Answer #1

Here are some starters:

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and is probably the planet most similar to Earth (Venus is closer in size, but is hotter than Hades because of its thick atmosphere). Like the earth, Mars has surface features that resemble the earth’s - polar caps, mountains, valleys, even extinct volcanoes. And a thin atmosphere (much thinner than earth’s, but still, an atmosphere)

Now, whether this means there is life in some form on Mars is still debatable. The key issue is water, and the scientists are still looking on that one. It might be there in the past there was enough water vapour for life.

Like the other planets (except Earth) Mars is named after a deity in Roman mythology - Mars, the god of war - probably because of its red color (red being associated with war).

Mars has two very small moons (natural satellites is the scientific term), Phoebos and Deimos. They’re oddly shaped, so scientists think they may be asteroids that got caught in Mars’ gravitational field.

And now the statistics: Mars is smaller than the earth: only 15% its size in volume, and 11% its mass (it’s lighter than earth, mainly because earth has so much water. Because it’s further away from the sun, it takes longer to orbit the sun - that means its ‘year’ is longer than earth years: 687 days. Because its orbit isn’t a perfect circle, the distance from the sun varies, but the average is 228 million kilometers (or 142 million miles)

Because it has such a thin atmosphere and is father from the sun than we are, the temperatures vary and can be extreme: from a high of 90F/32C to decidedly chilly lows of -190F/-123C.

When Mars is in the sky at night it’s easy to see it, because of its relative brightness and its definitely reddish color.

But as for little green men from Mars… sorry!

Answer #2

I would add that there is no liquid water(as far as I know), however, there is ice.
