“I cannot wait until we arrive”
Mars is much smaller than Earth, but has a similar surface area.
Thin Atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, argon, and traces of oxygen
Average pressure is 7 milibars
Hmmm Interesting! Mars is
the 4th planet and the
7th largest planet
Oh No! We need to be far
away from the winter
pole because it is -207 degrees
F, that means we need to be on
the side closest to the sun
because the temperature
is around 80 degrees F there.
Distance of Mars from the
sun is around 128,390,000
miles and as high as
The color of Mars is a bright reddish-orange
“I did not know Mars travels
around the sun 687 days!”
Evolved around 4.6 billion years ago
Mars has been divided into three periods
1.The Noachian Period – Noachis Terra, southern hemisphere highland
2. The Hesperian Period – a tall plain in the southern hemisphere
3. The Amazonian Period – (low rate of cratering) low plain in the northern hemisphere .
“The Amazonian Period is the youngest geologic materials on Mars”
“During the Noachian Period, meteoroids and large asteroids struck Mars”
Plains are flat and low.
They are located in
There is 0.13% of oxygen in the atmosphere of Mars.
Carbon dioxide is a big percentage, it makes up 95.3% of gas
Nitrogen makes up 2.7% of the atmosphere, Argon makes up 1.6%, carbon monoxide is 0.07%, and water makes up 0.03%.
“Thin clouds can form high altitudes, and they are made up of frozen carbon dioxide particles”
“A little known fact is Dust Storms are common when Mars is closer to the sun.”
Mars has three important Layers
The radius of the core is around 900 to 1,200 miles
Cool! The temperature of the mantle is around 2700 degrees F
In the 1800s, Giovanni V. Schiaparelli, who is an Italian astronomer, stated that he had seen a network of straight dark lines. The lines were called canali (channels).
Percival Lovell, stated the canali was built by a Martian civilization.
Did you know that early astronomers found polar caps that grown and shrink with the seasons?
“In 2002, the probe found vast amounts of frozen water beneath the surface.”
1. Chemicals such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen
2. Source of energy
3. Liquid water
Sunlight could be the energy source, and heat is the second energy source
In 1996, David S. McKay, who is a geologists, stated that scientists had discovered evidence of Martian life.
The evidence had organic molecules, called magnetite, which are grains of minerals.
Listen up! did you all know living things might exist on Mars today!
“Wow!” “I learned so much about Mars that I did not know”
Goodbye! Big reddish-orange planet!
