Life in Mars

Life in Mars

Who lives on Mars? What kind of life exists there? Undoubtedly, Mars is fascinating; almost everyone wants to know more about it. Nearly 100 geologists have confessed their belief that Mars is a strategic planet with hidden secrets. In answering the question: "Who lives on Mars?" We're challenged to think deeply about the surface of Mars and what scientists might find there. We learn about planetary science, space exploration, and human adventure.

Mars has always been fascinating; is it surprising that Curiosity Rover has sent back images of canyons carved by water, valleys that have changed dramatically with the seasons, and Martian sand dunes that move as if they are breathing? What's really surprising is that some creatures- reside on Mars and thrive. Essentially, Mars is both a planet and a satellite of the sun.

It is one of the four small bodies in orbit around the sun- these are known as terrestrial planets-along with Mercury, Venus, and Earth. From the sun, Mars comes as the fourth planet; it's smaller than the earth by about a third; it's slightly less massive. Mars is approximately one-half of the earth's diameter and a fourth of its mass. Interestingly, only Mercury's mass is smaller than Mars.

In 1914, Albert Einstein wrote a letter to a friend and colleague describing his most recent theory regarding the universe. In the letter, Einstein included the now famous equation: E=mc2. Although he never explained its meaning, he did say that we "live in an accelerated world"—a world of speed and acceleration where time is accelerating on the macroscopic scale (Mars' orbit around the earth) but is slowing down at the atomic scale (the orbits of electrons).

Einstein's provocative book examines one of the most compelling questions in human history: Who lives on Mars? The likelihood that humans will ever venture there may still seem like science fiction, but Mars became the obvious destination of adventure after the first fifty years had passed. Further, in Who Lives In Mars? British journalist Brian Gallagher explores old theories and new evidence about life on our neighbouring planet. He uses interviews with astronauts and scientists, visits to NASA laboratories and universities, astronomical observations from space missions, and a personal trip to the red planet to corroborate the topic.

We first asked, "Who lives on Mars?" and now, "Who Lives in Mars? Gradually, man has made the Martian habitat accessible to everyone. The publication contains the answers—and more—to the questions you've always wanted to know about life on another planet. Ultimately, an anthropologist dares to ask the question: What do we know about humanity's future? In the summer of 2004, NASA began to turn its attention to Mars.

What we learn about Mars and how to get there impacts every field of science. It's fascinating to explore the mysteries of Mars, from alien lifeforms and ancient mysteries to what it would be like to live there. Yes, we don't know if there are pink elephants or blue whales on Mars, but we know there are meteorites. And scientists want to find out about objects that-seemingly- travel from the edges of our solar system into Mars.

Recently, dramatic new images of the red planet have revealed that many structures exist in the high latitudes of Mars, which might be related to frozen water ice. Scientists often review the findings and speculate about what they mean for our understanding of life on Mars and its future. So, does life exist on Mars? There's lots of debate focussed on whether or not there is life on our neighbouring planet. Scientists have long believed that Mars had a wet and turbulent past (a kind of crazy-wet-ish past).

Still, with research finding that the waters from this molten ocean were never carried away by an atmospheric wind system, many are reconsidering their theories about Mars.

It seems that Mars has had its own version of meteor showers for decades, and there are-seemingly- no humans left to witness the event. There are signs Mars has water. What's strange is that it's so cold. So, are there living creatures on Mars? Who Lives In Mars? The book with this title explores what new scientific understanding might mean for how we understand our place in the universe. If a rocket could take us there, would we find evidence of life? What would it mean if we did? Again, the jury's out.
