  1. 1. MARSMARS BY:BY: Baltazar Martínez R., AntonioBaltazar Martínez R., Antonio Ruiz and Álvaro Herrada.Ruiz and Álvaro Herrada.
  2. 2. The Planet • Scientists like studying about Mars because its similar to the Earth. • Evidence suggests that Mars once had rivers, streams, lakes, and even an ocean. • As Mars' atmosphere slowly depleted into outer space, the surface water began to permanently evaporate.
  3. 3. What does Mars mean? • Mars was the Roman god of war and agriculture • In Greek, Mars was known as Ares.
  4. 4. How much would you weigh on Mars? • If you weighed 70 pounds (32 kg) on the Earth, you would weigh about 27 pounds (12 kg) on Mars.
  5. 5. Exploration • The satellites sent these pictures back to Earth. • As scientific technology became more advanced, scientists were able to put spacecraft into orbit around the Red Planet. • In 2007, NASA's Spirit Rover on Mars captured an image of a rock that is shaped like a human. This is quite a fascinating find. .
  6. 6. • Mars is one of the most explored worlds in the Solar System, from orbiting satellites to landing probes to moving robot rovers. • Since the beginning of the use of the telescope in the early 1600's, people have been in love, and even afraid of Mars. Through the telescope, ancient astronomers could see what appeared to be season changes .
  7. 7. Is there life on Mars? • No life has been found yet. In recent years, NASA has sent probes, which are satellites that actually land, to explore the planet's surface. One important part of the mission of these probes has been to look for life. They take little scoops of dirt and perform a series of experiments. By looking at the way the dirt reacts in these experiments.
  8. 8. Has there ever been life on Mars? • In Mars there is a canyon similar to the Grand Canyon in the USA, which was created by two big forces: wind and running water. Today there is no flowing water on Mars. But if there was, as suggested by this canyon, then it is very possible that life once existed on Mars. The experiments looking for life on Mars didn’t have positive results, but there is some evidence that supports ancient life on Mars.
  9. 9. The Red Planet • People call Mars "Red Planet." This is because the surface of Mars is red. If you stood on the surface of Mars, you would see red dirt and rocks everywhere.
  10. 10. Mars surface • Mars has higher mountains, and deeper canyons than any other planet. The largest canyon on Mars would stretch from New York City to Los Angeles on the Earth. That makes the Grand Canyon look tiny. It also has the Solar System's biggest volcano, Olympus Mons, which is nearly 3 times larger than Mount Everest.
  11. 11. Moons • Mars has two moons, their names are Deimos and Phobos.
  12. 12. DEIMOS AND PHOBOS • They are extremely small: Deimos is only 12.6 km long, and Phobos is 22.2 km long. That is smaller than most towns. Because they are small, their gravity is very weak. Astronomers think that these two worlds probably started as asteroids between Mars and Jupiter. • Phobos is a doomed world. Those who live in about 50 million years will never get to see it. Every hundred years it moves almost two meters closer to the surface of Mars.
  13. 13. Can we live on Mars? • Mars and Earth are not just different in color, they are made of different materials – Mars’ surface is covered in dry iron oxide dust (just like the rust that you can find on an old car), whereas our home is mostly wet with water. Since the air on Mars is thin and made of carbon dioxide - you will need to wear a spacesuit, and because the red planet hardly has an atmosphere, you would need to protect yourself from the Sun’s radiation that here on Earth our thick atmosphere protects us from. •
