Mars is a fourth planet in the solar system. It is positioned just next to the Earth and thus scientists and astronomers believe that there could be a possibility of life on this planet just as our water and oxygen on Mars have raise hopes about the probability of life on Mars.
While the scientists keep sending spacecrafts and rovers on Mars to conduct their research. I often dream about going to the planet to understand if there are any people living there and any people work there and also whether life is actually possible on this planet or not.
I wish I get some special powers to visit Mars and see how the planet real is I really wish I could transform Mars into a place which is fit for human civilization if it isn’t already. If I were on Mars, I would explore every bit of different places on the planet to experience the variation in climate. I was this planet to stay as pure as our Earth was during the beginning of the times.
If I ever got a chance to be on Mars and manage things there, I would grow several plants and make sure the people who eventually come to live on the planet lead a simple life like that of a villager devoid of the high-tech gadgets that are running on our Earth. I will ensure that there is no pollution on the planet and urge the people living there to contribute in keeping the atmosphere clean.
I want people to learn from the mistakes mode on Earth and avoid the same on Mars. We have almost destroy our beautiful Earth. I wish we do not do the same with the planet which is yet in its pure form.
