 What are some mind-blowing facts about the planet Mars

Planet Earth is mostly orange in colour.

 Iron oxide or rust particles in the Martian soil give the planet's surface an orange-reddish hue.

In comparison to Earth, the force of gravity is insufficient to keep an oxygen atom in a near-ground state. Mars, with a mass of around one tenth that of Earth, is smaller than half of our planet. Gravitational attraction is reduced when mass decreases.

Mind-blowing facts about the planet Mars

On its surface, there is a four-mile-deep valley scratch. More profound than any valley on Earth's surface. Such a place is known as the Valles Marineris. It would exceed the length of the United States if it were on Earth.

The highest mountain in our solar system is located on Mars as well. The height of the volcano Olympus Mons exceeds 21.9 kilometres, which is equal to 13.6 miles or 72,000 feet. A huge cliff, several kilometres (miles) high, defines it. It stands at a height of around 7 km, or 23,000 feet, at this spot. Its massive size makes it visible from outer space.

On Mars, not everything is orange. It features incredibly beautiful blue sand dunes. This image of a region of Mars is actually a color-enhanced picture. Though the true colour is more subdued, the colours is made possible by the clear variations in the sand. No, it's not orange.

Mind-blowing facts about the planet Mars

Hydrogen from Mars Can Escape to Higher Elevations Through the Atmospheric Transport System. Possible reasons include a 40% variation in the amount of sunlight reaching Mars per Martian year due to the planet's eccentric orbit. Natural fluctuations in precipitation and the amount of water vapour in the lower atmosphere due to the passage of the seasons. The sun's activity cycle, which lasts for eleven years, is another probable component.

A sand storm on Mars can engulf the entire planet.

Phobos and Deimos are the two moons of Mars. While both Phobos and Deimos are small, their non-spherical shapes are a result of their relative sizes. Phobos is significantly larger than Deimos. On one hand, Phobos is 22.2 km (13.8 mi) in diameter and 1.08×1016 kg in mass, whereas Deimos is 12.6 km (7.8 mi) across and 2.0×1015 kg in mass.

Mind-blowing facts about the planet Mars

Mars has a day that averages 24 hours, 37 minutes, and 22 seconds, compared to Earth's nearly 24-hour day on March 4th (24 hours, 0 minutes, 0.0003935 seconds). Amazingly, this causes a shift in the human circadian rhythm whenever a person travels to space. Darkness brings the human circadian rhythm closer to that of Mars than to the standard 24-hour day.

There is methane in Mars' atmosphere, and its origin is a mystery to scientists.

The tilt of Mars has a very similar tilt to Earth’s 23 degree tilt. Mars tilt is 25 degrees.
