Did you hear Nasa wants to give Mars a Magnetic Shield to enable human colonization?

Since Mars lacks a protective atmosphere, it isn't habitable to humans. But in the interest of terraforming the Red Planet, scientists are looking at magnets.
Using a magnetic shield, scientists theorize they could recreate Mars' atmosphere and make conditions more hospitable for human life.
See link.

We've kind of talked about this, We wondered why Mars lost it's magnetosphere which allowed it's atmosphere to be stripped away by the solar winds. Magnetospheres are created by active planet cores.
I want to know what caused Mars' core to die.
I think we should answer that question before we try to recreate a magnetosphere.

A science fiction writer would find a way to jump start Mars' core. I wonder if that's possible in the real world.

I think aggression is in our genes, so we'll likely bring it with us, wherever we go..... At least for awhile yet, anyway.
In short, even if all the things that currently divide us were gone.... We'd find new ones.
We need to evolve a little more.

They are getting closer. If they could terraform Mars that would be wonderful.
I do not want a war over Maritain territory.
I prefer America only bring allies to Mars. I am not sure Europeans are true allies anymore. They are defending invaders over citizens and attacking us for putting America first.
