Mars is the fourth planet is the solar system. It is positioned just next to earth and thus scientists and astronomers believe that there could be o possibility of life on this plant just as our planet. The evidences about the presence of water and oxygen on Mars have raised hopes about the probability of life on Mars.
If I get a chance to life on Mars
While the scientists keep sending spacecraft�s and rovers on Mars to conduct their research, I often dream about going to the plant to understand if there are any people living there and 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 really is. If I were on Mars, I would explore every bit of it to Learn about it. I would live at different places on the planet to experience the variation in climate. I really wish I could transform Mars into a place which is fit for human civilizations if isn�t already. I want 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 planets 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 ruining our planet, 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 made on Earth and avoid the same on Mars. We have almost destroyed our beautiful Earth.
