Mars - The Red Planet

Mars ‘The Red Planet’
Ever Since Humans have looked into the sky, we have dreamed and wondered, what is that little glowing red dot in the sky, and what is it all about. Today we have some answers to that question.

The first successful flyby of Mars occurred in 1965, by Mariner 4, since then we have sent many landers, and rovers, to its surface, looking to see if there is life, wondering if someday we may call Mars ‘The Red Planet’ our home.

MARS: The Beauty Of The Red Planet

Wonderful images of Mars seen through the eyes of Nasa's Viking spacecraft

The Viking program consisted of a pair of American space probes sent to Mars, Viking 1 and Viking 2.[1] Each spacecraft was composed of two main parts: an orbiter designed to photograph the surface of Mars from orbit, and a lander designed to study the planet from the surface. The orbiters also served as communication relays for the landers once they touched down.

The Viking program grew from NASA's earlier, even more ambitious, Voyager Mars program, which was not related to the successful Voyager deep space probes of the late 1970s. Viking 1 was launched on August 20, 1975, and the second craft, Viking 2, was launched on September 9, 1975, both riding atop Titan III-E rockets with Centaur upper stages. Viking 1 entered Mars orbit on June 19, 1976, with Viking 2 following suit on August 7.

After orbiting Mars for more than a month and returning images used for landing site selection, the orbiters and landers detached; the landers then entered the Martian atmosphere and soft-landed at the sites that had been chosen. The Viking 1 lander touched down on the surface of Mars on July 20, 1976, and was joined by the Viking 2 lander on September 3. The orbiters continued imaging and performing other scientific operations from orbit while the landers deployed instruments on the surface.

The project cost roughly 1 billion USD in 1970s dollars,[4][5] equivalent to about 11 billion USD in 2016 dollars. It was highly successful and formed most of the body of knowledge about Mars through the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System, after Mercury. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often described as the Red Planet because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, 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 second highest known mountain within the Solar System (the tallest on a planet), and of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons. The smooth Borealis basin in the northern hemisphere covers 40% of the planet and may be a giant impact feature. Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are small and irregularly shaped. These may be captured asteroids, similar to 5261 Eureka, a Mars trojan.

Mars is host to seven functioning spacecraft: five in orbit – the Mars Odyssey, Mars Express, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter,MAVEN and Mars Orbiter Mission – and two on the surface – Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity and the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity. Defunct spacecraft on the surface include MER-A Spirit and several other inert landers and rovers such as the Phoenix lander, which completed its mission in 2008. Observations by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have revealed possible flowing water during the warmest months on Mars. In 2013, NASA's Curiosity rover discovered that Mars' soil contains between 1.5% and 3% water by mass (about two pints of water per cubic foot or 33 liters per cubic meter, albeit attached to other compounds and thus not freely accessible).

Mars can easily be seen from Earth with the naked eye, as can its reddish coloring. Its apparent magnitude reaches −3.0, which is surpassed only by Jupiter, Venus, the Moon, and the Sun. Optical ground-based telescopes are typically limited to resolving features about 300 km (186 miles) across when Earth and Mars are closest because of Earth's atmosphere.

For 10 Years NASA Has Been Capturing Images of Mars and They Now Reveal the Planet's Amazing Beauty

On August 12, 2005, NASA launched an unmanned spacecraft. The idea was for them to capture photos of the unexplored planet. Mars is also known as the Red Planet. This is because the planet has a reddish hue when observed in the night sky. It is the fourth closest planet to the sun, right beside Earth, which is the third. Mars is just over half the size of Earth. It has just about 38 percent of the surface gravity than Earth does. Mars has water; however, because of the low atmospheric pressure on Mars, it has only 1 percent of the water that Earth does.

On Mars, there is a lot of water ice. Scientists believe that the Mars polar caps contain a great deal of ice. They believe that if all of the ice at the south pole of Mars were to melt, it would cover the whole planet in 36 feet of water. In 1610, a scientist was able to examine Mars through a telescope. It was then that the Italian astronomer Galileo made his breakthrough. In 1659, a Dutch scientist named Christiaan Huygens was the first scientist to identify a Martian feature, the volcanic plain of Syrtis Major. It was then determined that the length of a day on Mars was 24 hours and 30 minutes.

We couldn't wait to get spaceships to Mars to explore. This started the Cold War Space Race between the USA and the USSR. The Soviets were the first to launch a probe to Mars in 1961, but the Americans were the first to find success with Mars-bound spaceships. The Soviet Union launched five missions to Mars between 1960 and 1962, but all of them failed. The US sent their first ship to Mars in 1964, but that one failed also. Later in 1964, the US spaceship, Mariner 4, made it to Mars. They had a successful flyby in July 1965. When the craft returned to Earth, it had detailed pictures of the surface of the planet.

After the first flyby of Mars, more and more missions were sent to the planet. With technology, the missions were more successful. Regardless of the success, two out of three missions failed. In 1971, Mariner 7 managed to orbit around the whole planet. In 1976, Viking 1 and 2 were able to land on the surface of Mars. Viking 1 managed to get the first ever, color photo of the planet's surface.

