Question

Can we grow plants on Mars?

Answer

Yes, it is possible to grow plants on Mars with some modifications and challenges.

To clarify further, growing plants on Mars would require creating a controlled environment that mimics Earth's conditions such as providing adequate light, temperature control, and nutrients for plant growth. Additionally, protecting the plants from radiation and developing efficient methods of water extraction from Martian soil will be necessary. While these challenges exist, research continues into finding ways to make this goal achievable for future human settlement or exploration missions on Mars.
