Apparently they didn't check the prior literature on the subject.
Planets also get energy from their start; they give off infrared energy to space; they get bombarded by cosmic radiation affecting chemistry; etc.
But there IS a real problem with terraforming Mars. It is not technology or volatiles. It is economics. How do we direct enough labor & material from our economy into the the engineering of an entire planet?...
So guess what...here we are discussing it. Mission accomplished, NASA, even if the article is wrong 😅
