Out of all of our trips into outer space, the trips that we benefit from are the ones that we send probes to far out planets and asteroids. The trips when we keep sending probes to planet Mars to sample it's dusts and it's rock are quite less relevant here's why. When the sun sparked into life and used all of the matters around it to form life, it formed all of the planetary bodies in our solar system with the same materials that was there at the same. So were the planet Mars is our neibour in space terms it would have been asembled with the exact same materials as planet earth.
What we need to be focusing on is marsian colonialism. Doing things like sending solar probes to its oceans to defrost it's frozen oceans, with other probes roaming around it's frozen waters sprinkling vegetation seeds. Vegetation sprouts within 24 hours.
Which means not before long we could be looking at pictures of liquid water and wild vegetation on planets Mars. Water molecules steaming up to Mars's atmosphere 24 hours a day would quickly start to warm up the planet causing it's methane to defrost and rise back up and restart to retrap heat in the planet again, and with the ocean and vegetation bringing about oxygen, we could touch down on planet Mars without the need of oxygen masks.
Winds on all of the planets across the universe are formed by the planets moons. Here's how it works. Planets and moons are formed in the same way with a metal core that's magnetic. They both have a positive magnetic core. Two positive magnetic fields don't collide, instead they resist each other initially. If you place a positive magnet in a cup of water and swipe another positive magnet across the top without touching the water, you should see the water wave. This is how the earth's oceans get their waves which with the water wave's walls pushes oxygen around at high speed aka winds.
The only time two positive magnetic fields can collide is when one field's much bigger making it much stronger than the other.
Saturn and Jupiter, are labeled as gas giants, but this theory makes no sense once you begin to understand how planetary bodies are assembled by the sun at the beginning of a solar system. I don't know how a ball of dust and gas would fall into a gravitational dance with moons without a magnetic core, which in this case the core would have to be made out of metal, which is the only component that you can make a magnet out of.
When the Sun sparked into life, baring in mind that it spins, it started to drag matters in a tumbling pull around it where the magnetic core metal is the first component to be assembled. The separation of space from the ground by chemicals, is what makes from the bottom of the oceans to the tip of the atmosphere and everything else that's in within that in between space. Wild planets do calm down to the point where it's well enough for evolution to initiate it self.
A planet's distance from the Sun can play a major factor in that case.
