Morgan: Why Mars?
Elon: Which sounds mad, I know that.
Morgan: No, it doesn’t sound mad; it just sounds difficult.
Elon: Yeah, very difficult.
Morgan: So, what is it about Mars that makes it even plausible?
Elon: Well, in Mars this is similar in a lot of ways to certainly one would call it a fixer-upper of a planet but it’s possible to establish life as we know it on Mars and if you, just if you were to warm Mars up, and then convert the carbon dioxide atmosphere to oxygen which plants do naturally then over time we could make Mars look a lot like Earth.
