The Exploration of Mars

- For decades, humans have wanted to see more of the planet we call Mars, the red planet. There have been many successful attempts to get a glimpse of the interesting planet, and scientists are still working on a better solution to get there. The first rover to explore Mars was "Mariner 4", which arrived on November 28, 1964. It was a spacecraft designated to orbit the planet of Mars, but not to land. It lasted for about 8 months, and was not able to survive much longer than that due to the conditions on and around Mars....   [tags: Mars Rover Design]

Analysis of the Mars One Programs

- The idea to colonize Mars is thought to be a long shot but researchers believe it is possible. It’s crazy to think that one day there could be another planet like Earth. However, the researchers for the Mars-one program have been figuring out ways to do it. Mars is about 35 million miles away from the earth so one of the hardest parts of it all will be getting there (UCSB). To successfully colonize Mars you need to know; how to get there, who would go, and how to survive once you’re there. A lot of people think since Mars is much farther than the Moon that is would take a bigger spaceship to get there but this is not true....   [tags: colonize mars, mars one, red planet]

Terraforming Mars for Human Habitation

- Terraforming Mars is the process of purposely changing the known properties of Mars to satisfy safe human habitation. In order to do this, we would have to use a 1000-year timeline. A thousand year timeline is best because it would give humans the time needed to change the atmosphere of Mars, change the temperature of Mars, grow food, and more.

Life on Martian Meteorites

- ABSTRACT In this paper, the great dispute of whether or not there is real evidence of life on martian meteorites is discussed. Findings of carbon globules, nanocrystal magnetites, and rod-shaped objects on ALH84001, Nakhla and Yamata 593 suggest biogenic processes once occurred on Mars. Furthermore, past atmospheric conditions and a current abundance of methane gas build more justification to martian life. Many of these discoveries are accused of being accounted for by either terrestrial contamination or abiotic processes, but composition analysis and model experiments show that contamination cannot be held fully responsible....   [tags: Mars]

Due to this, the issue of plate tectonics on Mars is a contested issue. While scientists are sure that the core of Mars is not active, which means no plate tectonics; they cannot be sure that there was never a time when there were. Mars was formed by materials that were released by the early solar nebula. Mars’ core is 1,300-1,500 km in radius and is not active....   [tags: Scientific Research ]

The Potential for Life on Mars

- The importance of water was discussed earlier; however new light is brought onto the subject when thinking in the present. The main problem with water on Mars is the lack of pressure required to sustain liquid water. The decrease in pressure has come about over the course of billions of years as a result of atmospheric erosion and other potential causes. Currently our leading theory is atmospheric erosion; however, it is possible that it is not accountable for all loss of atmosphere.

The planet Mars could be terraformed more easily than other planets because it is believed to be the planet most like Earth. In its early history, Mars’ environment was more like Earth’s, with a thicker atmosphere and more water that was lost over hundreds of millions of years (Terraforming of Mars). Additionally, Mars’ temperature range is somewhat similar to that of Earth, H2O (water) is present, and the length of the Mars day is close enough to the Earth day, so that organisms adapted to the Earth 24-hour day/night cycle could adapt to the Ma...   [tags: Physical Environment, Earth, Habitability]
