Interesting Facts About Mars
1. The Egyptians gave Mars its first recorded name: Har dècher (“The red one”). The Babylonians called it Nergal (“Star of death”). The Greeks and Romans named the planet after their respective gods of war, Ares and Mars. The Hebrews called it Ma’adim, or “One who blushes.” Many ancient people believed the reddish color came from actual blood on the planet.
2. The month of March is named after Mars.
3. The symbol of Mars looks like a shield and a spear from the war god Mars/Ares. It is also the symbol for the male sex.
4. The ancient Greeks thought that Earth was the center of the universe and that Mars was one of the five traveling stars that revolved around it.
5. Egyptians called Mars the “the backward traveler” because Mars appeared to move backwards through the zodiac every 25.7 months.
6. Mars’ red color is due to iron oxide, also known as rust, and has the consistency of talcum powder. Literally, the metallic rocks on Mars are rusting.
7. The atmosphere (mostly made up of carbon dioxide) on Mars is so thin that water cannot exist in liquid form—it can exist only as water vapor or ice. Liquid water is considered for many scientists to be the “holy grail” of Mars.
8. No human could survive the low pressure of Mars. If you went to Mars without an appropriate space suit, the oxygen in your blood would literally turn into bubbles, causing immediate death.
9. If you were driving 60 mph in a car, it would take 271 years and 221 days to get to Mars from Earth.
10. Mars lacks an ozone layer; therefore, the surface of Mars is bathed in a lethal dose of radiation every time the sun rises.
Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System. Jupiter is the 3rd brightest in the night sky after in moon and Venus. In 1610, Galileo Galilei discovered Jupiter with a telescope.
The name Jupiter
How many moons does Jupiter have
Europa is the sixth-closest moon of Jupiter, and the smallest of its four Galilean satellites.
Io is the innermost of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter. It is the fourth-largest moon.
Callisto is one of the 67 moons of Jupiter. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei.
With an average temperature of minus 234 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 145 degrees Celsius), Jupiter is frigid even in its warmest weather. Unlike Earth, whose temperature varies as one moves closer to or farther from the equator, Jupiter's temperature depends more on height above the surface. This is because heat is driven not by the sun but by the inside of the planet.

Do you believe space exploration IS or IS NOT important for human? Why?
Ishnoor Answer Is:
Yes, space exploration is important because it helps us to know more about our universe for example we get to know about our planets, and satellites etc. Space exploration helps us to know that is there any meteor shower coming near Earth , we get to know that there is water on Mars , there are how many moon's of the planets etc. So, I think space exploration is important for humans.
