sun warms the airborne dust the upper atmospheric temperature has been raised by about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This abrupt onset of global warming in Mars' thin atmosphere is happening at the same time as the planet's surface has chilled precipitously under the constant dust shroud.

As astronomers and scientists race to establish a colony on Mars let alone terra form it they will have to take into consideration the weather patterns upon this world. Because of the low gravity, Mars will be an extremely hard planet to terra form as humanity first must raise the pressure upon this world, something the article notes will be difficult to achieve under current conditions.

If humanity is able to tame the red planet then it will be our first major victory in controlling the weather patterns upon another world, allowing us to not only reshape the planet but also the moons of Earth and some of the larger moons of Jupiter and Saturn. After all, what's the use at looking up at the heavens if one is not determined to visit the bodies that light our world?
