Five things you want to know about Mars

on August 3, 2012

On Sunday robotic rover named Curiosity will attemp to land in Mars – according to NASA. Below are the things you may want to know abour Mars 🙂

Here are five other key points:

1. The colour: It’s called the red planet because the landscape is stained rusty-red by the iron-rich dust.

2. Weight loss: Its gravity is only 38 per cent that of Earth. So if you weigh 150 pounds (68 kilograms) on Earth, you would weigh 57 pounds (26 kilograms) on Mars.

3. Temperature: Mars’ temperatures can range from 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius) at its equator to -199 Fahrenheit (-128 Celsius) at its poles.

4. The air is different: Mars’ atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide with traces of nitrogen and argon. Earth’s atmosphere is a mixture of nitrogen, oxygen and other gases.

5. Longer days: They last 40 minutes longer than a day on Earth.
