what dose mars have

Life requirements

We have a few basic needs for survival . These include energy sources (food, plants, the Sun), nutrients, water, oxygen and a moderate temperature. Humans also need protection from poisonous gases and high levels of radiation. We need something t give us energy and that's most of the time food.

The atmosphere of Mars is less than 1% of Earth's, so it dose not protect the planet from the Sun's radiation also does it doesn't do much to retain heat at the surface. It consists of 95% carbon dioxide, 3% nitrogen, 1.6% argon, and the remainder is trace amounts of oxygen, water vapor, and other gases.
