September 24, 2014 was the most important day for India in the field of science. On this day, India's first interplanetary space mission, Mangalyaan, made history by reaching the orbit of Mars. The success of Mangalyaan was also big because India became the first country in the world to reach Mars in its first attempt.
By the way, more countries than India have sent their aircraft to Mars, but so far many mysteries of this red planet are incomplete. Today, we are going to tell you some things about Mars, which will surprise you.
Mars is the highest mountain in the Solar System, which is approximately 24 kilometers in height. It is 3x bigger than Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth.
One year of Mars is equivalent to 687 days i.e. 23 months of Earth because the planet Mars takes more time than the Earth in a rotation of the Sun.
Mars is also called a red planet, because iron oxides are found in very large quantities here. The soil and the mountains of Mars are made of this, hence it appears red.
In summer, the highest temperature of Mars is 30 degree Celsius, while in the winter it drops from zero to 140 degree Celsius. It is almost impossible for any person to live there.
There are two moons on the planet Mars and Phobos and Demos. These are both asteroids that can collide in Mars in the next 30-50 million years or fall on its surface.
Gravity power is much less than Earth on Mars. In such a case, if a person weighs 100 pounds (45.3 kg), then his weight on Mars will be 38 pounds (17.2 kg).
The evidence of water on Mars has also been received by the scientists several times in the form of ice. According to the BBC report, scientists believe that there was a severe flood that occurred on Mars about three and a half billion years ago, but it could not even know where it came from, how long it lasted, and how long it went, and then where did it go.
