    One thought on “Terraforming: The Creating of Habitable Worlds

    1. Justin Walters

      A surprisingly deep and scientific look at what it would take to realistically terraform a world. Reads as more of a textbook than anything, but that's not all bad. At times it was hard to read, but never dull. Probably would only recommend it to people who are really interested in the subject though.

    2. Jesse Toldness

      It starts out a little slow but it's not a bad primer on the subject for those who have no background in it. A child's first guide on terraforming.
