Terraforming

Autopoiesis is the goal of terraforming

There are numerous sites dedicated to terraforming, unfortunately, most are preoccupied with Mars. Very few sites move beyond logistics and 3D rendered graphics to realise one simple fact: Mars can't be terraformed. Not for a lack of technology, but a significant lack of gravity. This oversight has created a lot of misunderstanding about terraforming and its potential in future space exploration. It's important to understand the difference between terraforming and caeliforming. Caeliforming is the creation of an Earth-like atmosphere, while terraforming is the attempt to recreate Earth.
