Source: News.Discovery.Com http://tinyurl.com/am2tr2n Wed Jan 2, 2013 Blue, Not Red: Did Ancient Mars Look Like This? Analysis by Ian O'Neill It's hard to imagine what Mars might've looked like when its valleys were filled with water and its thick atmosphere sported white fluffy clouds. Now try to imagine what ancient Mars might look like with its own biosphere. Using elevation data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, software engineer Kevin Gill was inspired to create a virtual version of the red planet with a difference. "I had been doing similar models of Earth and have seen attempts by others of showing life on Mars, so I figured I'd give it a go," Gill told Discovery News. "It was a good way to learn about the planet, be creative and improve the software I was rendering it in." [More at site... thanks to Diana Cammack for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
