One year on Mars is 687 earth days.

Valles Marineris Mars is a very cold planet. Mars has an average temperature of -23 degrees C. But sometimes near the Martian equator in summer it can warm up to +15 degrees C. In winter it can drop to a -140 degrees C.You better be ready for that! You should also watch out for sand storms and sand devils. In case you're wondering what sand devils are, they are basically sand tornadoes. DIFFERENCES There are not many discoveries on Mars.
NASA says that Mars could have had life on it. Curiosity (a Mars rover) found an energy source to feed on. The Mariner 9 (a satellite) helped scientists to discover that water may have flowed on Mars. The rovers and satellites also helped to discover craters like Hellas Basin, Asimov and Horowitz. We are still not able to get to our sister planet. So we can only study Mars through rovers and satellites. ENJOY! See a little more information below. QUICK FACTS ON THE SITES Olympus Mons is the largest volcano in our Solar system. It is 3X the size of Mount Everest!
Valles Marineris is a system of canyons. It is 5X deeper then the Grand Canyon! It is also 10X longer then the Grand Canyon!
The Tharsis province contains the volcano Alba Mons.
The Elysium province contains the volcanos Elysium Mons, Hecates Tholus and Albor Tholus. For more information you can google these places. COMPARING TO EARTH Mars has a smaller diameter then Earth.

END! c ENTERTAINMENT For entertainment you can go down Olympus Mons on a "wheel 'n board." A wheel 'n board is basically a snowboard with the Mars rovers wheels. The wheels are flexible so if you hit a bump your wheel will go up and drop down when going down the bump.( If you don't like snowboarding you can try the "sled 'n wheels").
Another form of fun is getting to ride the Mars rovers. You will get to experience what the Mars rover does. But if you don't want to go on the ride, there are special goggles you can wear to watch a film that shows how it is to be a Mars rover.
Another form of entertainment is a tour bus ride. On the bus ride you will visit and learn about Olympus Mons, Valles Marineris, the Martian north and south pole and the volcanic provinces.
