Terraforming Mars a possible future

Although at first glance it might seem impossible, it's not. But it is extremely difficult. Terraforming Mars can be achieved using methods that we currently have or a more advanced version of what we have. Current problems on Mars is the shear cold and lack of oxygen and water, it is desolate and barren. Currently the ISS uses a form of radiation heat called Radioisotope Heat, its a contained radiation decay. More information here https://rps.nasa.gov/power-and-thermal- ... ater-unit/. Imagine this on a large scale using a more extreme form of radio active decay. For plant life to survive on Mars it would need to be heated up alot. around +70 degrees celsius. this is so that plant life can exist. Plants would thrive in this high carbon dioxide environment. Plant also require nutrients, UV rays and Water. UV rays are said to be spot on.Water would need to be created on the surface, probably from gases such as oxygen and hydrogen. Only trace levels exist. So they would need to be brought to the surface, i guess this is the hard part. If there was life on Mars many millions of years ago, this would mean beneath the surface fossil fuels would exist. If this exists they can be burned with metal oxide's in this no oxygen environment.
Maybe in the future, there will be a easy way to create these base elements.
