Opening Discussion Question:

For many years, scientists and politicians have wanted to colonize Mars. They have sent rovers to explore the surface of Mars, and have found traces of ice and microscopic organisms that confirms there was once life on Mars. Scientists believe that it would be possible to build a bio-dome on Mars to sustain human life, and grow plants in order to generate oxygen and create a livable environment over time.
