Mars 1.2 [free]

Descrizione

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, after Mercury.Often referred to as the "Red Planet"[13][14]
because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance.[15] Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent
both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.
The rotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth, as is the tilt that produces the seasons. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the
largest volcano and second-highest known mountain in the Solar System, and of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons in the Solar System. The smooth Borealis basin in
the northern hemisphere covers 40% of the planet and may be a giant impact feature.[16][17] Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are small and irregularly shaped.
These may be captured asteroids,[18][19] similar to 5261 Eureka, a Mars trojan.
Until the first successful Mars flyby in 1965 by Mariner 4, many speculated about the presence of liquid water on the planet's surface. This was based on observed periodic
variations in light and dark patches, particularly in the polar latitudes, which appeared to be seas and continents; long, dark striations were interpreted by some as
irrigation channels for liquid water. These straight line features were later explained as optical illusions, though geological evidence gathered by uncrewed missions
suggests that Mars once had large-scale water coverage on its surface at some earlier stage of its existence.[20] In 2005, radar data revealed the presence of large
quantities of water ice at the poles[21] and at mid-latitudes.[22][23] The Mars rover Spirit sampled chemical compounds containing water molecules in March 2007. The Phoenix
lander directly sampled water ice in shallow Martian soil on July 31, 2008.[24] On September 28, 2015, NASA announced the presence of briny flowing salt water on the Martian
surface.[25]
