It will be interesting a long way into the future when our sun when it goes red giant if it will warm up Mars enought for life. Probably will still be tough since it is so small and has such a weak gravity well.. also no magnetc field to protect said life..

When our sun goes red giant the place to be will be Titan and Pluto now that we know Pluto has frozen mountains of ice and a super thick atmosphere..Mars.. I think what happened there was the core slowed down and weakened the shield which allowed the solar winds to blow it's atmosphere away, I think the same thing will ultimately occur here has well long before the sun goes red.
