My latest story idea involves Mars...

There is a Mars terraforming (making an atmosphere on a planet the same as Earth) operation going on Mars, and the people working on the operation are getting some strange news feeds from Earth. The news networks are reporting that stars are vanishing in big groups and its happening all over the world. The last message from Earth that the terraforming operation gets is that the sun its self has vanished. But the thing is that on Mars, all the stars and the sun are still visible. So the terraforming operation send a team back to Earth to investigate the strange occurrence...

Mars can't be terraformed. Sure, it has lots of CO2 that "could" be converted into breathable oxygen, BUT there is no nitrogen. Our atmosphere is mostly Nitrogen, which is why we breath out almost as much as we breath in. Also, there will be no plant life because of, again, no Nitrogen.

Now, Venus, on the other hand is ripe for terraforming. All we would need to do is convert that CO2 into oxygen, which would, hopefully, reverse the extreme greenhouse effect happening there. But, if we can't do anything about the tiny amount of CO2 in our atmosphere, we have 0 hope of making a dent in Venus's !!!
