Mars surface is a dry, barren wasteland marked by old volcanoes and impact craters.The surface is thought to be mostly basalt, covered by a fine layer of iron oxide dust that has the consistency of talcum powder. John Hillcoat The atmosphere of Mars is also roughly 100 times thinner than Earth's, but it is still thick enough to support weather, clouds and winds. Mars is home to the tallest mountain in the solar system.Olympus Mons, a shield volcano, is 21km high and 600 kmin diameter. The circumference ofMars around the equatoris about 13,300 miles (21,343 km), but from pole-to-pole Mars is only 13,200 miles (21,244 km) around. On average, the temperature on Mars is about minus 80 degrees F (minus 60 degrees C). On average, the distanceto Mars from the sun is 141 million miles (228 million km). By: Ellie and Carrie Gravity on Mars surfaceis much lower than it is here on Earth 62% lower Color Moons/Rings Interesting Fact Weather Rotation Size Temperature Distance From Sun Gravity Surface Mars is famous for its red color. Mars has two small moons named Phobos and Deimos. Their names mean fear and panic in Latin. Phobos and Deimos are not round like our Moon. Its surface is made of a thick layer of oxidized iron dust and rocks of the same color. Mars revolves or orbits around the Sun once every 1.88 Earth years, or once every 686.93 Earth days. Mars travels at an average speed of 53,979 miles per hour or 86,871 kilometers per hour in its orbit around the Sun. Mars is much like Venus-- it's very bright and therefore easily spotted in the night sky. Because of this, we don't know who exactly discovered Mars. It is named after Roman God of war.
