The planet Mars is a red plant that is found in the Solar System in the Milky Way Galaxy one planets farther from the sun than Earth. The planet Mars has a very thin atmosphere full of primarily carbon dioxide. The surface of Mars is very dusty and rocky because
I could Mars in the distance and I was excited to see Mars I have only seen it in photos. Mars is the fourth planet form the sun. Mars is about 142 million miles away from the sun. Mars is 4,220 in diameter so it smaller than Earth. Mars also has two moons and most of the time -81 degrees F.
Mars Rover Mars is an interesting and mysterious planet. It is often referred to as the Red Planet. The Romans named Mars after the god of war. The rocks, soil, and sky all have a red hue on account of rust. Mars is the fourth planet from the sun at about
To compare, all three planets have secondary atmospheres that were produced by volcanoes. To contrast, Venus is too close to the Sun, and was too warm for liquid water to form and without liquid water; the CO2 could not settle out of the atmosphere and dissolve into the oceans. This caused Venus to suffer from runaway greenhouse effect and became hot with an extremely dense and vastly insulated atmosphere. Along with this, UV sunlight destroyed the H2O in the atmosphere. On the other hand, Earth had enough distance from the Sun for liquid water to form and precipitate out into the ocean while the CO2 in the atmosphere dissolved into the oceans and was removed from the atmosphere. The trace amounts of H2O and CO2 in the atmosphere create an insulating layer which is enough to keep the Earth at a mild temperature. Out of the three planets, Mars is the farthest from the Sun. It is possible that Mars had liquid water earlier in its history. The CO2 dissolved into water; however, Mars has less mass than Venus or the Earth. Because of Mars’ smaller mass, it has less tectonic activity and Volcanism stopped early in its formation. This did not allow the atmosphere to be renewed from CO2 or H2O
Mars is a rocky body about half the size of Earth. Like Earth, Mars experiences seasons because of the tilt of its rotational axis, so its distance to the sun changes, according to NASA (n.d.). Telescope observations show water-iced clouds, polar ice, and volcanoes. Mars has the largest Volcanic Mountain in the solar system, named the Olympus Mons and has two moons in its orbit.
Forrest Edward Mars Sr. was born in 1904 to Frank C Mars and Ethel G Kissack. Forrest first got his taste for the Mars company because his father made butter cream candy from their kitchen in the home in Tacoma, Washington. Frank expands his candy making to Minnesota and crafts what is called the Nougat House in which the candy then were called Patricia chocolates. From the Nougat house, the Milky Way candy bar is introduced and becomes an instant success, where full-time sales staff have to be hired. In 1929, the company becomes Mars Incorporated and Frank works hard enough to make the years amazing, with Forrest newly entering the business. Snickers are launched in 1930, while Forrest moves to the United Kingdom in hopes of working on his
How similar or different are Mars and Earth’s atmosphere? To start, Earth is mainly composed of nitrogen (78%), oxygen (21%) and argon (1%). Secondary compositions include the following: carbon dioxide, neon, helium, methane, krypton, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, xenon, ozone, iodine, carbon monoxide and ammonia (universetoday.com). On the other hand, the following is the composition of Mars atmosphere: Carbon dioxide (95.32%), Nitrogen (2.7%), Argon (1.6%), Oxygen (0.13%) and carbon monoxide (0.08%) (space.com). The atmosphere of Mars is cold and thin, making life exist difficult. To elaborate, liquid water currently can’t exist on any manner of surface on Mars (space.com). To continue, dust storms add to the pain of the thin atmosphere and make life even more difficult to not exist. These dust storms can completely cover the entire planet for whole months at a time (space.com). On the other side of the spectrum, it can even snow on Mars - making the north and south
Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System.
The Mars One Company, is scamming its supporters millions of dollars into a fake mission! The Mars One project has remained for awhile as a legitimate company, but experts and scammed donors have found majour flaws in the Mars One Mission. Many of the experts have found several errors and discrepancies when they more closely examined the Company. This in turn has led many to conclude that Mars One is not a legitimate space agency, and people should not be investing time, resources, and money into this untrustworthy company.
Physical characteristics of the Mars is half the diameter of the Earth, less dense than Earth. Mars' rotational period is similar to the Earth rotation. Another interesting facts about Mars is that, it has two Moons which are Deimos and Phobos. Deimos and Phobos are small and irregular shape. Also, Mars have largest volcano and second highest known mountain and largest canyon in the Solar System. Largest volcano and highest mountain is Olympus Mons, it has a height of 25 km and it is three times as tall as Mount Everest. Largest canyon is Valles Marineris is more than 4000 km long , 200 km wide, and up to 7 km deep. It is located along the equator of the Mars. Second interesting facts about the Mars except the similarities to the Earth, is the findings on the
The year is 1969. Richard M. Nixon’s first year as America’s 37th President has just begun; the Beatles have just released their iconic album and album cover, Abbey Road; most importantly, the Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., have taken the first step on the moon (“What” 1). Approximately 47 years ago when the world was beginning to modernize and spring to new heights, people’s interest for the place beyond Earth also emerged. This, then, prompted the U.S., amongst several other countries, to begin the race to space, marking the beginning of the long journey of space discoveries. Years later, with several environmentalists counting the days till Earth’s expiration day, it seems necessary that humans find an alternate

In the year 2020, NASA is sending a rover to the Red Planet, also known as Mars. The mission is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program which is a long term effort of robotic exploration of Mars. The goal of the mission is to find answers to some questions that
Mars is Better Than Venus Would you rather instantly be crushed, vaporized, and asphyxiated at the same time, or wear a spacesuit? Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and is 141.6 million miles away from it. It has two moons and they are called Phobos and Deimos. Venus is the second planet from the sun and is 67.24 million miles from it. Mars is better than Venus because it is more habitable.
Mars is the planet nearest to Earth that we are most likely to explore and send
