WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE ON MARS?

On Mars, you will get extra time in the day to do the things you want to do, like sleep in! Martian days are about 40 Minutes longer than Earth days. But compared to earth you will get 687 days a year.

Mars also has great scenery. For example, volcano, Olympus Mons, the biggest mountain in the entire solar system. Its base is large enough to cover the entire state of Montana and Rhode Island could fit comfortably in its crater. It is thought that some of Mars' giant canyons and other surface features were formed from water flowing over the surface a long time ago when Mars was much warmer and may have supported life.
