Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, being only larger than English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the "Red Planet". The latter refers to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars's surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to. Mars is a documentary and hard science fiction television series produced by National Geographic, which premiered on Novem , on their channel, and FX. Prior to its official air date, it was launched in a streaming format on November 1, It blends elements of real interviews with a fictional story of a group of astronauts as they land on the planet Mars.

Relative similarity to Earth. Earth is similar to Venus in bulk composition, size and surface gravity, but Mars' similarities to Earth are more compelling when considering colonization. These include: The Martian day (or sol) is very close in duration to Earth's.A solar day on Mars is 24 hours, 39 minutes and seconds.; Mars has a surface area that is % of Earth's, which is only.

  Mars Express arrived at Mars in and has up to this date conducted measurements for more than four years. Mars Express was also in operation during the period of the Rosetta flyby and performed measurements simultaneously. The Martian plasma environment has been studied extensively in the past. The remote viewing of Mars revealed in a CIA document gives details of a planet wide-catastrophe that led to many refugees leaving in spacecraft to safer locations over a million years ago. This leads to the intriguing possibility that a flash-frozen civilization recently found in Antarctica with cannibalized spacecraft nearby was the remnants of a colony originally established by.

The authors of this volume include many international scientists at the cutting edge of research into the Mars plasma environment. The volume documents the impressive leap forward in our comprehension of this complex environment in the years since the orbit insertion of Mars Express.

The Mars Plasma Environment. Editors: Russell, Christopher (Ed.) Contains the latest results on the plasma environment of Mars and its interaction with the solar wind.

Mars sits very exposed to the solar wind and, because it is a small planet, has but a weak hold on its atmosphere.

These results include mapping of the plasma environment with the instruments on Mars Express and Mars Global Surveyor, the latest numerical simulations, and theoretical studies.

Mars 3 and 5 provided the first significant data on the induced magnetosphere, deflection of the solar wind and erosion of the atmosphere.

PHOBOS-2 extended these measurements with a magnetometer and a plasma package, ASPERA (Automatic Space Plasma Experiment with a Rotating Analyzer). The strength of the book is the comparison of the similarities and differences in the plasma interaction of Venus, Mars and Titan; such comparisons have not yet been published.

This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers working in planetary science and space physics. THE PLASMA ENVIRONMENT OF MARS 35 Figure A sketch of the structure of the Martian plasma environment, depicting the major boundaries and regions in the equatorial plane.

The scales RM are Mars radii. obstacle is termed the magnetosheath. The shock-heated and turbulent solar wind. Plasma measurements were made on Mars-2, -3, and -5 with two different instruments.

A bow shock appears to permanently exist near Mars with a mean subsolar point height of km above the. Mars, fourth planet in the solar system in order of distance from the Sun and seventh in size and mass. It is a periodically conspicuous reddish object in the night sky.

There are intriguing clues that billions of years ago Mars was even more Earth-like than today. This schematic figure shows the magnetic and plasma environment of Mars.

As the supersonic solar wind – the stream of charged particles (protons and electrons) that emanates from the Sun – reaches the environs of Mars it is deflected and slowed at the bow shock that is formed in front of the planet's exosphere.

Summary This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Instrumentation Results of Observations Discussion Conclusion Acknowledgments. The Mars Express spacecraft carries the ASPERA-3 plasma instrument which comprises the ion spectrometer IMA with an energy range of 10 eV up to 40 keV, the electron spectrometer ELS (5 eV to 27 keV) and two neutral atom sensors.

Unfortunately no magnetometer was included in the Mars Express payload, but the MARSIS radar instrument allows.

There are ten books written by author Edgar Rice Burroughs in John Carter of Mars series and it covers everything from the red planet and the excitement in all the books never go down, not even a bit.

At the south pole of Barsoom, there is a River Iss to the Valley Dor, a sacred river where there are plant men that have flesh in their meals. It carries an instrument that will help it search for past signs of life on Mars -- the Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman & Luminescence for Organics & Chemicals instrument, dubbed.
