Mars, The New planet for Life

By Ryan Goodman

Mars, a place of new beginnings

Mars is practically the only place in the universe besides Earth that can be colonized and inhabited by Human beings. All that's ever roaming on Mars are androids doing endless calculations and explorations. How would it feel to be the first human being to step on Mars, to experience the same feelings that Neil Armstrong had when he first landed on the moon and took a small step for mankind and a giant leap for humanity. Even though Mars is the 4th planet away from the sun it has vast potential to colonized. Come join the blood red planet!

Mars is like Earth's cousin

For example, it Takes Earth 365 days to complete a rotation around the sun while takes Mars 687 Earth days! That means Mars has longer seasons. It also takes Mars 24 hours and 37 minutes to complete a full axis rotation.Very close to Earth's rotation by at least 20 minutes. Mars is also the second smallest planet in our solar system next to Venus and known as the "Red Planet" because of its reddish appearance and named after the Roman god of war. Its mass is approximately 6.4185 x 10 kilograms and unfortunately Mars doesn't have any rings that unique trait belongs to Saturn in solar system.

Mars's unique traits

Analysis of Mars

Mars is a terrestrial planet and somewhat rocky. Its internal composition is made of thick layer of oxidized iron dust and rocks of the same color. Mars also has a weaker gravitational pull due to it having less mass than Earth. The surface gravity on Mars is about 38% of the surface gravity on Earth, therefore allowing you to jump a bit farther without much effort. The atmosphere of Mars is 100 times thinner than Earth's and its 95% carbon dioxide making it nearly impossible for humans to breath on it. Mars's temperature range can reach a high of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and at noon its low is -225 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mars's Potential

Mars, for a very long time has sat just sitting next to earth idly and all we've ever done is send androids and drones to analyze it. It can be colonized with the proper tools and technology, even if it gets cold that's what astronaut suits are for to protect you against almost any weather condition and temperature. Over the centuries humans have proven that anything is possible through perseverance and dedication so why not make another giant leap for humanity and colonize another planet and expand our living space. who knows, what if there are extra-terrestrial's out there scientists and astronomers all over the world would rejoice. So let's get up there and expand are infinite horizons for generations to come!
