If we had the science, Mars' solidified core could be reliquified, rotation started and that would generate a magnetic field.

Not any time soon though.

If we are able to do that, we probably don't need planets and would be at the Ancients' fiddling with entire races just cause stage.

True. Or we could go see if the Inhabitable Zone for the galaxy, heading coreward, is real or not.

Or a lack of minerals like iron, etc. means that the habitable zone ends before the galaxy edge.

Saw that on 'How the Universe Works' on Discovery Science channel.
