This all started with a tweet from Discover Magazine:
Elon responded saying that it *is* possible.
The media latched onto this as if this was Elon Musk fighting against all reputable scientists:
Does there still exist a journalist anywhere who tries to dig a little and find more to the story? They all seem to be happy to have a "catchy" headline - truthfulness be damned.

How about "New report says Mars cannot be terraformed, contradicting NASA planetary scientists"?
