About Mars…

  • Fourth planet

  • Roman God of War, Mars.

  • "Red Planet"

  • iron oxide

Iron oxide- Chemical compounds composed of Iron and Oxygen. All together, there are sixteen known Iron Oxides and Oxyhydroxides.IrBut here on Earth we call it RUST. oxides

About Mars…

  • Terrestrial planet

  • Has thin atmosphere

  • Having surface features reminiscent both of the craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.

  • Therotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth.

Structures of Mars

  • Olympus Mons

  • Valles Marineris

  • Borealis basin

  • 40% of the planet


Life in mars

Mar’s CORE

  • Iron and sulfur

  • iron oxide (reddish hue.)

  • Major iron component (that is where the similarities stop)

  • Martian core- solid and does not move

  • 2,960 km in diameter.

  • Lacks a magnetic field

  • Bombarded by radiation that killed an potential life forms millennia ago.

Mar’s MANTLE

  • NO tectonic plate action/assist in removing carbon

  • kind of like a rock paste.

  • There are no numbers for the thickness of the mantle available at this time.


Life in mars

Mar’s CRUST

  • Mainly basalt

  • From volcanic activity

  • 50 and 125 km thick.

  • Iron oxide dust.


Life in mars

Noachian Period

  • Noachis Terra;

  • oldest extant 4.5 billion years ago to 3.5 billion years ago.

  • scarred by many large impact craters.


Amazonian period

Amazonian Period

  • Amazonis Plantia

  • 2.9–3.3 billion years ago to present.

  • few meteorite impact craters


Hesperian period

Hesperian Period

  • Hesperia Planum

  • (3.5 billion years ago to 2.9–3.3 billion years ago).

  • extensive lava plains


Life in mars

Tharsis Bulge

  • A volcanic upland

  • Extensive flooding by liquid water
