“I think humans will reach Mars, and I would like to see it happen in my lifetime” was said by Buzz Aldrin, a NASA astronaut. The former American aeronaut from Montclair, New Jersey believes that since Mars does exist, it is waiting to be reached by humans. When this would happen, he says that the human race would “evolve into a two-planet species.” Present day Mars has a lot of canyons, mountains and volcanoes. Even though the surface is Mars is very old, scientists learned about different younger rift valleys, plains, hills and ridges. According to recent reports, there were lakes and rivers, along with an ocean billions of years ago. The low temperatures on the planet cause there to be polar ice caps and frozen water present.…show more content…
This is the biggest orbiter sent into the atmosphere and is capable of doing a lot more than other orbiters. Furthermore, cameras from space crafts show chances of seasons changing on the planet and the variations in rocks and dirt. These cameras have not shown any creatures around, though. In the future, probes will be underneath the surface to find anything below the ground. Experiments were designed to discover tiny things living in the soil, for example bacteria. Due to evidence from experiments, scientists are realizing that life could have been present and there is a chance of humans from Earth surviving on the planet now. The fourth planet from the Sun, which may have been a wet planet, has several distinctive features that have scientists thinking about a chance of surviving on the planet. The surface temperature on Mars is averaging a high of thirty two degrees Fahrenheit (zero degrees Celsius) and a low of negative ninety four degrees Fahrenheit, which is negative seventy degrees Celsius. In July 1996, Dr. David McKay and a team of scientists at the Johnson Space Center discovered fossils of bacteria in a meteorite, ALH84001 that came from Mars. It was found in Allen Hills, Antarctica in 1984, after 12,000 years of being on the surface of Earth. The observed spheres are what are said to be the fossilized bacteria. Organic compounds were found as well, but it turned out to be
