I have found alot about mars. Mars was considered the "red planet that apperes to be a sparkling rusty red ball" as the book states. Mars was named for the ancient roman god of war to symbolize the blood that shed during war. Mars takes longer to orbit around the sun this takes longer that the earth to orbit aroound the sun. Mars is the fourth planet away from the sun. Earth is third away from the sun. Mars is smaller than the sun. Mars surface looks simialar to the dessert. Mars is -63 degrees Fahrenheit earths water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. You can see Mars through a telescope and you will see areas of red green and brownish colors. Ocasinaly you can see white ice caps on mars. There is an unproven story about mars and that is if Mars have Live people called Martians. Percival Lowell made a Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. There has been a successful trip to mars in 1964 in Canaveral, Florida. I found this book very Educational and suggest reading this bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
