Terraforming Mars, illustration. Crater Sharonov in Lunae Planum is filled with water, rivers around are forming a new surface. The planet Mars with oceans of liquid water following a future terraforming. This process, which involves changing the climate so it is more habitable, would be carried out to allow humans to colonize the planet. Mars is currently cold, dry, with no liquid water. This artwork could also represent the past, when the atmosphere was thicker and warmer, and it had liquid water on its surface.
