Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, after Mercury. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often referred to as the "Red Planet" because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.
The rotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth, as is the tilt that produces the seasons. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano and second-highest known mountain in the Solar System, and of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons in the Solar System. The smooth Borealis basin in the northern hemisphere covers 40% of the planet and may be a giant impact feature. Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are small and irregularly shaped. These may be captured asteroids, similar to 5261 Eureka, a Mars trojan.
Alan J was first and correct with:
I think Phobos and Deimos orbit Mars. (Weren't they named after the god
Mars, I think.
The relentless, epic rain closed 3 of 5 lanes of WB I-80 about 12 miles west of here, as well as many local roads. We had a few hours of not-rain yesterday, and about 4 am it started hammering away again. 2017 is serving up incredible history, on several levels. I'm grateful to be here and be part of it, but damn. At what cost?
Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
Moons of Mars
Kevin K. in Washington, DC said:
Those are the moons of Mars.
Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.
Mars. It has been speculated they are captured asteroids because of how recently in history they were discovered, and their irregular shapes.
Billy in Cypress answered:
Phobos and Deimos are the moons of Mars, the red planet.
It is good to have you back. It was so lonely on the internet without you.
DJ Useo responded:
Well, I was wrong with the answer "pickles" yesterday, so it's sure to be correct today. Lol.
No, It's "Mars", as I've been aware of since a very young age. All that sci-fi as a kid, you know.
Sorry, Rosie... This guy should play Bannon on SNL...
So far here in 'The Mitten' it's been 'The Winter That Wasn't'...
I love the SCOTUS nominee criticizing Lumpy--sorry, but I'm too cynical to buy it. I think the guy is figuring he'll have an easier time getting confirmed if he appears independent. Lumpy is too stupid to think of that strategy, but Bannon puts inflammatory words in his mouth; nominee appears to criticize outrageous remarks, wins Brownie points, hoodwinks the gullible, and gets more votes as he sets himself up for life. Why are media & Senators buying this BS?!
Keith Olbermann cites 50 crazy & impeachable actions Lumpy has committed in just 3 weeks (9:36 minute video). GET HIM OUT OF HERE:
Patriot Act NSA Spying Unconstitutional Section 215 National Security Letters Must End
My name is Marc Perkel and I have decided to announce that I will not comply with the so called "Patriot Act" laws requiring me to disclose information about my customers. If I receive a national security letter I will immediately photograph it, post it online everywhere I can, and then make a video of me burning it. I will then await my arrest. If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.
