Why haven't they sent oxygen to Mars yet and water?

Just deploy rockets with tons of water 💦 and oxygen

I don't see how the people living there manage without oxygen and water, it must be awful

They are many Ghosts of Murr in Mars.

Because it takes an incredible amount of energy just to send a little rover there.

Re: Why haven't they sent oxygen to Mars yet and water?

No. The more effective strategy would be to deploy rockets to the asteroid belt. We propel larger rocks into a collision trajectory in order to knock Mars into a closer orbit while also increasing its mass.

Beware the sound of one hand clapping.

Re: Why haven't they sent oxygen to Mars yet and water?

It wouldn't increase Mars's mass much. According to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroid_belt
The total mass of the asteroid belt is estimated to be 3% that of the Moon.
Since the moon's mass is only about 7.5% of that of Mars, a total asteroid invasion would have very little impact on Mars.

If the atmosphere problem could be solved and enough power could be harnassed to change its orbit, I would prefer terraforming Venus. Earth and Venus would make a cool double planet.

Q: Why haven't we sent oxygen to Mars?

A: Martians don't vote in earth's elections.

Yes

& No.

Would it increase mass? Not much. But as far as having little impact you are very wrong. See, it is all about speed. 16 grams is not a lot of weight. But if you take 16g of lead, turn it into a 44 magnum bullet you can really do something with it. Get the right asteroid/s moving fast enough in the right direction and you can knock Mars into the goldilocks zone. Not to mention that Mars is largely geologically and tectonically inactive. We can jump start that activity. Get the planet busy melting rock, creating water and atmosphere. It would be especially helpful to hit it with a couple of icy comets.

Moving Venus could also be done but it would be much harder. It would require a bigger rock moving faster because this time you'd be fighting the solar gravity. Also, where as you might eventually flush or convert the toxic elements of the martian surface it would be far more difficult to purify and extract the toxic chemicals from the venus atmosphere. You might be able to eventually set up a colony on mars but venus would likely only ever be an industrial planet. One mostly serviced by robot.
