95% CO2, 2.7% N2, 1.8% Ar, .13% O2, .07% CO
Surface pressure is approximate 6-7 millibars
Average Temperature = -55°C
78% N2, 21%O2, .9% Ar, .03% CO2
Surface pressure is about 1.01 bar
Average Surface Temperature = 15°C
One approach to avoid oxygen toxicity and flammability hazards is to use a mixed gas suit
