All about Mars!
Before you start hit the link at the bottom for space music!
Here you will learn about some of the basics!
Mars is 141,600,000 miles from the sun, which is 227,900,000km from the sun, it is also the fourth planet in order from the sun. Mars' atmosphere is mostly made of Carbon dioxide which is 95%, and Nitrogen which is 2.7%, Argon which is 1.6%, oxygen .13%, And lastly water which is barely 0.03%. The hottest day on Mars is 41 degrees Celsius, which is about 106 degrees fahrenheit. On an average day it is about 70 degrees fahrenheit, and by night it can get down to minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit. It never rains on Mars because of the thin atmosphere and the lack of a magnetosphere. Nice short sleeve weather and comfortable clothes are good for doing activity on Mars. In the next section you can find exactly what some of the activities you can do on Mars are.
Mars has a striking red appearance, and in its most favorable position for viewing, when it is opposite the sun, it is twice as bright as Sirius, the brightest star. Mars has a diameter of 4,200 miles, just over half the diameter of the earth, and its mass is only 11% of the earth's mass. A year on mars lasts 1.88 earth years, and about 687 earth days. That is also how long it takes to revolve around the sun. A day on mars (which is also how long it takes to rotate on its axis) is one earth day and 40 earth minutes. Mars has two moons, one named Phobos, and the other named Diomos. The gravity on Mars is much less than it is on earth. It is 62% less then it is here on earth. Like a person weighing 220 pounds on earth would weigh 84 on Mars.
