  • Either way, once an initial supply of oxygen is available, and with a temperate climate, a thickened carbon dioxide atmosphere to supply pressure and greatly reduce the space radiation dose, and a good deal of water in circulation, plants that have been genetically engineered to tolerate Martian regoliths and to perform photosynthesis at high efficiency could be released together with their bacterial symbiotes.
