LIFE ON MARS Welcome to our ‘website’! We’re going to help you learn all about mars- and the creatures that could have lived there. Well, why did you choose to do this, you ask? Well, look here: INSPIRATION LINKS INFO Quiz Talk with the creators CREATURES
There are many creatures that could have lived on Mars. We have taken Mars data and created some hypothetical creatures to live on mars. We will explain them in detail.

CREATURES Back Click the image to see Elongurm from Different angles Elongurm is a large, Blind creature that Resembles a worm. It is a decomposer. It Has two arms, like a Human. Leigelung is a small dog-sized herbivore. It has large lungs that allows it to breathe enough air.
TALK WITH THE CREATORS
Q: So, what exactly are you guys doing? A: Hayes: Well, we’re just gathering Mars Life Evidence. Evan:
Well it’s a project that Hayes + Me are doing that is about mars, and
what could live there.
Q: Why is this slide show important?
A: Hayes: It’s a WEBSITE- and it’s our entire project! Evan: I agree with Hayes- REALLY. I mean really, really.
Q: How can we make mars habitable? A: Hayes: Well, you would have to make it warmer and wetter- and, consequentially, more lush. Evan: Sure. I mean, we don’t have all these scientific words to say what we need, but hey? Q: Are you doing mars or just planets? A: Evan+Hayes: MAAAARRRRSS!!!!!!!

There were three mars eras.
The first era was a lush time. A perfect time for most creatures to live. There was clay minerals like chasmotite. It was a good time.
Info Meteors Climate Works Cited Home The next era was a dangerous one. Acidic lava rained from the sky. Volcanic activity made the lush planet a barren, rocky wasteland. If there were any creatures, they all died out. The third era started many million years ago, and continues to today
Me and Evan’s project is based on Life On Mars, so let’s talk about this.
Mars is one of the only planets in this galaxy that we think could host or could have hosted life. Recently, a meteor from Mars crashed on earth called ALH 84001. This meteor was small, but it contained evidence of life! Nano-sized magnetites were found in this meteor, and they were dubbed as a biosignature. Nothing can seem to explain these magnetites. And there is another meteor called the nahkla meteor. This meteor fell on earth on June 28, 1911. In 1988, a team of scientists from Johnson space center obtained a small piece of this rock for analysis. They found preterrestrial aqueous alteration steps. They also discovered fossilized Nano-Bacteria. But this existence is controversial.
Mars right now, is in fact quite dry and hot. And also covered with a rather large amount rocks. Its soil is rocky and slightly volcanic. The air and soil is full of iron and oxygen,
Which gives the planet its rusty red hue. Did you know is named Mars after the Roman god of war because of its bloody color? And it has pink clouds because of its red dust blown up by wind? It’s true!

We really think that alien life is cool, and a planet that could have hosted it? Well! This is our way of sharing with everyone what we think is cool and want them to know!
Umm… Evan doesn’t want to say any thing, so….. Uh….. Just click here:
But check out this
Evans idea !
I promised Evan he could have a page to himself and, well…… here it is….Yeah thanks a lot Hayes, you took up my page! BUT ANYWAYS,I want to tell you to check up on the kepler mission.
I want you to check out Kepler!
The Kepler mission
So, you haven't heard of it? Well its all about finding life on new planets. And so far its been a success. If you want to learn more about the kepler mission click here.