In 1966, the Mars Global Surveyor spaceship was sent to space for a mapping exercise. It wasn't going to land on Mars, but it was going to find optimal spots for spacecraft to land in the future. Finally, in 2008, the American spacecraft Phoenix landed in the northern pole of Mars. It was a robotic vehicle that had a probing arm. It was then that we confirmed that there is water on Mars in the form of ice.

This spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida in August 2005, and it cost $720 million to build. The spaceship was 21-feet tall, and it contained a radio antenna dish that was 10-feet in diameter. It was also fitted with 220 square feet of solar panels. It weighed 4,800 pounds when it was launched, and half of that was fuel to power the necessary 20 thrust engines.

When the Orbiter was launched, it took seven months to get to Mars. The operation lasted for five months. The main objective of the Orbiter was to find out more about the past levels of water n Mars. Scientists knew that the water ran across the surface of the planet earlier. Now they wanted to know if there was still water present, allowing for living organisms to thrive on the planet for long periods of time.

The purpose of the mission was to measure the weather trends on the Red Planet. They wanted to know more about the seasonal changes and the makeup of the polar ice fields. They also wanted to search for dangerous landing areas, such as protruding rocks.

In 2008, the Phoenix that had been launched in August 2007 and it had a successful soft landing on Mars. They managed to get a photo of Phoenix as it parachuted down to Mars. The area where it landed looked a lot like the Earth's polar regions that are covered with permafrost. The robotic arm was dropped to take samples of the soil on Mars. These samples confirmed that there was ice just below the surface.

During the mission, the spacecraft was able to capture 2,054 images of the Red Planet. The photos told them a lot about the planet. There are pictures of the areas where there was once water. There are a few frozen spots on the planet that are sheltered from the sun's rays by deep folds of dunes. There is a photo that was taken in May, which is the Martian spring, where snow and ice on the ground are actually frozen carbon dioxide, also known as dry ice. For Ten Years NASA Has Been Capturing Images Of Mars – And They Reveal The Planet's Amazing Beauty.

Learn on the planet of mars
The red planet in a billion stars
Come and sing along about the planet of mars

I’m the fourth planet from our burning sun
and the second smallest planet in our solar system
I have the tallest mountain named Olympus Mons
It’s the biggest volcano in our whole system
Phobos and Deimos are my two moons
Phobos is the larger of the orbiting two
It circles me 3 times a day and that's true
But It takes 30 hours for Deimos to loop

When you’re on my surface then you’ll probably freeze
I am a cold negative 81 degrees
24 hours and 37 minutes long
Is a full day on mars so you've learned in this song

Why is Mars Called the Red Planet?

Why is Mars called the red planet, why is mars red and why does Mars appear to be a red planet are curious topic to much people, who have interest on other planets or solar system. Planet Mars called red planet because lots of rocks have on the surface with full of iron and they oxidizing. This Martian rusty materials were transported around the planet in dust clouds. When rusty dust from those Martian rocks kicked up in the atmosphere it makes planet mars sky looks pink and from long way away, mars planet color looks kind of reddish. But as a whole when we see mars from long, like from earth, it looks reddish and this is why mars called red planet. In short, due to iron oxidizing rusty materials, mars turned red.

But if you look closely at mars surface footage, true color of mars not same as a whole due to different minerals around. Some regions appear bright orange, while others look brown, some area looks golden and others like greenish. Planet mars Facts are there are a lot of colors in real, due to multicultural agents presents on Mars different area. In this short video you will see some real footage of mars that may clarify you about mars real color. Mars sky color is red as well.

Hello Happy Friends!

Are you ready to learn?

I’m Sara, and today, we’re going to discover the most fascinating planet in the solar system, today, we’re going to learn about Mars, the red planet.

-
Mars is the second to last smallest planet in the solar system, and fourth in terms of proximity to the sun.

Although we still haven’t been able to step on it’s surface, we know a lot of things about this planet, thanks to the robots we’ve sent, like this one you can see in the images…

-

Its surface looks like a rocky desert, full of craters, plains and it also has volcanoes and ice,

actually it has two frozen polar caps, and here we can find the greatest volcano in the solar system, called Mount Olympus. It’s gigantic

-

We all know that a year on Earth takes 365 days, but… Do you know how much a year takes in Mars? Well it takes much longer, it takes 687 days.

On the other hand, days take 24 hours and 40 minutes, very similar to what it takes on planet Earth.

-

The average temperature on Mars, is minus 63 degrees centigrade, and if we compare it with the average temperature in our planet, which is 14 degrees centigrade, we realise just how cold it is on the red planet.

To finish off, Do you know how many satellites Mars has? It has two, Phobos and Deimos, but they aren’t round like the our satellite, the moon, they look more like potatoes. Don’t they?


Well, I hope you found Mars interesting, and that you’re always ready to learn!
Bye Happy friends, see you next time, bye!
