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."
