Good video. The ancient Mars that was *habitable* some 4 billion years ago - runs smack into the Faint Young Sun. The Sun, according to stellar evolution, is very different 4 billion years ago than the present, comfortable, warm, and stable Sun we enjoy today. Seldom in popular science reports do I see this addressed concerning the *habitable* Mars.

Don’t send humans to Mars. Human bodies don’t belong in space or on other planets and moons. The cost is prohibitive, there is nothing of value out there, and if the crew isn’t killed by a catastrophic mission failure, they will die from exposure to radiation outside the Earth’s protective magnetic field.
