Russian Scientist Gets Patent on Transfiguring Martian Atmosphere

Moscow (Sputnik) May 14, 2015


The inventor plans to use Martian dust storms as a natural mechanism for the reaction that will ultimately thicken and warm the atmosphere.

As the Earth's brainpower is focused on Mars exploration, a chemist privatized space engineering and is ready to make the Red Planet's atmosphere suitable for colonists. No jokes.

A Russian chemist received a patent on transforming the Martian atmosphere, newspaper Pravda Severa reported.

The thin Martian atmosphere and tremendous temperature differentials are hindrances to Mars settlements, Alexander Popov explained, after developing a method to use the greenhouse effect to make the Red Planet's atmosphere thicker and warmer.

The proposed method suggests "heating a mixture of clay minerals and table salt while a wind current containing mineral particles of carbonate dust" passes above. The following chemical reaction should release carbon dioxide gas which will accumulate and trigger the greenhouse effect.

The inventor plans to use Martian dust storms as a natural mechanism for the reaction that will ultimately thicken and warm the atmosphere.

The scientist said that his unique invention will take centuries to implement, but it should be tried in artificial conditions first.

Curiosity Sniffs Out History of Martian Atmosphere
Pasadena CA (JPL) Apr 02, 2015
NASA's Curiosity rover is using a new experiment to better understand the history of the Martian atmosphere by analyzing xenon. While NASA's Curiosity rover concluded its detailed examination of the rock layers of the "Pahrump Hills" in Gale Crater on Mars this winter, some members of the rover team were busy analyzing the Martian atmosphere for xenon, a heavy noble gas. Curiosity's Sample ... read more
