Martian Temperature

Columbus Day - One of the major factors in the colonization of Mars is raising the temperature. It is essential to any kind of operation we may decide to undergo. Plant and animal life, atmosphere, and especially human habitation are all dependent on surface temperature. Right now, as I write this, the average Martian temperature is 210 degrees Kelvin. The Martian atmosphere has a small greenhouse effect that raises the temperature by 5 degrees K, much less than we see on Earth or Venus.
