Mars Research Paper
Mars Research Mars, the red planet, is the fourth planet from the sun and the most Earth-like planet in our solar system.
It is about half the size of Earth and has a dry, rocky surface and a very thin atmosphere.
NASA has gone from one amazing accomplishment to another year after year since the space race.
Its orbit is very elliptical; Mars has the highest orbital eccentricity of any planet in our Solar System except Pluto.
Mass and Gravity: Mars' mass is about 6.42 x 10.23 Kg. A year on mars takes 687 Earth days; it takes this long for Mars to orbit the sun once.
Mars' Orbit: Mars is 1.524 times farther from than the sun than the Earth is.
