Transcript of Mars Information report
By Ethan Epifanio 5/6T
Mars is an uninhabited planet in our solar system, which is named after Mars, the roman god of war.
Mars is also called "The Red Planet".
Location and Appearance
Mars is the 4th closest planet to the sun, 227,940,000KM away to be exact.
Mars is the next planet after Earth.
Mars is red in colour, 1 of the 4 rocky planets and it's surface is extremely dry with 635,000 craters on it.
Mars is round in shape just like the other planets and it has no rings however it does have 2 moons, Phobos and Deimos.
Mars' atmosphere is made of 95.3% carbon dioxide,2.7% nitrogen,1.6% argon,0.08% carbon monoxide and 0.13% oxygen, because there is so little oxygen it is non-breathable for humans.
Rotation and Orbit
1 day a full rotation is 24.62 hours on Mars.
1 year, a full orbit is 1.88 earth years.
In terms of exploration via space probe, Mars is a tourist attraction.
There have been 56 missions to Mars between 2002 and 2013.
Mariner 4 was the 1st probe to fly past Mars, what a trip!
On this mission, 22 black and white pictures were taken.
The 2 most important pictures taken were: the 1st close up pictures of Mars' surface.
The other was a picture proving there are craters on it's surface. NASA's Mars Exploration Rover (MER) sent 2 unmanned rovers called Spirit and Opportunity to Mars.
These 6-wheeled vehicles found evidence of past-flowing water, they also collected information on the rocks and soil on Mars.
Exploration rover, Curiosity is a rover currently on Mars.
It was Launched on 26 November 2011 at 10:02 EST, and landed on the surface on 23 August 2012 at 05:17 UTC.

Thanks for watching!
Astronomers are still very interested in Mars, more discoveries are almost certain to be made.
The question must be asked, will we be living on Mars one day?
Mars’ atmosphere is made up of: 95.3% carbon dioxide, 2.75 nitrogen, 1.6% argon, 0.08% carbon monoxide and 0.13% oxygen which means if humans went to Mars they wouldn’t be able to breathe there.
