The awesome red planet
Opportunity set a record of driving 220 meters in a day.100 days before that, one rover got stuck. Then using its camera it showed where it got stuck. Scientists figured it out by making a model testing it out.
The Red Planet
It also has two moons Demios and Phobios. Phobios gets 6 ft. closer to mars every year. So it could crash into Mars in about 500 million years. It takes 7 hours and 39 minutes for Phobios to orbit Mars. It takes Demios 30 hours to orbit Mars.
Water, Water, Where Are You?
Scientists say there used to be water on Mars, do you believe it? If we had technology back in the day we would have probably found the answer. The good thing is we already have. There indeed is water on Mars , but not for us to drink. Any liquid water is not accessible, you have to dig for it.
Opportunity and Spirit also found water. One found rock that had minerals that are only in water! Images from 2005 showed new trails of matter that scientists are almost certain are from water. So there is water!
