TERRA NOVA (new earth)
Despite its small size, Mars has nearly as much land area as Earth. By melting the polar caps and seeding it with hardy plants, Mars could have a breathable atmosphere, making it a "new Earth".
The "Boreal Ocean" will cover the low-lying Northern hemisphere, while the volcanic plateau of Tharsis will remain high above sea level. Here a winged shuttle leaves a way-station on Phobos for a Martian spaceport.
