Caption: Map of a terraformed Mars. Cylindrical projection computer artwork of the surface of the planet Mars. Mars is shown with oceans of liquid water in the lowlands of the northern hemisphere, following a future terraforming. This process, which involves changing the climate so it is more habitable, would be carried out to allow humans to colonise the planet. Mars is currently a cold, desert world, with no liquid water. This map could also show the surface of Mars in the past, when its atmosphere was thicker and warmer, and it had liquid water on its surface. The two large flooded impact craters in the southern hemisphere are the Hellas Planitia (left) and the Argyre Planitia (right).
