A few days ago I read an article from The Guardian on the newest findings about Mars. On Thursday, November 5th, NASA announced that Mars probably had atmosphere similar to Earth’s, but changed as a result of solar eruptions and “magnetic tendrils”. Scientists suggest that those solar blasts disrupted and damaged the planet’s magnetic field, leaving it unprotected from the harmful rays and causing drought.
Should we take this information as a “red light”? Yes, I think we should. Humans managed to damage Earth’s ozone layer enough already, but the findings on Mars might be more convincing. If we continue to destroy our planet, soon enough we might have the same fate as Mars.
