Description: An image lab from NASA created a video of what they believe, based on research, Mars looked like 4 Billion years ago. Could this be the future of Earth? In four billion years, will our planet resemble a cold, red wasteland?

A new animation by NASA Goddard’s Conceptual Image Lab shows that four billion years ago, Mars may have looked much more similar to Earth than the barren, desert-like Mars we know today. The animation is based on previous NASA findings of mineral presence and patterns inside craters that suggests there was once water flowing on our solar system neighbour. Watch Video
Questions for discussion:
1. Does virtualization like this make you think about the future of our planet?
2. Do you believe NASA’s Goddard’s Conceptual Image Lab to be correct about the history of Mars?
