This may need moving to another forum, but I could not decide which would be most appropriate.
So, we may soon be in a position to populate Mars. Or at least set up outposts there.
Who will do this ?
Would it be one country with one religion and one way of viewing the Earth society ?
Those who follow the Wotsit-In-Chief's Twitter feed may already be aware of this. Either it's the cutting-edge scientific scoop of the century, or he's off his meds again.

First pictrure of earth from another Mars
A century after H.G. Wells wrote his novel about the invasion of the Earth by Martians, the first photograph of our planet as seen from Mars has been made. It is what Martians would see if they scrutinized the Earth.
The camera aboard...
Could NASA be starting to terraform Mars already behind our backs? When they terraform a planet, I imagine that it would take a long time (at least a few decades to thousands of years) -- does anyone else know how long it takes?
I read something else before that said that there wasn't enough...
Martian Ice Ocean
According to the BBC vast oceans of ice have been found just below the surface of Mars:
'Water-ice has been found in vast quantities just below the surface across great swathes of the planet Mars.
The finding by the American space agency Nasa is undoubtedly one of the...
I forget where I heard this from -- I think someone told me about it: That the U.S. Geological Survey has been looking for (and presumably found) oil on Mars. I think the person even said that they're moving to mine oil on Mars (?).
Has anyone else heard this, too, or am I dreaming it...
new dispute over Martian meteorite
it seems this bit of rock has a good press agent ;)
What would knowing that life had existed on Mars do to our understanding of science, of religion and of our place in the Universe? Answers on a postcard please...
what'll happen with Mars
I just know that when we sort mars out we will send all our criminals there.
150 years later when they have a tough but peaceful community everyone will wanna live there.

New Mars Probe
The probe oddysey approaches Mars orbit tonight. The last two have been lost (according to ABC), as have others.
It'd be interesting to keep track of this one's progress, especially in light of confusion over the moons and the reccent storms
I followed this link in FT's own Breaking News section to a site that poses this important (for Mars) question.
Check it out and let me know what you think. If somone is having trouble finding two closely orbiting moons...
