Article on Darwin - and terraforming!

I found this interesting article today. It talks about Charles Darwin's experience on Ascension Island, and how it relates to ideas about terraforming planets. Fascinating.

  1. That is fabulous! I wish I'd known about that island when I was in college. My roommate and I did projects on terraforming and colonizing Mars. This would have been a great jumping off point for expanding our research.
