Mars red planet

Scientists (as well as many people) in the world still believe that some planets in the solar system – contain life that we have yet to discover. Mars is a planet that is believed to most likely have some kind of life. The possibility of finding some human-like form has long since been abandoned. It is expected to be life – most likely at the level of bacteria. There are scientists who prefer Venus to Mars, but expectations from Mars are high. Venus’ soil is too hot, but scientists have found space in its clouds that are suitable for some forms of microscopic creatures. Let’s go back to planet. This is a planet that is 227.9 million kilometers away from the Sun, and is smaller in size than the Earth. This is red planet.

Temperature on the planet

The diameter of planet is approximately 6791 kilometers, and like Earth – Mars has polar caps that contain a small amount of water and frozen carbon dioxide. Something reminiscent of Earth are also the Martian seasons caused by Earth with a similar inclination of 25.19 °. However, planet seasons are twice as long as ours. Throughout the year, temperatures on planet range from -140 ° C to 70.5. The crust of the planet is 50 to 120 kilometers thick and is red. Why red? Planet has a lot of iron oxide (rust) on its surface, and it gives the planet a distinctive red color. Its two moons orbit Mars: Deimos and Phobos. Unfortunately, in the photo taken by the amateur Earth Telescope – those two months are not visible.
