In order to build restaurants and domes on the Moon, the Astronauts and Engineers would have to imbed a Superconducting Magnet into the mantle to generate a "global" magnetic field. Fischer Tropsch reactors wil be necessary to synthesize propane/butane/gasoline, while Fuel Cells can provide electricity and water (they're installed in space shuttles). Engineering firms such as Raytheon, Dresser Eng., Haldor Topsoe can build Fischer Tropsch reactors. Methane gas from bathrooms would serve as the stranded gas for these reactors. Remember, the Earth's MAGNETIC FIELD deflects COSMIC rays, while our ATMOSPHERE blocks out uv, gamma and x-rays. The geodynamo in the core of the Earth generates its magnetic field. The outer core consists of molten iron/nickel/cobalt, and the inner core is solid iron due to the immense pressures at the very center of the Earth. Radioactive Cobalt 60 or Thorium is also thought to be present. A magnetic field also protects any water from being photo-dissociated by solar uv. An atmosphere will also have to be grown. Cultivating an atmosphere will literally be--a piece of cake. All we would have to do is COOK with hydrocarbon fuels, such as butane or propane; EAT til we drop, and be ACTIVE. That's because water vapor, CO2 and methane gas are the primary byproducts of Combustion, Respiration and Metabolism. Pretty soon, it'll be flooding on the Moon and on Mars. Build a Fischer Tropsch reactor to synthesize Propane and Butane. Burning the propane/butane yields an invisibile gas (water vapor), which can then be condensed into droplets using Dehumidifiers, some of which can produce 60 pints of water. Combustion: Propane C3H8 + 5 O2 --> 3 CO2 + 4 H2O Aerobic Respiration: C6H12O6 + 6 oxygen --> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + ATP (energy) With the exception of Mars, we will probably use liquid cryogens to create atmospheric pressure on all of the Moons since liquid cryogens expand rapidly once they warm up--the expansion ratio of LOX (liquid oxygen) for example, is 861:1 at 68 °F (20 °C). And, one litre of Liquid Nitrogen will expand to approximately 700 litres of nitrogen gas at STP. [1] This process must take place at least a year in advance, since all sorts of atmospheric phenomena (violent thunder, lightning, hail, etc.) will occur before it settles down into a viable atmosphere suitable for living creatures. I envision some robotic device (similar to the Rovers) dropping these canisters onto the Moon. The International Space Development Conference (ISDC) is an annual conference where business plans are submitted for funding.

I wondered about this in 8th grade without knowing of Chariot of the Gods. After years of fascination with outer space, I started to wonder why Mars looked like a planet that had undergone devastation. Rubble, and no visual trace of water despite ther being polar ice caps! It seemed to me this planet may have been inhabitable at one time. The fact that Mars is known as the god of war also led me to believe that some kind of war may have been responsible for the destruction of Mars. I continued to wonder what type of beings would have lived there. Being us whites burn in the sun here on earth and darker folks don't, it was obvious a lighter toned race would have lived there. I then wondered if it was possible the white race, which only inhabited the Eurasian continent at one time, may have settled there after an exodus from mars. It's also made sense to me that since Mars was further from the sun and this colder, the comforts of the warm sun and ample vegetation enjoyed by the natives of earth, would have been less. Summers would have been shorter as well as the agricultural season, and winters longer. These stimuli would have pushed the Martian brain to find more advanced means of survival beyond those here on Earth. Hence, why white Europeans, in general, were most advanced technologically over other regions of earth. This, in conjunction with their history, may very well explain the reason for their need to conquer other regions of earth and introduce their "modern" advances to the natives who never had a need for them. I also had theories as to why the super advanced technology that led them here didn't remain in their culture. Perhaps a lack of immediate resources or means to aquire them led to some developments being lost or forgotten generation after generation. As they multiplied, the history may have been held by a few yet forgotten by others not so tight in the ruling circle. Despite forgotten skills, the Martian brain was still advanced in problem solving and resulted in the development of advanced means of survival especially in colder regions. Then began the questions of Egyptians, Mayans, Etc. Well, years later, a HS history teacher introduced me to the book Chariot of the Gods after hearing my theories. This book made me see there was some logic to my logic and presents an excellent case. It has, to some degree, answered some questions I've had, questions that truly have no definitive answer, FOR TRULY WE CAN ONLY THEORIZE, these ideas are not concrete fact. Watch a show called Ancient Aliens. It's great fun to wonder about the unknown.

Did mars once support life? Was there extensive vegetation and the correct geological conditions to allow for the creation and entrapment of fossil fuels? I can't remeber that ever being reported. So as far as most scientists wil concurr, Mars doesn't have any fossil fuels.

do no longer understand yet i think of it particularly unlikely. interest's pastime is to make certain if there have been as quickly as situations effective for all times. If there was life on Mars in the previous it bacame a ineffective international there would perhaps be some fossil fuels on Mars.

1. There are so many unanswered questions about Mars that your running before you've learned to crawl talking about fossil fuels 2. We can't even eliminate enough risks to visit Mars let alone go oil drilling etc 3. It would cost a fraction of the cost to retrieve FF off Mars to invest in Bio Fuels or Nuclear power etc

By chance, this question had already occurred to me. And I was practically sure there couldn't be any fossil fuels because they are the product of the decomposition of plants in certain geologic conditions for millions of years. However, I assume that the chances of the planets' subsoil having precious metals are higher, but I disagree with Paula. I'm almost sure it would be so expensive to explore them, that it would never be viable to carry this out (unless perhaps if in a very distant future, Mars acquires better livable conditions...)
